I am Cecilia Nyatichi Okari from Kisii County, i am the second born in our family of two girls and two boys.I am privileged to have gone to Primary School and later joined the Secondary School and completed to the fourth level.After my secondary school education my parents were unable to take me to the next level of College and that marked the end of my education.I stayed at home for one year with my parents doing the work at our farm.i later moved to Nairobi to join my aunt whom employed me as her house help.During my stay there i opened an account where i was depositing my money which i was being paid.
During my off days on weekend i would go to the city and visit various beauty shops to see how they run their businesses and in the process i befriended one lady whom would become my good friend and show me the way.
after two years i went back to Kisii and opened my jewellery shop as a small business ,which would become a big shop now.I love singing ,making new friends and traveling .
This business of mine i started it with the small savings i was doing while being a househelp at my Aunt place,the business is so good because this kind of business here in this place was not their .The business entails in the sale of jewellery such as earrings ,necklaces ,bungles,chains and many more products that goes with beauty .My business came as a blessing mostly to the locals because of the products and also the closeness of the services.
I have also introduced the sale of the earrings and other goods to the whole sale price mostly to the hawkers.The business has also helped me to educate my younger sister who completed her Secondary school last year,i do also pay my bills,cater for my upkeep and also restock the business from the profit that i make. As a business person i value so much doing some savings even if how small it is .With the Zidisha and good lenders on board i can foresee my business having branches here in our town and also outside the town.Thank in Advance for your kind support.
I take this opportunity to Thank the Entire Zidisha Team and Lenders for your continued support,this loan is going to be channeled to the business by buying more Gold coated Earrings at the cost of 100 USD & Necklaces at a cost of USD 60.This products are fast moving and the increase will add to sales because now their will be more earrings & necklaces at the shop ,sustaining the demand of my customers ,making the impact to my sales.this will improve my business and also my upkeep ,enabling me also to repay the loan back and also looking forward for great impact in the business.Thank You.
