About Me

I was born in a very humble family of six siblings in Marani Sub-County, Kisii County, being a fourth born in the family,
The advise from my parents that in a successful business you have to be hardworking, honest, ambitious, disciplined, patient and persistent on whatever you are doing as a living.

My Business

My business name is Hope Cyber Café at Gusii plaza, 1st floor room 114 in Kisii town, Kisii County, I aim in expanding the business, so that I can own upto 15 computers and sell stationery. I have been funded by Zidisha three times, the first time I bought a camera which i use in taking photos, the second time I bought Epson A4 size printer, third time I bought a drum unit for my photocopier and other spares and also bought A3 Epson photocopy machine. Am very much grateful for Zidisha family. I have really grown through the Zidisha loan, I have seen life changing. What I started as a one computer offering typesetting is now is now six, with printing and photocopying services, also most of the stationery are available.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to buy printing papers and special papers, normal printing papers will take approximately dollars 340 and special papers will take $ 480 inks and tonner will take $ 450. With this stock I am assured 100% profit because we are nearing August and December when there are so many events taking place like weddings and graduations.
