Story
About Me

Am a mother seven four boys and three girls,I have lived in Mariwa Village for the past 30years and am not intending to move any time soon my last born son is studying law at Mount Kenya University two of my sons are in the Army and my other son is a business man,all my three daughters are teachers I guess they took after their mother,am a Diploma holder in Education Arts and I own a Nursery and Prue-primary school here at Mariwa,during my free time I offer guidance and counseling at our local Church and I also sing in the Church Choir.I started my business after noticing the importance of education in our village since i understand that the root of education is what determines the quality of education and in my village most parents did not understand the importance of early childhood education so I started the Nursery school with an aim to better the standard of education in our village.

My Business

My business involve managing a school where I and my staff we teach children who are starting school these are aged 3years and above for baby class is 3years to 4years and then Nursery is 4years to 5years then is Prue-Unit that is 5years to 6years,then from there we graduate them to early Primary that is from class 1-3,in my School I have five teachers and two cleaners and one secretary so in total I have 8staff members,business is good since the community appreciates our work and they are very co-operative

Loan Proposal

I need an amount of Ksh56,500 equivalent to USD 560 with this amount I will buy building materials like sand,gravel and iron sheet (mabati) that I will use to build one more classroom in my school this will be helpful indeed for my children will have more space to learn and they won't be conjested in class,I will get more children and also maintain the ones I have and the children will get better grades with their performance at school and also I will make more money to save and repay my loan well thanks.
