About Me

My name is Samson Akomo Olweny born in 1965 to a Christian family. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and saviour in 1979 and currently I am serving as a Bishop in our ministry.

I live next to Okana Primary School in Okana village, two kilometres from Okana business station along Nairobi-Kisumu Highway and 10 km from Kisumu City.

I got married to Janet and we are blessed with one son and six daughters; David, Roseann, Naomi, Ruth, Dorcas, Jacklyn and Favour.

I have been passing through challenges which demanded much money through hard working that I involved in. Business has been my passion but due to the high demand of getting enough funds to cater for my basic needs such as; food, shelter, schooling of my children etc.

I have a small business of grocery which I have done for 20 years now.

My Business

My business of groceries was started in 1995 in my residential home. I had opportunity because most of my customers were coming from within and the challenge was that I was not able to have all that are needed in my groceries business. If funded with Zidisha will enable me to expand my business and support my family. I know that my potential customers will get all they need from my business.

Loan Proposal

If my loan is fully funded, I will use the whole amount to increase my stock which has really gone down due to very hard times here in Kenya.

This will enable my customers to get most of what they need for their daily use and also help improve my interest hence my living standard.

I expect my interest to go up by at least US$10.

Thanks so much for funding full my loan application.
