About Me

I was born in Kitui county and went to Central primary school in the same county. I proceeded to Mutomo Girls High School in kitui county. After completing form four i moved to Mombasa county to look for employment.

I started a small business of selling clothes. I am still running the business although i managed to get employment with an auctioneering firm.

what is unique about the culture where i live is that the people are very social considering Mombasa is a muslim community.

My hobbies and pastime include travelling, reading, adventuring.

My Business

I sell second hand clothes mainly ladies wear.

These clothes are in demand since ladies like moving with fasion such that when i get new arrivals they usually move fast.

I chose this business so that I can earn a living and more so to educate my children and better my life. I also like this particular business.

Per month i can make between Kes 40,000-50,000.

I use my profits to educate my children and also add stock to my business.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to buy more clothes for my business. I will add to what i have and buy new ladies shoes and hand bags. This will enable me expand my business as the new items will attract more customers. Effectively my earnings will increase and so is my profit.

My profit will automatically rise due to the new items.
