About Me

Am a single mum of a 13 year old boy in class 8 and due to sit for the National Exam in November and proceed to high school God willing come next year . Am currently living in Section 58 with my mum after my dad passed on in 2002, where I also do my business. I went to Christ The King High school and later to Mohanlal Sukhadia University.I ventured into business out of passion to empower the youth. Am hoping that with Zidisha support am able to upgrade my computers to TFTs since I have the old models, to own a scanner, bidding machine, a photocopy machine and also grow and own my shop to be a bookshop too someday.

My Business

I started my cyber cafe business in 2007 at section 58 after i had searched for a job for a long time with no success.My main aim was to help youthful job seekers prepare for job interviews by helping them write their CVs,resume,job application letters,research work,thesis and article writing among others.I have 5 desk top computers and one employee who helps me out.On a good day I make up to Kshs. 3000 after deducting overheads,utilities and internet.The reason I joined Zidisha is because of the need to see my business grow to another level where I can buy more computers and get a bigger space for my business

Loan Proposal

Am currently applying for the third loan after successfully paying my two previous loans. My heartfelt gratitude to all my lenders for having the tender heart to assist me lead a better life and upgrade my business. My next project is to buy latest partitioned personalised tables for each client to use as they browse at my cyber since alot of people need privacy while working or doing their thing, so that the next person sitting next to you does not see what it is that you are doing on the computes or the internet and I have a budget of Ksh 25,000/= . I humbly appeal for your support again my lenders and may God bless you all abundantly. Thank you all again.

    I would like to reduce the amount since the items l was buying were on a higher side very expensive than expected hence l have spent more than expected. I will try my best to keep up with the installations ahead. Thank you.

    I was trying so hard to finish my debt by paying weekly 100 but unfortunately l don't have that option anymore. Times are hard and am not able to pay 1078 currently since am unemployed. That amount is way tooo much for me to find. Am comfortable paying 100 please make it possible to choose that option.
