About Me

I had a great plan for my future,soon as I was done with my K.C.P.E and K.C.S.E exams where I passed with a B plain. Failing to secure a place in university, I opted to do Electrical installation. After obtaining a certificate I was at it again, this time obtaining a Diploma in Information Technology.I was able to get a short term employment but after It was done I tried to secure another employment to no avail. This made me to revert to my passion in electrical installation and repair. I have done this for about 2 years now.The uniqueness of the society I live in is that they believe in working hard for survival and laziness is a serious offense. I have a little daughter who is yet to get into school but I would like her to grow to be a hardworking engineer. During my free time, I play football,programming,surfing and watch a few football matches.

My Business

My industry is service industry. I do sell electrical fittings,repairs and installation . My field is ever expanding as economy grows.This means that people are building more houses thus requires my goods and services. I chose the business ,firstly it was my passion in early childhood and secondly I saw a business opportunity.my costs are mostly through buying of tools,overalls and electrical fittings and ducts. I use my profits for my own growth and business growth through reinvesting.

Loan Proposal

Hi Lenders?
I have decided to up my game in electrical installation.Recently, I have gone for overhead cabling training and I loved it. The only limitation now , I don't have pole climbing shoes of my own and hiring is a bit expensive. With the above amount of loan I will be able purchase a full kit of climbers and safety harness belt. The set is retailing at $100 and therefore I will add the balance from my savings.
I will benefit a lot as I have seen an opportunity that is not as crowded as the indoor installation.
To kind lenders, thanks in advance as you have really changed my economical life positively.
