About Me

My name is Catherine Karanja,born and raised in Thika,I schooled at Mukui Primary School and Ruchu Girls high School.My childhood life was a bit hard in terms of food,clothing,schooling.etc.Many are times we went to school without food the whole day .I thank God because all that is history,i had to make my life much better by running my own business.I am a Forever Business Owner whereby i make my daily bread by retailing products.What i love about this business is that,i can deliver my products world wide.
I have two daughter,my first born told me that when she grows up,she would like to become a teacher and a musician.I love singing gospel music and cooking African dishes.

My Business

I work with Forever Living Company as a Distributor,I sell aloe Vera-based drinks and bee-derived cosmetics, nutritional supplements, and personal care products. Why i chose this business is that,most people around my area suffered a lot in terms of health,even after visiting hospitals for a longer period of time,they did not get much help.I introduced these products to some and i got a positive feedback about their health improvement.I usually retail and the profit i get i use it to buy food in the house and pays bills.I am also a farmer,i have a piece of land back at rural home,where i specialize in planting maize and beans and i do rabbit rearing which gives me good returns.We keep for their meat, manure and fur. These are all products that are beneficial and provides me with a regular source of income.

Loan Proposal

Hallo Zidisha,i take this opportunity to thank you for the helping hand towards my projects,i can testify that since I joined Zidisha,my business has really improved.I visited my farm over the weekend and noticed that my rabbits are not hunching over and limping which is the signs for a sick rabbit,therefore I really need to look for a veterinary for observation. The loan amount that am asking for will enable me to pay for the service which will cost me approximately $200 and feeds $100.Looking forward to your assistance.I have also a big order over the Christmas holidays therefore the expected profit margin will be very high,so I will be in a position to repay the loan and feed my children.God bless
