About Me

I am the third born in a family of seven with both parents , one brother and three sisters. I live in Nyahururu town. Nyahururu is in Laikipia County 100 kilometers from Nyeri town on your way to Nakuru town. I am a business man by occupation and I am an O level graduate at Kieni High School. I started a business because I had always dreamed of being a very prosperous business person in life. I buy and sell some items like footwear's, clothes, handbags for both men and women, I also sell school uniforms and bags and some other items that can be displayed in a boutique.

My Business

My business is a sole proprietorship that means it is a single partnership as I am the sole owner of the business. My goods and services are of high quality since I sell new items. Customers prefer to shop at my boutique because their preferences are met and I have variety of products affordable to any person. That raises the demand for my goods. My business is located at the town square and there is a wide range of market and that makes it much profitable. However the only risk that i encounter at my business is low demand for school items like uniforms because the are some kind of seasonal, their demand rises during the school re-openings. I manage to make a sale of kshs 60000 per month making it possible to cater for my monthly costs of kshs 25000 including house rent and electricity bill.

Loan Proposal

Thank you you zidisha for giving me this second chance to access a loan. When I get my loan I am going to open a new shop as a branch right here in Nyahururu. This will create a wide range for my market for my new clothes and shoes. To achieve this I need some help from lenders and that is around $300 in addition of what I have. And so I am humbly requesting my precious lenders to lend me the amount so that I can have the branch and with that am sure my profits will always be super normal and emerge a successful business man. Thank you very much.

    Hi John

    You have not made a single payment so far and have not communicated either. This is no way to treat lenders. Please tell us what is going on.

    Thank you.

    Hallo lenders, i am rescheduling my repayment schedule due to unavoidable reasons that emerged and they have affected my business operations and I will be back on the track within no time and for that reason accept my apologies and I will adhere to the new repayment schedule as I have indicated. I would like to thank you for your patience and mostly your kindness and your willingness to see my prosper. With God am sure I will make it to success and emerge a successful business man as it has always been my dream and any other working hard person. I promise to make my repayments on time with no delay. Thank you very much.

    I suppose you had a good fathers day, and I also surprised my father with a present. I appreciate every father in the world and if you are a father and a member of zidisha, may God bless you very much for being a good father.

    Hallo every one, today was a great Saturday, I made a high amount of sale of ksh 5,000 and that is 60 USD and that marks a good weekend and this implies that I will not have any problems with my new branch. Thank you very much.

    Is this a picture of you? It looks like it was taken from a magazine. It would also help if you provided your national ID card and a community leader's recommendation.

      Thank you Mr. Cris for your comment but that is actually my real photo and I am going to upload several to you. The first one I am at my shop, second am playing a piano and the third one was my previous profile picture and it is precisely the one you doubted but since it is a passport I changed it. Thank you.
