My name is Wilfred Njiri, married and with 2 children. Am a Kenyan citizen born in central Kenya in kiambu county where I grew up and lived until I completed my high school. I later moved to the City of Nairobi for my college education. After I lost my job in 2010, I started a small business from my savings .I live in Kitengela, an area that is cosmopolitan where i interact with people from different cultures and backgrounds. The national park is near and at times we happen to see the straying wildlife . My two children a Girl and a Boy gives me challenge to work hard for their good performance in school , one aspire to be a banker the other one engineer, I have love for nature and love planting trees and flowers, I also love reading science news!
My business is small where i buy and sell mobile phones and accessories. Here in kenya, mobile phones have become extremly necessary because you use your mobile phone to access all banking services, from paying school fees to utility bills to communication and the entire country is connected so the demad is high, from $10 you can afford to buy a hand set and sell it for $14 - $16, so you almost make 50% profit, I wish to continue expanding the business with the lending i get, my profit usually goes to paying school fees, family and business upkeep, my desire is to grow my small business to become big enough to create employment to other people or even become a lender. I wish to thank all the lenders who would wish to fund me and other applicants, you are doing a noble task!
I will use the funds to stock mobile phone accessories, that is , batteries, chargers and sim cards. will buy battries each @$2 and [email protected] each, chargers [email protected] 0.6$ and sell each @1$ sim cards each @ 0.3$ and sell @1 with that,from my first lend i will get a profit of 40$ to 50$! That will be 100% profit in a month!
