About Me

My name is Samuel Kinyua ,I was born in a village called mugijo in chogoria,mara county in Meru.I joined nursery school in 1989 and completed my primary Education in 1999 then i joined secondary school in 2000.I completed my o`level in 2003.I joined a computer training college thereafter i went for a Dj school,after which i stayed for one year at home not having any other thing to do because of financial problem,because my parent were not able to cater for my further education.Then their after i found a company at Thika that was willing to offer me a job of which i worked for 3years.In 2008 there was a retrenchment of which i lost the job from that company,then i went back at home and i had a lot of hardship because i had no money to cling on.I started working for people here and there,through that i saved some money of which i used to buy my Dj Machine which i started using for training some young men boys and girls at a reasonable fee.The money i was getting was not enough for my upkeep because i had a lot of responsibilities.

My Business

My business is DJ school,since i was young i had a passion of having my own dj school of which i knew it has a lot of income generation.Due to financial problem i was unable to get all the facilities that are required in a DJ school.The time i had from my friend about Zidisha organization he give me hope of improving my school so that i can be able to attract more students to register for the training of DJ.The DJ school was giving me about 20,000 of which i used to pay my rent of 10,000 every month,transport from my home place to my business place per month i was spending 2,000.Stationary costs me 1,200,watchman salary was 3,500 of which he is complaining a lot for the poor payment.The balance i remain with i use it to buy food in the house of which is not enough to maintain my family.After hearing story about Zidisha i know iam going going to improve my business so that i can be able to get something to sustain my family and improve my business.

Loan Proposal

When i receive the loan i will immediately by some screws and oil needed for my DJ machine repair,this will enable my academy run without any failure us it is now.There is a lot of competition due to high demand of young youths who are much interested in training to be a DJ professional but the challenge is lack of enough capital to run and repair the machine.But with you Zidishsa team all will be well.may God bless Zidisha entire team very much.
