My names are Everlyne Khalai Shiraho, I am 39yrs old and I come from a very humble background. I went to Kaloleni primary School back in the 80s where education wasn't so much significant and we could get to class as late as 10am instead of 8am. I participated a lot in physical education games like acrobatics, running which I can hardly do right now. I passed in final exams and proceeded to high school in the rural areas, Here life was tough because we had to fetch water to afar river Sondu and get back quickly to class to study, the weather was harsh too but I thank God because I managed and passed the Kenya National Exams that's after 4 years of study. I went to College for Diploma courses after losing my dad so I could not continue with education and my dream is to go back to college one day and graduate with a degree.
Thatss when I started looking for jobs here and there and I got a volunteer job at an Asian cyber cafe. That time technology was not advanced in Kenya and we happened to be the first cyber cafe in Kisumu City in Kenya. I learn a lot about computers and my employer was impressed and put me on a payroll. I made the business grow and we kept buying more machines because we were known to have the best services even though other cybercafes were now opened. After a few years my employer was relocating with his family to Canada and that's when I got an eye opener and thought of starting my own cyber. The last pay he gave me was not enough but I managed to start a small cyber cafe business which I run to-date for the last 8 yrs. I have grown to buy more computers and a copier and am looking forward to grow by buying a bigger printing machine through your help. This business has helped me pay school fees for my 2 children since am a single parent I have also been able to buy food and pay house rent and other expenses. I will really appreciate always if you help me achieve my dream of going back to college to study business management and also buy bigger machine to print and produce books. Thanks in advance
This loan will enable me to buy more bags of charcoal for home supplies. I am renting an additional store in a different town to accomodate more stock hence expanding my business. This will increase sales tremendously because number of customers and demand will also go high.
