About Me

My name is John okoth.
I'm a fatal orphan with no mother, Father, sister or a brother, I'm just stand alone,
My mum and dad left me while I was only 4 months old, My grandmother was the one who take care of me. Unfortunately she also passed away.
after the death of my grandmother,i went to live with my step mother and that`s where i started my education in 1999 eldoret town
i was again transfered to obambo primary school in 2002 in class 2 in Siaya town.
i finished my class 8 in 2008 with a maks of 415,i join chianda boys high school in 2009,unfortunately i dropped out of school in form 2 since there were no anyone to pay my school fees and that`s how my education ended.
i again went to live with my mother`s sister in 2010 in nairobi town.after 2 months of living, i was chased by her husband since he never like me.in 2011 january,i talked to my friend and he talked to his father to employ me as a home cleaner,yet his father agreed and i got employed there,after 3 months of saving, i left that job and started selling mtumba clothes.and i also join a computer training .
in 2012 after finishing my computer training,i applied a job at a certain supermarket called JOSFLO SUPERMARKET as a cashier and my request was approved.and i got employed at the supermarket.for my good job i was given a rank as a manager hence accountant ,to work on how the suppliers are being paid and giving them order for the goods to be supplied.upto date i`m still working there.
i`m engaged and ready for marriege

life is full of many challenges but we have not to give up on whatever we are doing no matter how it is ,we never know about tomorrow.

When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you till it seems as if you could n't hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that 's just the place and time that the tide 'll turn. Never trust to prayer without using every means in your power, and never use the means without trusting in prayer. Get your evidences of grace by pressing forward to the mark, and not by groping with a lantern after the boundary-lines, -

No one is without troubles, without personal hardships and genuine challenges. That fact may not be obvious because most people don't advertise their woes and heartaches. But nobody, not even the purest heart, escapes life without suffering battle scars


“No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.”


"What would I do without you my lenders in my life." "Just saying thank you will never repay your kindness." "Words cannot express my feelings, nor my thanks for all your help." "For all you do, for who you are, I will be forever grateful you are in my life
God bless you!

My Business

just as i mention on my story that i was selling mtumba clothes ,i came and open a mini shop and employ one of my dearly best friend to run it for me and it goes on very well.
