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

Hello Lenders!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow our business, I appreciate your kindness very much. I successfully acquired a nice office chair with the first Zidisha loan. I can now work for longer hours without backache problems.

I would like to apply for a second loan to purchase a water dispenser for our home office. This will save us time spent on making coffee in between tea breaks while working. We are currently using gas to boil drinking water and also make coffee which is time consuming and also costly. With this equipment we will be able to use time saved in a more productive way for the growth of our business.

Thank you and have a happy new year 2015!
