My name is winfred nyawira muthoni,I was born in kirinyaga county in central kenya. We have been raised by a single mother I and my brother who is a role model to us.Through struggles of life we still made it and got the best from our mum.I attended Gathuthiini primary school,the Kiaragana Girls high school for secondary education.
Currently am pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce(Insurance) since am a holder of Diploma in Insurance am experiencing some challenges in paying my school fees even though I try hard to raise money by doing insurance underwriting and selling rice.
When pursuing my diploma I still had the fees challenge,therefore I joined Gathuthiini Hope Foundation and volunteered to be doing guidance and counseling to primary school kids.The foundation paid my fees and am very greatful to them.
The job I do in underwriting is not a consistent one so I saved a little from it and also got some funding from my mum and my brother to start the rice business so atleast to make ends meet. Am an outgoing person and during my free time I like giving back to the community so I engage myself in activities like cleaning or even walks.
I sell pishori rice, this rice is in demand since its not like the local rice when cooked it has some fragance and doesn't become lumped(mushy). I chose this kind of business since I can assess the rice easily it is grown in my home area and also at a fair price.The profits I get I reinvest in growing this business and paying my fees.
Now i have ventured into agribusiness too, to boost my income.
I highly appreciate Zidisha team and thank the lenders for always having the will to help out and fund those in need i being one of them.
I am requesting for a loan to buy textbooks(legal aspects, financial accounting, business communication, general insurance,economics) and other stationeries.
