About Me

They say that there is never a good time to have children. When I was five months pregnant with my third child, my husband lost his job. I was a homemaker at the time, and he was the sole breadwinner. He spent the next few months looking for a job to no avail. I tried going around homes looking for a job to do, but no one would hire me because I was pregnant.

Within the next few months, we sold almost everything we had and moved to a one-roomed house. We struggled for the next few months, especially after my daughter was born. However, my cousin told me of freelancer.com, and I joined and started writing SEO articles for $1/500. I had to work very hard in order to get enough to survive each month, but I managed.

My Business

I am a freelance writer with Freelancer.com, iwriter.com, and Zecrys.com. I also do transcribing now and then. I use my money to run my home and to take care of my three children. I have a 4.5 star rating on Freelancer.com, and I am a premium writer on iwriter.com.

My dream is to one day have my own website and blog where I can share my opinions and get paid for them. I am also a poet who would like to one day get my poems published. I am a lyricist who has submitted my lyrics to various publishing companies in the USA. All of them have been accepted, but they always ask for money to publish them (up to $600 at Nashville's Paramount Song Records). I do not know how sincere these companies are, but having my lyrics published is my long-term dream.

Loan Proposal

I am a writer. My computer is my voice. I have been writing for content mills for more than one year, and it is my means of livelihood.

Unfortunately, last week, my hard-disk crashed. I lost a lot of information and pictures of my kids. But worst of all, i lost my means of livelihood. I had just paid my bills, and I had very little money left on me.

I have been working from a cyber, but it is simply too expensive. I work when I can spare some money after feeding my kids. It is almost mid-month, and I am yet to raise enough money. I am afraid that at this rate I will find my self in a vicious cycle of constant need and desperation because of lack of money.

I was hoping for help to purchase a new hard disk for my computer. This way I will be able to work cheaply from home.

I have already identified a Seagate 320 GB Hard-disk here in Nairobi. After paying the Zidisha fees, I will have just enough to purchase the hard-disk and to pay for internet for the remaining days. I am positive that if I receive this loan, I will be able to work hard to repay it.
