About Me

I grew in small village called mahiga . I schooled there up to class eight and due to luck of fund I did not get further education . I left home so that I could look for a living to leave space for the other siblings and to look for money to assist my parents to educate the others. I got daily wages from big farm owners and for about three years i saved and managed to buy a bicycle. I started selling local vegetables from house to house with the bicycle. Due to dry seasons the vegetables were not available so i started cooking half cakes (kangumus). With kangumu i managed to save selling second hand clothes and shoes and save yet more to open a retail shop then due to competition i left shopkeeping to bakery up to date.with bakery through zidisha lender i have a house for my family .anyway am married and have seven children now five of them are at school .i like reading the bible with them when e are free. i like it so much. a part from my children i have three of my sister who was left by her husband. and we are doing good.

My Business

I bake cakes, teascorns breads and buns.I also deepfly dognuts.I prepare drinks like tea and coffe and other drink eg joise and sodas and sell it in my kiosk.The nearest area where you can find a producd of the same is ten km ,thus making my product of demand within my locality.I trust and believe people must eat to live. So decided to bring a unique product.I usually make 1500 to1700 kes dairy and save a third of my dairy profit.I use my profit in food suplement ,pay school for children and buy small sheep and goat and rear them to sell when they are big enough.I use to sell at good price.I am also used to give2000 to 3000kes to my old parents to cater for household.

Loan Proposal

Install the mixer and start another branch in another village. I'll make cakes for sale in different varieties.
I'll employ three people whom I have trained to make cakes.
The community will benefit of having commodities at their doorstep.

    Mr Maina was one of the first recipients of a Zidisha loan in Mugaa village. Repayments were on time and reliable and communication was good, with excellent final comment detailing impact of Zidisha loan whose profits allowed him to purchase a new motorbike for his taxi business and formalize ownership of two plots of land. Great impact in the wider community, improving local food security through small-scale corn retail business as well.
