About Me

Am jackline matheka, the last born in a family of 6,we are 4 girls and 2 boys,i started thinking of owing my own business while i was a young girl .Icould collect old newspapers and plastic papers bags displaying them to my friends to buy pretending that it was a boutique . I did so since i always admired my aunts who had a big boutique . She sold both male and female wear. I worked so hard in high school and my dream grew bigger. Now i wanted to be a manager ,managing my own companies.
It was very hard for me to continue with my studies since my mom was unable to raise my college fees. i decided to work at my aunts boutique at least to get some little cash to sustain me and also pay a little for my computer classes .
we had some projects which we still have them right now . we saved some cash after selling the products and we shared the profits at the end of each month. the cash helped me to overcome some hardships.

I had enough experience to start my own business and had some cash which i had saved from the project.
Youths in our community are so unique from other communities since we have several projects which support us in our daily life.i would like my children to be pilots and doctor .
my hobby is reading, visiting children's homes and sick in the hospital.

My Business

the goods i provide to my clients are clothes, shoes and beauty accessories .
this kind of goods are useful since people cant survive without clothes . they are ever in demand since i sell them at an affordable price and the latest fashion.
it was actually my dream since i was young and i had enough experience from my aunts boutique.
There are several costs i incur such as; rent , electricity transportation and some government tasks.
i use the profit in reinvestment in growing the business ,paying my school fees and also my employer .

Loan Proposal

i would add more stock. ie clothes and shoes . total price in dollars is $4,450.
after my business grows , i will start a community development of poultry which after implementing it we will be able to make some profit out of it hence doing some other things with it .
