About Me

My name Moses and am so crazy about the outdoors, camping and adventure. I was born in Kisumu but lived most of my life in Nairobi. I schooled at Highway secondary school. Then pursued a diploma in Electrical Engineering at the Kenya polytechnic.
During my primary and high school years i had this great desire to go for camping but my parents could not afford to pay for any of these trips whether by school or church. The desire for camping was so great that i looked for every opportunity to go for a free camp through joining the scouts and st. Johns ambulance clubs in high school.After college i started volunteering to help at kids camps at the scripture union of Kenya and later trained as a team building facilitator through Young Life USA. This equipped me with the necessary knowledge to be able to plan and facilitate group camps to finer details.
With this knowledge at hand i venture out to start my own events management company. I facilitate Team building as well as organize and facilitate low budget affordable group camps for kids and youths from different institutions.

Kenyans are becoming more and more interested in spend their holidays on a camping trip and hence a high demand for camping Equipment. I believe that I am strategically placed to meet this emerging need.
I am married with two kids.
To sum it up, my hobby actually ended up becoming my carrier.

My Business

I am an events manager, i facilitate Team building for corporates and run group camps for various institutions. I also hire out camping equipment such as Tents, sleeping bags, cutlery and camping activities equipment .
Kenya is a fast growing economy .This mean more investors, companies and job opportunities. As this happens , it open more opportunities for companies to include team building as part of their day to day running. For this , they need competent team building facilitators which i 100% believe i am.
I chose to venture in this business since it first of all give me satisfaction, secondly i get to meet peoples need and help them come up with applicable solutions and lastly it brings food to my table.
A team-building session will give me an income of between $100 to $ 1500 per day depending on the size of the group that i am facilitating.While for the camping tents, i charge $ 2 per person per day .
At the moment my business is still picking up and i cant afford to have full time employees.I normally hire casual laborer who i pay from the profits. I also use the profit to support my family and keep my kids in school.
A part from this a large amount of my profits go to towards Education and provision of basic needs for orphans at Green Village Hope Children’s Home ,a children’s orphanage that helped found and direct. It is based in western Kenya. Feel free to visit our website www.greenvillagehope.org or search us on Facebook. This is home to 24 orphans and vulnerable Children. Right now we are constructing a boys dormitory and community early childhood education school.
My ultimate goals is investing in a property for my own campsite.

Loan Proposal

With this loan i hope to purchase more camping tents for resell and hiring out.
With this loan, i will be able to expand my business, feed my family and also pay my casual worker well.
One tents cost $6 to rent out for a night , if i manage to get to 200 tents i will be able to raise $30 to $1200 per night depending on the number of tents requested.
This will increase my profit and even make me self reliable.
