About Me

Am nathan mutwiri from Em-bu community living in the central province kiambu county.
I was born and raised in Em-bu before my mother was secondly married to my dad in Kiambu Limuru town.
I went to Em-bu east primary school and Manguo high school respectively.
After high school I dint join college due to finance and two years later after maturity I began going for labor's job like being a hands-man for house constructions and cultivation of land for huge farmers.
my parents are always busy selling Mitumba refurbished cloths to raise and support my siblings so as a man I have to work and at least support my siblings in there education.
my hobbies and likes are into plumbing works which o find it easy as it entails having a plumbing welding machine and understanding coupling (joint) connections.
I love spending time with my siblings and traveling.

My Business

I haven't set up a stable business joint but am into lab-our works which I get paid after working in the evening.
I work under professional carpenters and masons whom are well known and recognized in my region.
Am paid 8 us dollars a day which is spend 1 us d on lunch 0.5 us dollars on transport in-case its a job far from my region and 0.5 us dollars on airtime communicating and finding the job.
The remaining amount I use to support my parents in paying part of my siblings school fee.
I chose this job because most youth of my community are not interested and think its a dirty job and also to make sure I can cater for my needs and avoid being idle after high school.

Loan Proposal

it's now one year since I pledged to support my sister in her annual school fees. Right now, She's about $55 less the amount required. Once I acquire the $100, I'll be able to meet the school fees' needs, including the charged registration fee. It's immediate and suitably-convenient, according to my payment schedule.
