About Me

I WAS BORN ON 06-02-1981 IN A SMALL VILLAGE CALLED CHAARIA IN MERU CENTRAL.I WENT TO SCHOOL IN CHAARIA PRIMARY FOR EIGHT YEARS,THEN PROCEEDED TO GITHONGO SECONDARY SCHOOL WHERE I COMPLETED MY SECONDARY EDUCATION .I LATER JOINED GITHONGO POLYTECHNIC WHERE I DID DESIGNS AND DRESS MAKING.
I LATER STARTED MY OWN BUSINESS IN EARLY 2010 .I AM HAPPY WITH THE BUSINESS AND JOINING ZIDISHA WILL BOOST ME ALOT.

My Business

I STARTED MY BUSINESS IN THE YEAR 2010 AT GITHONGO MARKET IN MERU CENTRAL. I DO DRESS MAKING AND OTHER CLOTHING DESIGNS.I AM HAPPY WITH MY BUSINESS.
I CHOSE THIS BUSINESS BECAUSE MY AUNT DID THE SAME BUSINESS AND USED TO TEACH ME HOW TO DO IT.I WAS VERY INTERESTED AND I JUST DECIDED TO DO THE SAME.
BASICALLY I USE MY PROFITS TO PAY SCHOOL FEES FOR MY CHILD AND ALSO REINVEST IN THE BUSINESS.

Loan Proposal

Dear lenders,
As everyone is aware of the world wide Corvid 19,all schools were closed untill further notice.It is therefore that i want to buy a laptop for my son so that i can teach him during this period on holiday.With the laptop, i will also need to buy storage materials like flash discs etc.

Income Source

Since the Coronavirus is here with us,it has basically not affected farming.Though times are tough in the farms due to intercouty lockdowns,we still have something to sustain our living
and for that matter i feel that repayment is not a problem . I have the experience before of handling the Zidisha loans and i believe in the same way i will succeed.
