About Me

I am a man born on 21 May 1981. I completed my primary school at Chibelo Primary School and my senior secondary at Kabulonga Boys High School in the year 2001. I am the last born in the family of five, and I am the father of two.

My Business

I started the business in 2013. I basically repair mobile cell phones of all brands, fixing both hardware and software related problems. To work efficiently, I use professional tools and software.

I recently benefited from Zidisha loans: I have been able to use my business's increased profits and diversify into buying and selling used cell phones and importing good quality cell phone accessories, as inspired by my customers' needs and demands, as there has been overwhelming demand for the products.

Loan Proposal

I recently had an accident and fractured my foot bone, which has affected my business as I have been unable to order new stock for the business. The loan will be used to order new stock for the shop, which are phone accessories and used phones.

This will boost my profits by almost 50%, which will in turn contribute to my long-term goal of owning a bigger shop with a variety of services to offer. I will also use part of the profits to better my family livelihood. Below is a breakdown of things I will order:

-Assorted cheap used phones.......................$200

-Assorted phone accessories.......................$300

-Shipping fees....................................$46

Thank you.

    Perfect score on repayment! Alberto's work is very important because of the high cost of cell phones and the dependence on cell phones for everything, including universal use in everyday transactions in markets and stores. This is an example of Africa leapfrogging over the obsolete technologies that still dominate the developed world, in this case old fashion cash and credit cards.
