About Me

My name is Norris Wafula, 31 years old, married with one son called Hein who is my greatest inspiration. Am a Bukusu, a sub-tribe in the Luhya community in Western Kenya. Most of my childhood life was spent in the rural setup, only after completing my college with a diploma in Information technology is when i was able to come to Nairobi city in search of greener pastures. currently am perusing a degree in Business of information technology.
Life in the city wasn't that easy as i expected however after much waiting and undertaking several unskilled jobs and mostly employed as a security guard, i meet a friend who was starting up his own company and we joined hands from the initial establishment of a company dealing with swimming pool maintenance . This was my turning point in life and i realized it's not a must to be employed but rather you can become self employed and further more create job opportunities to others. I decided to do something different and i registered a security firm which am currently recruiting,training and supply guards to institutions around my home area. My hobbies are swimming, watching movies and traveling.

My Business

My firm is known as Wasino security Services, currently the firm offers the following services; guarding services, Backup & patrols, Event management, V.I.P escort, Electric fencing and CCTV installation. I came up with this business idea after evaluating the area and found out that most institutions employ guards not attached to any firm and without any training. This business does not only benefit me but it also helps me reach out in developing my community by offering Job opportunities. Am the sole financier of the business with little savings form my current job. Currently i have 16 guards and spend USD 44 per guard for recruitment, training and supply of equipment and hired one former security officer to manage the guards. My clients pay a monthly guarding fee of between USD 55 -77.
Monthly am able to make a profit of around USD 115 which most of it is ploughed back into the business. With a promising growth, i foresee a bright future for my firm.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to purchase a 3-in-1 printer that has the capability to print, photocopy and scan documents. This will come in handy as for now we outsource this services from cyber vendors, making it difficult to protection our confidential documents as a firm we spent a lot in printing and photocopying of documents and if we acquire one, the firm will save some cash.
A new computer set will be used as a server to provide network facilities to the office and act as a backup for the firm’s information.
Will also purchase an internet modem with wireless ability for the network connectivity for the firm.

HP Laserjet 3380 All-In-One Printer @ Usd 300
Desktop Computer (Dell) @ Usd 205
Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router @ Usd 170

Total cost Usd 675

These equipments will come in handy in improving my firm’s efficiency and save time used in document production and save some cash used to outsource printing services and internet services from other vendors at a high cost, in return increasing the profit margin of the firm.
