About Me

My name is Richard Momanyi. I was born in Kisii county which is in the western part of Kenya. The main occupation there is farming and my parents are small scale farmers. I grew up helping them in the farm and we also used to keep some domestic animals like cows and goats.

I am married and looking forward to starting a family with of two children.

My Business

I do business in the coastal town of Mombasa city where I sell household items in a small shop. I sell items such as cooking oil, maize and wheat flour, sugar etc. I serve people who live in my neighborhood.

I make around $100 per month but I am hoping to increase this amount as I keep expanding the business. This amount will inch upwards due to continued support I am getting from Zidisha.

Project Proposal

If given this facility, I will introduce a utensils section within my kiosk. A have a little unutilized space which will be ideal for this expansion. With the money, I will buy the following

1. 5 dozen plastic plates total $35
2. 3 dozen table spoons total $ 20
3. ½ dozen thermos flasks total $40
4. 3 dozen ceramic cups total $45

This will give me a solid start in this new venture. I hope to make quick sales and this will enable me repay the loan since my income will increase a lot.
