About Me

I am the second born in a family of four siblings,Growing up was interesting,My mother being my teacher in a local primary school,that was miles away from home,We had to leave home earlier than my mother,If she got to the school earlier than us that would mean war.

Waking up early and getting to the house late,walking almost 2kms everyday to and from school,gave me strength to work hard and become a better person in life.

I want to be my own boss and give back to the community,thus deciding to put up my own business,I started small and my dream is to crow a clothing empire and create employment to our local youths and empower less women in my area.

I love togetherness and am proud to be a Kenyan,despite other differences we are one and God for us all

My 5years daughter want to be a dentist when she grows up,with my hardwork and will,she will achieve her dreams and make me a proud mother.

I love baking and trying on different cake recipes during my free time,They say I have a ''sweet tooth''.

My Business

I own a small clothe shop at Kingeero shopping centre-lower kabete.

I love fashion and so is everybody else,getting the best trends and selling at a reasonable price makes my customers satisfied,offering the prices depend on the item sold from Kes100/= on girls stockings to kes1000/= ladies jeans,Am able to pay shop rent,pay my helper daily, add more stocks weekly and daily home basic requirements eg food expenses.
I am looking forward to positive growth and expansion.

Project Proposal

I would like to add my clothing stock as needed by my customer. I would like to meet my customer needs to sell them my designer cloths in wholesale standards. I have half of the amount and I would like this loan to top up what I have to purchase my stock in bulks for warm clothing attires, before we get to the warm season.

    I would like to reduce my payments installments temporary,because of many business and personal expenses within the month of January,and also clients not able to pay up on time because of the same reasons.

    With the loan given I was able to purchase beauty products and more clothes,which the outcome is 30% stock purchased,my clients are promising they will be able to purchase when they can,I am mostly depending on walk in clients,which a positive outcome for my business.
