About Me

I was born in Roadblock village of Eldoret North,Uasin Gishu County 25 years ago.I grew up with a vision and greater ambitions of becoming a lawyer so as i advocate and lobby for the disadvantage in our society as a country as well as Africa.But wait,what happen to this great dream?.I started my primary education and completed my class eight with a certificate of kenya primary school education.(KCPE).In 2007,I join a local secondary school where i worked both hard and smart so as tl realize my dream of becoming a lawyer.In 2010 I completed my secondary school and passed with a mean grade of B(plain) but could not join university due to financial constraints.Instead I decided to become an entreprenuer doing a business of selling polythene bags in Eldoret market.After two years of saving,Ihad enough to start my own Glossary in Edoret,where i sell fruits and vegetables.

My Business

As I have fore mentioned already in my profile,I currently sell fruits and vegetables (glossary).Currently Eldoret town being the headquarters of Uasin Gishu County.This has attracted many people into the town who engage in various activities and at the end of the day they pass through my kiosk to buy some fruits and vegetables.This has made it worthwhile to sell my vegetables at a friendly prices which makes them to go faster.After restocking my business using the 1st loan I secured from Zidisha my current business is worth 150 dollars.This has given me morale even to expand further my business since am currently competing favorably in the market economy.And in that I say thanks to zidisha for the great financial support you gave me.To speak I have made a net profit of 130 dollars within my five months of operation after I received my first loan. I anticipate that these will grow up to at least 160 dollars profit.The profit obtained I have been using it to support my siblings and this anticipated profit I will continue to dive support to my siblings and pay university fees next year to do a business course.

Project Proposal

My , vegetable business is doing well ,but I need more marketing strategies and delivery to my customers also I wanted to expand my business and add a cereal shop and as usual food must be bought. This loan I would love to include cereal business because I have seen the gap in the market.I will also use little cash for branding and marketing on Social media and other platform. I believe in business if it's well strategized.
