About Me

I was born 30 years ago at a village in Western Kenya and went to school there. I grew up with a vision to be a career Journalist. While in Primary School, I ventured in poultry where I reared local breeds and sold both eggs and chicken to the teachers and neighbors.
When I sat for my KCPE, I scored good grades and joined high school where I also completed and later joined campus to pursue Journalism and Communication.
In 2009, I finally completed and joined a local radio station where I worked there as a presenter/Reporter for a whole year. I moved to a different local community Radio Station where I worked again for a year before leaving to join a monthly Education Magazine where I worked as a writer.
In January 2013, I left work as a writer to start my small Computer printing,typing, photo and Video Editing as well as photo copying.
within two months as an entrepreneur, I got a job at a Local College teaching Journalism as a part time lecturer.
Since then, my business continue to flourish day after the other. I now want to replace an editing Computer and employ one person from college as an intern so that i can improve efficiency of the business.

My Business

My business deals with copy typing, printing, photocopying, photo/passport taking /editing and Video editing. I
I realized many people in my neighborhood and in church are in need of video and photo coverage during their events.These events range from weddings, house warming, funerals, passports for students registering in schools/colleges. a part from that, my business is strategically positioned at a D.o/Chief's camp where many people come for services and mostly want photocopies of their documents. so it is easy to tap them.
I chose this kind of business because its part of my career and also because of the overwhelming demand of the above services within this locality. I get considerable profits which I save part of it for my son's future, and also part of it for purchase of accessories, stationary and maintenance, Rent, and other utility bills. I seek 60000 Kenya shillings to buy a modern computer that is compatible with modern editing software to edit clients videos and photos. It will also help me increase the number of interns to 2 where they will get enough resource to learn from. I will appreciate getting a loan to improve my business and empower others also as enshrined in our Kenyan Vision 2030.
