My name is Beatrice Wanjiru. I am a native of an Nairobi’s outskirt esidential town called Embakasi. I am a mother of four, three of them being in different schools. I left schooling at O level. The Embakasi region is populous and the number of women supersedes that of men. The youth dominate the area. This I saw in my own view, which emerged to be realistic, as a doorway to a thriving sale of beauty products and clothing materials. It worked. I started a boutique that has been doing well so far. My goodies range from kids’ to adults’ clothes, and salon products wholesale and retail alike.
The profit I get is not worth complaining as the business became embraced by the entire Community of Embakasi. Adhering to The law of demand and supply has been the basic challenge in carrying out this wonderful business of mine. I need to expand it, by installing more stock into it and consequently moving to a more spacious business premise(s) to allow development. And with the look of things , I might have a motorbike as one of the requirements sooner than later. This is a vivid picture of how crucial a Zidisha loan will be , if granted.
I have great joy to say that I have really benefited from the amount I have been receiving from Zidisha micro-finance. I wish to use this loan to purchase another motorcycle for distributing my clothes that I sell from my boutique. With the experience I have gained since bought the first motorcycle, my sales have increased and I have not been able to satisfy my customers since I supply the products door to door with the motorcycle. The demand has been overwhelmingly high and thus the need for an additional motorcycle. This will cost about 90000ksh which is approximately 968US dollars. I hope my application will go through soon. Thank you
