About Me

I'm a young Kenyan man, brought up and schooled in Kenya. I went to Muhoroni Success Primary school and later Maseno School. I studied for a Diploma in Nursing at Kenya Medical Training College and graduated in 2004. I got employed by Vihiga county government as a Nursing Officer. I then ventured into part time fumigation and pest control services to boost up my income. I now run a business on fumigation, pest control and latrine management

My Business

I run a fumigation and pest control services business under the name Klin-It Merchants in Kisumu county. I started in 2019 at the height of the coronavirus disease to boost my revenue streams. I've been able to grow the business over time and now employs 5 casual workers. Over time I intend to grow and build a stable entity in the cleaning sector that is a force to recon with, offering quality and affordable fumigation and pest control services and latrine management.

Project Proposal

I'm still growing my fumigation and pest control business and as such still purchasing the necessary equipment to make work easier.
I intend to purchase protective gear using this loan like gloves, apron and goggles to prevent any accidents that may happen in the course of work. This is a very necessary step towards ensuring the safety of my workforce
