About Me

I am a graduate in Computer Science and have previously worked with the Co-operative Bank of Kenya where I was in charge of Mobile Banking. I am fascinated by the rapid growth of the ICT industry as it keeps me on toes in regards to improving my technical skills. I would like to further my skills in ICT in order to keep up with rapidly changing ICT world.
I am particularly interested in the areas of database and web applications, Networking and Information Security. Other areas of interest include providing technical support services to clients in regards to both hardware and software components.

My Business

I am in the ICT industry where I consider myself an expert in the areas of mobile payments and banking. I also have exposure in the areas of web development and hardware maintenance. I am currently based in Nairobi and would like to expand my business to other Counties within Kenya and eventually internationally. I am currently servicing a contract with one of the state corporations. I strongly believe that this assistance will help me to expand my services to Kenyans and the international community. I will keep you informed on the progress of my venture.

Loan Proposal

I intend to use the loan to build a chicken pen to enable me start raising chicken for sale during the festive season. The initial loan will be used to buy building materials for the pen house with any surplus being used to purchase hens and cockerels.

    I really appreciate the assistance provided in the last loan. I had ventured into the poultry business but most of the chicken were attacked by wild dogs. I am in the process of restarting again.

    I have just received the loan disbursement and will be purchasing materials for the construction of the pen house on Saturday. This project will go a long way in assisting me to becoming self-reliant.
