About Me

My name Moses and am so crazy about the outdoors, camping and adventure. I was born in Kisumu but lived most of my life in Nairobi. I schooled at Highway secondary school. Then pursued a diploma in Electrical Engineering at the Kenya polytechnic.
During my primary and high school years i had this great desire to go for camping but my parents could not afford to pay for any of these trips whether by school or church. The desire for camping was so great that i looked for every opportunity to go for a free camp through joining the scouts and st. Johns ambulance clubs in high school.After college i started volunteering to help at kids camps at the scripture union of Kenya and later trained as a team building facilitator through Young Life USA. This equipped me with the necessary knowledge to be able to plan and facilitate group camps to finer details.
With this knowledge at hand i venture out to start my own events management company. I facilitate Team building as well as organize and facilitate low budget affordable group camps for kids and youths from different institutions.

Kenyans are becoming more and more interested in spend their holidays on a camping trip and hence a high demand for camping Equipment. I believe that I am strategically placed to meet this emerging need.
I am married with two kids.
To sum it up, my hobby actually ended up becoming my carrier.

My Business

I am an events manager, i facilitate Team building for corporates and run group camps for various institutions. I also hire out camping equipment such as Tents, sleeping bags, cutlery and camping activities equipment .
Kenya is a fast growing economy .This mean more investors, companies and job opportunities. As this happens , it open more opportunities for companies to include team building as part of their day to day running. For this , they need competent team building facilitators which i 100% believe i am.
I chose to venture in this business since it first of all give me satisfaction, secondly i get to meet peoples need and help them come up with applicable solutions and lastly it brings food to my table.
A team-building session will give me an income of between $100 to $ 1500 per day depending on the size of the group that i am facilitating.While for the camping tents, i charge $ 2 per person per day .
At the moment my business is still picking up and i cant afford to have full time employees.I normally hire casual laborer who i pay from the profits. I also use the profit to support my family and keep my kids in school.
A part from this a large amount of my profits go to towards Education and provision of basic needs for orphans at Green Village Hope Children’s Home ,a children’s orphanage that helped found and direct. It is based in western Kenya. Feel free to visit our website www.greenvillagehope.org or search us on Facebook. This is home to 24 orphans and vulnerable Children. Right now we are constructing a boys dormitory and community early childhood education school.
My ultimate goals is investing in a property for my own campsite.

Loan Proposal

In our retail shop , we experience a challenge with the storage of perishable goods and lack of a cooling system for customers who want cold soft drinks. This has caused things like milk to go bad on the shelves which we end up throwing away. Also we lose business as some of our customer look for other alternatives of getting cold sodas.
We are therefore planning to invest in a large refrigerator worth $ 600 in which we store these commodities. This will increase our profits since we will not be throwing away spoiled milk . Also it will attract customers who require cold drinks especially during hot seasons.
Thanks in advance lenders for your contribution , You have no idea how much it means to me and my family to have your support.
Thanks once again!!!

    First leant to Moses back in January... What an absolute breath of fresh air :-)

    I love how solid your value's seem to be, and the extent you build a life in line with them :-) You really have your head screwed on, & seem to care about the things that really matter...

    Great communicator, giving back to those who need it, & the business in general is surely making people smile on a daily basis...

    Will happily lend to Moses for as long as he's posting loans (except when others beat me to it haha, generally funded pretty quickly which is great).

    Really glad you're on Zidisha Moses... makes me smile being even a small part in you & your business. Keep on spreading that good stuff :-) We need more people like you not only on here, but just walking the planet in general haha. Good luck with everything, Emma.

    He's quite the entrepreneur! I love all the photos and stories that he posts. His communication skills are top notch. So far he's managed his debt well and paid it off quicker than expected, when there's opportunity to.

    There's something about him that a lot of other borrowers here don't have. I suspect he'll go far in life. You can't go wrong working towards your dream, and he works hard toward his.

    Good luck, Moses!
