About Me

My name is CLEMENT JOHN NG'WANDU, I was born in Iringa region in a family of four children
I am 34 years old, I am married to an excellent wife and I have two small children.
For many years I have lived in Iringa region and this is where I got my education.
Due to the geography of Iringa region, many people engage in agriculture as well as animal husbandry,
despite doing those jobs, farmers and breeders are affected by skin diseases such as fungus and other problems that affect the skin.
After researching some areas, I found out that this problem is bothering my people,
since I received soap making training from SIDO, that's when I started making soap as a solution to the problem

My Business

I started making soap 3 years ago here in Iringa, I have a small factory that makes me make the soaps
the biggest buyers are breeders such as Masai, Mang'ati as well as farmers from different areas.
since this business requires me to travel a lot, I rely on auction sites to sell my products
I work 5 days a week from monday to friday.
Through this soap making business it has been beneficial for my family and my community as a whole.

Project Proposal

I like to increase production, although I am currently doing it in a small part, I like to expand my business so that I can provide employment opportunities for young people in my area as well as women
I want to buy raw materials to make soap. The quantity of raw materials will make the production bigger and so I will need more workers.
My current request is two and a half hundred thousand shillings.
I will be very grateful for your loan as I will continue to improve the health of my customers or users of my product.
Also this loan will improve the development of my community
