About Me

My highest qualification is a degree in Chemical and Process engineering. My business is my side hustle which is mainly online freelancing. The greatest culture here in my country is the ability to exploit business opportunities to the maximum. In my free time, I enjoy watching motorsports and football.

My Business

As an online freelancer, I offer services in transcription, article writing, and professional consultancy services in chemical and process engineering. With the current COVID situation in the world, many people are resulting in work remotely and creating job opportunities along the same line. Transcription of meetings and school content is high in demand, online marketing is on the rise, and so is online consultancy. Typical costs include internet costs and hardware costs. Revenue comes from the payment made on offering these services.

Project Proposal

The funds received will be used to purchase an additional asset, a laptop to help with doing online gigs. I will also hire and train someone to work with the laptop hence creating an employment opportunity. The income derived from the business will be used towards repaying the loan and saving for the next project.
