About Me

My name is Mercy Zoe Wanjiru, I'm a Kenyan businesswoman. I run a company called Bush and events Africa. We organize safaris and adventure travel within Kenya and Tanzania. I started my business 5 years ago. I love my business because it's passion driven and i enjoy my work very much. I started my business from my little savings after working in another tour company for 3yrs and I always knew that someday I'll own my own business. To me it's a dream come true although I'm now seeking funds to expand my business. I plan to get a loan and buy camping gear and other outdoor essential like sleeping bags,camping seats,gazebo etc. I use the profits from my business go towards expanding my business further as i grow it step by step with the little i make over time

My Business

I have used my previous loan from Zidisha to buy camping tents,mattresses, solar lamps,camping seats etc and this has really helped my business to grow. I'm very grateful to Zidisha lenders! I use the items i bought to run my trips hence i save on hiring from other sources like i used to, and sometimes when I'm not using the gear, i hire them out as well. The vehicle is being used to transport my camping equipment which i used to transport in a hired vehicle so now I'll be cutting the hiring costs. The vehicle can also be used to transport people which is a plus in my line of business.

Loan Proposal

Greetings Zidisha team,
I recently finished paying off my fist ever loan from zidisha, which i used to purchase some camping tents because i run a safari company and had been hiring tents from people to use for my trips. It's now much better with the few tents i bought and the returns are good. I've therefore decided to get another loan and add more tents because the demand is high since i have greatly advertised my tents and now also have people who need to hire from me for weekend trips(it's common for people to go somewhere camping over the wknd here in Kenya as a group of friends or family). I therefore request that you assist me in growing my business further by funding my tents and camping gear project,which is a long term income earner because the gear will last long and the demand is certainly there. On my profile i've uploaded photos of tents that i already bought and that i'm already hiring out at the moment. I will greatly appreciate your assistance. Thank you
