About Me

I have a 10 year old boy called Wycliff, he's in class 4, and a 5 month baby girl called Ivana. I live with them in Tena estate in Umoja, where my son attends a private school. I have a diploma in Business Administration and this helps me so much in managing my business. I am very hard working, honest, focused and God-fearing. I had planned to start a business for a long time, and finally pursued my passion and made it happen. I am now looking to expand, by importing the items myself in order to get more clients and profit. I use my earnings to support my children, and sometimes my brothers who are not yet stable. I pay school fees for my son, pay my bills and save the rest. I'm saving up in order to buy land where I can build my house and stop renting property. Then I can use that money to do other constructive things in life. I am looking forward to achieving this dream.

My Business

My main business is in supplying electronics. I usually look for business in towns outside Nairobi as some people cannot travel into Nairobi for their electronics, and don't have to pay for delivery if it comes from me. Sometimes I face challenges where my orders are so large but I do not have the capital to buy enough stock in the capital, and thus I cannot meet demand. Generally, the returns are good, so with enough capital I will be able to grow very fast, and will be able to meet all of my customers demands.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to purchase the following phones ordered by my customers. I will buy a Samsung phone worth 12000 kshs (141$ ), a techno phone worth 8000 kshs ( 95 $ ) and a nokia phone worth 15000 kshs (177 $ ). As soon as the phones are delivered and get paid and will invest this into the business. I am very grateful to the Zidisha team and all the lenders. May God bless you all. This loan will positively change my life as I will be able to meet my customers demands, and therefore not struggle to pay my bills and to take care for my children. I urge you, my lenders, to help make my dreams come true. Thank you so much and may God bless you.

My Business

My business deals in supply of electronics.i usually look for orders in towns outside Nairobi where they find it far to leave there work closed to come and purchase the items in nairobi so most of them prefer to be supplied.they also prefer being supplied because they dont have to pay on deliverly so they can be left sell the items and pay at the agreed date.it is also hectic to look for this items because we just dont buy anywhere i have to move around compare the prices being offered and the quality in the market.so they also find it easier for them to get the items at their door step.the most challeges i get are sometimes i have orders but the capital isnt enough so it becomes difficult for me to supply.so i dont answer to some client because i know i can not meet the demand due to capital problem.but generally the returns are good,so with enough capital i can grow very fast,because i can be able to supply to all the orders
