About Me

My name is Esther Ramadhani Otieno, I am married with 2 children, both are girls. I was born in a polygamous family of 15. In my mother's house, we are 7; I am the 4th born in the house. I have been helping my father in his shop and hotel since I was young. I have managed to learn a lot in the business sector. When I got married to Otieno, I desired to continue with business so as to help him care for the family. I have had experience as the manager of my father's hotel; now I believe I should own one and even grow further. I ask the lenders, through Zidisha, to help me achieve my dreams.

My Business

At the moment, I have a small chips box on a table in which I sell chips and mandazis (fried dough) to passersby opposite in Rang'ala Boys High School, adjacent to Rang'ala Girls teachers quarters. I'd love to open a tea room and also to build a small kiosk for selling the chips. I also hope to start a mobile hotel if, God willing, I go far with this project. My husband loves technology, so I hope he'll help me put cyber in the tea room too. My end game is to empower women and youths to be sustainable in whatever they do for a living. Thanks.

Loan Proposal

I'd start by thanking the Zidisha group for enabling the lenders to aid me by giving me the previous loan. I am hoping that this will help me move to the next level of my business. At the moment, I hope to add more stock in my kiosk so that I may reap more profits. I also want to buy a big umbrella to keep me and my goods away from the sun. Thanks.
