About Me

I am an entrepreneur and a software engineer. I have schooled at different schools like Nyeri High School, Strathmore University and the University of Nairobi.

I have a strong passion for information communication technology (ICT) and use it to provide several solutions to my clients and community. I spend enough time updating myself with the latest technologies to make me a better software developer. I also have some certified public accountant (CPA) training which helps me in my day to day running of my businesses.

I believe so much in mentoring and in offering guidance especially to the upcoming young people. To this end, i usually attend and even host some programming groups and camps.

During my free time, i participate in some community development either through some NGO's or by visiting/aiding the less fortunate people like the sick children in some hospitals.

My Business

I run a legally registered Information Technology company called Kensoft Limited dealing mostly with web and mobile based application development. I provide mobile solutions like corporate bulk sms solutions and payments, travel/hospitality booking systems, web development, domain registration, web hosting and software solutions to both corporate and individual clients.

Loan Proposal

I want to add the loan to some money i have to be able to buy new computers and servers so that i can increase my productivity and the hosting space available for sale to my clients.

A good computer will cost me from around $350 to $500 in Kenya. Extra server space will cost me around $50 a month for the upgrade.
