About Me

I am a graduate with a BSc in computer science, and a Diploma in information technology. I am self driven and have a passion for technology, with a great sense of responsibility. I rarely quit on a problem for, in the software development industry, patience is key. I am social, easy to integrate with others and a good team player, and a go-getter. One of my greatest satisfactions is when we fulfill a client's requirements (result- oriented).

In the course of my life, I have been a youth church leader (Anglican church) in my diocese. I have also been the chairman of a youth group(Grace Legacy Youth Group) through which we have been able to empower the members in venturing into small, gainful businesses/source of income.

My Business

My business deals with information technology and offering solutions to our clients. I have a registered business name (KEROCA INVESTMENTS); we specialize in hardware repairs, software development, training, computer network installation and also CCTV installation.

Due to the fast uptake of technology by small businesses, the IT field has really expanded and keeps growing. We are able to gain a competitive edge due to our services for we try to tailor them much towards the clients' needs rather than the general package, which makes it easier for them to purchase and use.

Loan Proposal

The money raised will be used to purchase the necessary tools to equip my workers to be able to carry out their installation tasks and repairs. The funds will be utilized as follows:
1. purchase of 4 blower machines: USD 137
2. purchase of 5 dust-coats and aprons: USD 45
3. 2 portable ladders: USD 106
4. 2 refurbished (HP) laptops: USD 420
TOTAL: USD 708
These purchases are expected to reduce the operation cost of hiring machines from other businesses and also enable us to deliver our services fast and efficiently. This will in return add on to profitability of the business and give us a competitive advantage.
