About Me

I am happily married and reside in Githurai Manguu and blessed with one child and he is aged 5 years. He is in kindergarten within our community. My Husband is a civil servant with the ministry of Health in Kenya.

I have successfully completed post secondary in sales and marketing hence I run a business which entails selling second hand clothes.

I started this business for the passion of economic development and prosperity for my life thus engaging in this rare business which many business people have declined to venture.

My Business

My business involves door to door services and it entails buying second hand clothes from Gikomba and reselling them in the following places Githurai, Kasarani, Mwiki, kahawa and Zimmerman.

My business is purely selling of males clothes like shirts, T-shirts, trousers, socks and many other things.

My business lacks adequate capital to ensure I have all my clients require hence through your support I will be in a position to get permanent location and store my products.

I have adequate skills and experience in sales and marketing to ensure my business is successful.

My business makes average monthly sales is Kshs 30 000 and average expenses is Kshs 23 000 and the average monthly profit is Kshs 7 000 but with the support my business will prosper.

Loan Proposal

My business involves buying and reselling second hand male clothes and I usually do it through hawking from door to door and offices to offices in Githurai, Kahawa, Kasarani, Zimmerman and other neighboring places. I intend to restock my business with adequate items which my customers requests hence through your contribution towards the Zidisha Loan, I will purchase male under garments worth Kshs 2000, branded male T-shirts worth Kshs 2000, Male caps worth Kshs 2500 and male casual trousers worth Kshs 2200. This stock will enable my business to meet the demand of my customers hence earning more proceeds which I will use to expand my business in preparation for high demand during Christmas festival. I will also use part of the proceeds to repay the Zidisha loan. Thanks for your interest and willingness to support my business and may the Heavenly Father bless you and your family.
