About Me

My name is Alpha Musyoka Kitonga
I am a freelance writer, researcher (freelancer) for the last 10 years and i own a car spare parts shop I have a keen eye on business opportunities.
But mostly,i love freelancing and online opportunities.
I have been able to finance my laptop project here and first digital camera , a fast food cafe,an online store where i sell mobile and smart phones and lastly an online spare-parts business. Thank you to the Lenders who helped me, be blessed.

My Business

For the last 2 years with the help of funding from Zidisha.org i have been running my online spareparts business , and a small store for sales support and an online shop on Jumia Kenya and facebook .We are glad that i was able to find a location on Mombasa road, Maasai road, where offline sales take place.Currently , everything has been set up including a sales support shop and the business is a making sales and business is good.
I have registered a business name, a bank account and my business is legal and trustworthy.
The business deals with sales of fast moving car parts such as car service parts ( spark-plugs, motor oil air and oil filter , tyres , car safety accessories such as reflectors, first aid kits. Car windows tints, headlamp tail lamps and bulbs etc.

This loan will help boost the current stock which went down due to low sales during the COVID19 period and also help the business have running capital.

Project Proposal

I would like to raise funds to help purchase a Suzuki maruti in good working condition for a price of 250,000
the funds raise here will help to account for 51% of the purchase price of the suzuki Maruti and the rest of the funds will be from my savings
The Business will help employ one Driver and myself as the manager. This will be the second Maruti i own after my first one
