About Me

I am a single lady living with my younger sister and brother. We live in Ongata Rongai. I am a form four leaver, i sell building materials such as sand, building stones and ballast. I started the business to support my younger siblings in education after our parent passed on in 2005.I have been doing small business in ongata rongai for the last ten years. I have experienced running small enterprises and i have now moved to construction.with the previous loans from zidisha i have been able to expand my business and now i am able to take large projects.the loans have been of much help and i am planning on opening a small retail shop

My Business

My business involve buying materials in large quantity and selling them to people at their local disposal. my business is situated in a developing area making it preferable to others that are far from the construction site. The business is profitable because i deal with non-perishable goods and there is nothing to lose though sales delay. The business makes sales of ksh 50000 per month where ksh15000 is a profit.

Loan Proposal

I am looking forward to complete an on going project. I am requred to supply the construction materials like stones, sand,timber and ballast. I also need to catter for the labor force as i wait to be paid money for the work done since am usually paid on phases. I promise to be faithful on paying back my loan with total commitment. may all Zidisha group be blessed for uplifting people like me to make a better living. Long live zidisha.
