About Me

Hello Lenders!

My Names are Mercy Muthoni, I am 27 years old, married with two children.I am a Business Administrator by profession. I worked as an Administrator for a few years and then decided to Join my Husband and help him run his online business.

After graduating from college, I wanted to be a Gospel Musician but my husband could not afford production fee charged by the leading music labels in Kenya.So, I decided to look for a job and shelved the dream of becoming a musician.I worked for a few years and then my husband asked me to resign from the Job and assist him in his online business which had started growing gradually.Today we are great partners and the business is running smoothly.

In future, I want to revive my Music career and record the songs I had already written.I also aspire to spend my free time as a volleyball coach in a local club as I am good at the game.


My Business

My Husband and I are partners in a business that we run online through Upwork marketplace platform.We offer Accounting and Research services,he heads the Accounting section and myself the Research section of the business.Since we started the business It has grown strength to strength and now we are servicing a long-term client base of about ten.Ranging from corporate to individuals from Europe,Australia,Canada and United States.

Through zidisha loans we plan to expand the business and create Jobs for the youths here in Kenya.

Loan Proposal

My Husband and I run an online consultancy business via oDesk marketplace platform. We started in the year 2012 and since then the business has been growing gradually. Currently we are servicing about fifteen clients from various part of the world mainly Canada United States, Europe and Australia. We also have a few local clients. Through Zidisha loans we want expand the business to generate more revenue and also create jobs for the youths in our local area.

During peak seasons I sometimes have to work for long hours in order to meet strict delaines. Currently, I do not have a good office chair; I am using a plastic chair locally made by a plastic manufacturing company. It is uncomfortable to sit on that chair for Eight to ten hours in a day. When granted $50 loan I will use this cash to buy a good office chair, which I believe will improve my productivity and also reduce health related problems resulting from bad sitting chairs.

Yours Sincerely,
Mercy Muthoni
