About Me

I am a kenyan citizen and mother of two children ( twins), i was born in Busia (Nangina) and went for part of my primary school in Nangina and proceeding to do my high school in Uganda. After graduating from high school i ventured in business assisting my aunt who exports mineral water from kenya to Uganda. After a while i started venturing in farm produce which i am still involved in to date.

My Business

After four years of assisting my Aunt in her export business i have been able to save enough to start my own business , which saw me buy yams from Busia to Mombasa a business that i have been involved in now for two years running.this business has a ready market once the produce gets to their destination (Mombasa) but has one risky part that part of the goods may go stale enroute to Mombasa.

Loan Proposal

Ever since I started taking the loan from Zidisha my stock of yam has increased and it has been easier for me to transact. I there for intend to use the loaned money like this-:Kes 6000 ($ 57) in restocking my supplies,Kes 2000($20) in transport costs and Kes 1000($9) in miscellenous expenditure. Thank you in advance for your support.

    I had serious financial problems that have started easing notwithstanding the Corona pandemic I have therefore decided to clear my long-standing loan as my gratitude to zidisha.

    I have come to learn that Eunice made her last payment in one go but unfortunately for her she entered the wrong pay bill number and is still struggling to get her money reimbursed.

    The loan has made a difference in my life though due to unavoidable circumstances I had to defaut on this loan that has seen my repayment rate drop substantially thus regrettably disqualifying me from applying for a larger amount. Thank you lenders for your support and I hope you will still be there for me.

    My business is arrangement with my customers is that i get paid on delivery of goods but the payment is seldom prompt , i am currently foreseeing a late payment and would hate to drop in repayment percentage thus the reason for rescheduling.
