About Me

I am a Kenyan male citizen age 29 years. I was born in a family of four children.
I grew up in Bondeni Village.
I went to I mani Primary School where I secured my KCPE certificate in the year 2000.
Ever since I left school, I have never got any promising Job. I have been in and out of casual jobs.
Right now, I have decided to become self employed. I am Photo man.

My Business

Being a Photographer is not an easy task. you have to walk from place to place looking for functions. Those are the places that you will find crowds who are willing to take photographs for remembrance.
As compared to casual employment that I use to have, I am much better now since I am a master of my own. The more I work hard the more the income, and thus I satisfy my day to day demands i.e. Rents, food and also pay fee for my first born child who has just joined school.,

Loan Proposal

Once again, I great you all my lenders and the entire Zidisha members at large. I really appreciate what the Zidisha team are doing to me and fellow business men and women. You have brought me to a financial position that I can not imagine. Once I get this loan, I intent to clear the school fees for my two children who are doing well at school.

    Good morning lenders, the last loan I received I paid for my new premise and did other renovations of the house. I can say that I am now operating under a roof, this has attracted more customers and the much I am making now is incomparable with what I was making before acquiring a premise. I have built trust with many customers since they have now proved my seriousness.

    Good morning lenders, I am well hopping and trusting that you are all okay. The last loan I was given I paid for my house rent and partly paid school fees for my boy. As we approach December holidays, all the business around the city (Nairobi) is expected to go up as the residents tent to spend on leisure and all sorts of entertainment. As a photo man, I am sure I will have to equip my self well to capture the memorable moments of the holiday.

    The previous funds I received helped me a lot. I bought specious memory card and battery for my camera, the reaming balance I used for transport. I went on trips with various schools whereby I had to take photographs.
    Mid this month (August) I went home and the interest I got I used to harvest the maize form the farm. My parents were so happy to see me coming to their aid again during harvest. I told them about Zidisha organization and they were so impressed and encouraged me to work hard.
    When I came back to Nairobi, I was to start a fresh but my clients dint let me down since the business resumed as usual and I am already on the track.

    Good after noon everyone, first I would like to apologize to my Lenders, the Zidisha Organization and lastly but not least, Alex who introduced me to Zidisha Organization. I am sorry for the delayed payment of the funds that I was supposed to clear by 21st August, 2018. I had gone home and somehow, I over spent. When I came back to the city, I struggled to stabilize my financial status, after a call from Alex I managed to pay my weekly installment of Kes 2800 (MHK277H0HO Confirmed. Ksh2,800.00 sent to Zidisha Inc. for account 0710555302 on 20/8/18 at 9:39 PM New M-PESA balance is Ksh82.00. Transaction cost, Ksh34.00.), but I can still see it has not reflected in my account. Kindly review my account, I will make my final payment of 2,488 KES on Monday-27th Aug, 2018 thanks in advance for your understanding

      Dear Godfrey,

      It can take up to 3 business days before your repayment is credited. But the “missing” one from 20 August seems to be credited already.

      Kind regards,
      Team Zidisha

      Ps. This is a place to communicate with your lenders. To get help from a staff member you should create a support ticket using the help menu (
