About Me

I am a Kenyan citizen aged 40, married and is blessed with four children among them, last born named zidisha. I am a business man who hails from a very poor background, but managed to prosper through the help of zidisha.I have experienced a lot of challenges in my life and my experience taught me self discipline. We could at times go without food because my father drank all the money and couldn't provide food for the day. I wish I were old enough, I would have taken him to court for the pains he caused us as a family. But on the other side, I may pardon him because I feel he made me realize that to archive in life, hard work must be highly emphasised.

My Business

I started business in a very difficult situation since I didn't have enough capital until I leant about zidisha, now I have numerous businesses, like wholesale and retail shop, cyber cafe, financial services and a p.s.v vehicle. all these achievements just came because of you lenders and that is why I appreciate you.

Loan Proposal

Due to the fact that there are more than enough customers, i have a plan to add laptops and printers for my shop to reduce work load to my machines. one laptop is going at $300 while a printer is about $ 250 . I also want to buy maize floor and sugar to supply to schools in case i become in a possession any remaining cash. i believe that this will increase my income and my customers will not wait for along time before service rendered to them. i believe on a 60-70% profit increase.
