About Me

My name is Christopher Kuria. I am a father of three children, born and raised in Gatanga, Muranga County. I lived in Makongeni phase 5 plot 94. I am a hard working person. I finished my secondary school in the year 2000. I didn't join college due to financial problems and these because my parents were jobless. I started to help my parents on farm work and in that time life was very hard because of the little money I got, some I gave to my parents to assist in paying school fees for my little siblings. I work hard to see my children will not suffer like I did and that I can educate them without problems. I like to pass time visiting orphans just to encourage them about life.

My Business

After finishing my high school, I started farming where plucking tea was the only option. Tea plucking is a bit profitable in my region because I could earn KSh 300 per day. With my little savings, I managed to pay for a barber course which I attended in the afternoon after finishing morning chores. After completing that course, I worked in a different shop to get experience and from there I relocated to Thika and started my own shop. I now have many customers due to affordable prices and good services that I offer.

Loan Proposal

I plan to purchase a shaving machine and my proposal is as follow.
(i) WAHL super taper no.8167- cost..USD 80.
and the rest will cater for transport and some after shave spirit.once i purchase that machine my profit margin will increase by 30% and these because i can hire someboby else to help me at my work place.

Update
Having started my barber shop, I have managed to establish my barber shop. In the last year I have a client base of a hundred customers a week. Since then my profit margin has grown to 8000 a week.
Due to the success, I wish to to start a small barber shop in the outskirts of thika in Makongeni township

    Am greatful to all the lenders for your contribution.
    I will use the money to open a new branch of my barber shop. This will help to increase my weekly earnings and employ more young people.
