About Me

i am a 53 year old bachelor of arts graduate from the university of Nairobi where I graduated in 1994.i worked in two organizations since I left college and the last one was 5 years in television advertising. I am separated with two adult college going children. I have been self employed since 2001 and have done several business ventures in several African countries. I moved to gimu area after the athi river underpass last year in November.

My Business

I am currently selling car spare parts for BMW and Mercedes Benz cars, I buy ,fix and sell used cars .due to financial constraints and challenges brought about by covid19 and Kenya's economic downturns I operate from home but have rented space elsewhere and also work form my associates' garages in landimawe and Langata. the cars i sell are also displayed at various car sale yards and at the Sunday car bazaar at jamhuri. most Kenyans cannot afford new cars and most buy second hand cars' used the profits from my business for personal upkeep and also cater for upkeep and college fees for my children,

Project Proposal

i have a friend/client who is looking to set up an internet cafe in nandi hills where we wereborn and bred.a brand new upss costs more than 20k a piece but my friend/client oly has 20k for two.i have a friend who buys out of range ups from corporates-they are still servisable and its only the charging systems and mostly batteries that need replament.
i will source the best batteries that can run a basic desktop work station for 4 hours since power fluctuations are common in kenya.
