About Me

I started my primary education 1999-2008 then joined in secondary school in 2009-2012 then later trained Diploma information technology 2013-2015
since there was no employment i started my business. I am single mother and there are so many challenges am facing more so taking care of my kid who demands a lot from me, paying for my rents that is business premise and my house where i life. Food is also a challenge . I had to start the business because i couldn't able to feed myself and the kid or survive without money. I borrowed my friends some starting capital which helped me to start the cyber services. Our place is full of Bananas and every household has at least a banana and we are called banana land. We also have tea plantations and avocados are plenty.
