About Me

I was born in 1976, 35 years ago in a village named Kimangu, in the Rongai district of the Nakuru county. I began primary school in 1981 at the Kangaprimary school. I continued my schooling until 1988, when I received my primary education cetificate. I was not able to continue going to school because We did not have enough money, so I stayed at home, helping my parents until I got married. Because my husband was not employed, he gave me permission to start a business, so we could support our family. He gave me a little bit of money, which I used to buy some shoes. Today I continue to buy shoes, and I have a good stock that attracts many customers. We have been blessed with two children, and we are very happy. I am living in Salgaa, about 5km away from the town of Rongai, in plot no. 38.

My Business

As I have already said, I started my shoe business 10 years ago in Salgaa centre. I love my business, and although there is a lot of competition, I keep my customers happy by giving them what they want. This business is good because you can't find a person going bear foot. The business helps us support our family financially.
