I hold a Certificate in Association of Computer professional (A.C.P). I run a Computer Office Bureau cum Cyber cafe and a Barber shop all together. my ambition is to climb the ladder of success through Zidisha and become a living example to others. I hope Zidisha will make my dream come true.

My Business

My business is based on Computer Services situated in Kilifi County, Kaloleni Sub-county within the coastal region of Kenya. I had been doing this business for the last five years and am grateful to say that i have seen the hand of God upon me. This business has been a success mainly because of Zidisha who have funding me with their loans. With my experience i have been able to get more and more clients day by day. Most of the clients like coming to my shop because i have good and reasonable prices for my services. My monthly running cost is Kenya shillings 16,000. and my monthly sales collection is Kenya shillings 50,000. this gives me a monthly profit of Kenya shillings 35,000 monthly.

Project Proposal

i just want to restock stationary for my mini-cyber bookshop i have here and continue to build good relationship with other zidisha members. .

    Arnold has made nearly 200 loan repayments and every one of them has been on time. I would very happily loan to him in the future.

    Great job repaying your loan Arnold. I'll hold a bit of money in reserve in case you post a new loan. Jim

    Arnold was very dedicated to paying back the loan and even paid early in several instances. It was a pleasure to help him improve his business so I am supporting him in his second loan.
