About Me

I am a Kenyan citizen aged 40, married and is blessed with four children among them, last born named zidisha. I am a business man who hails from a very poor background, but managed to prosper through the help of zidisha.I have experienced a lot of challenges in my life and my experience taught me self discipline. We could at times go without food because my father drank all the money and couldn't provide food for the day. I wish I were old enough, I would have taken him to court for the pains he caused us as a family. But on the other side, I may pardon him because I feel he made me realize that to archive in life, hard work must be highly emphasised.

My Business

I started business in a very difficult situation since I didn't have enough capital until I leant about zidisha, now I have numerous businesses, like wholesale and retail shop, cyber cafe, financial services and a p.s.v vehicle. all these achievements just came because of you lenders and that is why I appreciate you.

Loan Proposal

I have identified a newly started secondary school in our area, I intend to supply them with the food staffs. they had given me a tender of supply so i believe that if i get this loan, then i could stock more for them. The items 1. Maize flour is $17.5 and sugar is $30. This will generate more income to me towards the fulfillment of my p.s.v vehicle dream and to the school, it will create availability of the items reducing the cost of traveling very far to get the items
