About Me

My name is Lucia Makanda from Busia County.I was born in a family of 6,3 boys and 3 girls.I went to St Marys girls primary school and later joined Ourlady of mercy girls.I later joined local polytechnic for computer packages course.
I got a job as a secretary but i could hardly meet my living expenses.I decided to save and open my own cyber cafe,this is a decision i dont regret.
I always ensure my network is good all the time,i have installed backup network system so that in-case networks are down i can use the backup system to ensure my clients get the best.
My I have three children two boys and a girl.The boys want to be doctors while the girl want to be a nurse.I always work hard to ensure they are in school always so that they can achieve their dreams.
I love children and so during my free time ,I always visit children in their nearby orphanage sing and dance with them.Its always alot of fun.

My Business

I provide internet services,photocopying,Skype call and scanning.This services are unique because i provide them under one roof and so clients get all they need under one roof.
I decided to start this business because i had knowledge and passion about,although the start up capital was quit intensive,i started small and has been expanding with time.
In a month i spend $130 on rent,electricity and water. My revenues are $300,in a good month I make $170 in a good month.
I use my revenues to pay for my kids fee and take care of my mother.

Loan Proposal

I thank you dear lenders, for helping me improve my business. With zidisha I can always run my business and pay my loan with little stress. Through the loan my business has grown and I am now in the process of opening a second branch,I have already acquired a room strategically placed near a college,where there is no printer and photocopying services. I would use the loan to add to my savings to buy a printer/photocopier worthy $1300 ,that would enable me to serve my clients diligently. Thank you.

      Note that often amounts are adjusted for loss in currency value. Lucinda's records show 100% repayment. It would be nice if you could rescind the negative feedback or the moderators could adjust.
