About Me

As a child I lived in Naivasha, Kenya , awesome place. I was an adventurous kid and would take long walks to the hilly areas of Naivasha to get wild fruits. In college I studied accounting and in University I did a business degree with IT.

The last semester of my University was pretty hard, my parents were broke and I didn't have a source of income, that's when I began doing online jobs and got money to clear the school fee and have been freelancing online ever since.

Kenya is a beautiful country, with beautiful people, although sometimes people seem not to appreciate this. But as a people we are very hospitable.

I would like my children to be happy when they grow up; whatever path they choose as long as it's legal I'll support them be it music, engineering or whatever. I would also like them to add value to the world :).

In my past time I enjoy listening to music, my taste is diverse so I enjoy most genres of music; sometimes I read lyrics at genius.com .

That's me in a nutshell :).

My Business

I'm a freelancing front-end developer, so my job is to make sure that web users have a pleasant experience when using a website or a web application.

My services are important since the internet is used daily by almost everybody; I love the web too.

I chose this line of business since I am good at it and for the love I have for the internet.

My typical costs are internet charges=-£5,
, a good Performance PC=£120,
quality screen and software which can be around 120 dollars per month excluding the laptop and screen; revenues vary but generally amount is 300 dollars per month.
Currently i have 70 dollars and the loan from zidisha will boost my business in terms of tools acquisition.
The profits I invest back to improve the business and acquiring more skill; the rest I pay off rent and travelling expenses and other living expenses, sometimes I am lucky and get to save some :) .

Loan Proposal

I am requesting a loan to buy a work laptop which will cost about 270 dollars.

This will stop me from relying on my friend's laptop and will make me more efficient in my work.

This a one time purchase, so this like capital for my business.
