About Me

About Me
My name is Mrs. Mary Teresah Mzae. I am married to Mr. Elijah Mzae Mwaita and we
are blessed with two daughters and two grand-daughters. We reside in Wundanyi Town
in the coastal part of Kenya. After working as an Executive Assistant in Uap Insurance
Co. Ltd, for 15 years, I took early retirement to join my husband in Ministry at
Wundanyi as a Pastor. I have served together with my husband for over 10 years as a
trainee pastor and leader of the women.

I felt the need to join a college where I would be trained in ministry work so that I can do
it professionally. By God’s grace I was admitted for a diploma course in Christian
Ministry at Scott Christian University based in Machakos which I completed in
November, 2016.

My Business

I am now pursuing a degree course in the same which is costing 4,500 dollars. In my
pursuit of finding how I can raise this money, My sister Ruth Musela introduced
me to Zidisha and after I heard everything about this group, I felt you are the right
people to assist me with a loan to facilitate my studies.

Being a pastor’s wife, I am a leader of over 150 women with different ages, status and
careers. The course I am doing includes Community Development and Child Care. In
order to impact these women, I need to be fully equipped professionally.

Loan Proposal

I I would like to request for a loan of USD.186.9 to pay for my University Degree in Theology, which I have just started, I completed the Diploma Course. I have really struggled to pay for the Diploma by selling the little chicken I have always done as a hobby but since now they want us to pay upfront, and I couldn't manage because I can only sell the chicken per week to a near by hotel which is the village it has been a challenge for me until my sister talked to me about the Zidisha Family, who she said had assisted her in her business and can also fund education loan. This made my day and I said I have to join this family it is a noble family, and then I was encouraged by my mentor who has also encourage me and talked to me what Zidisha is all about.
Thanking you in advance for your assistance.
