About Me

I am Judy Karambu. I am 29 years old and married with two lovely daughters. I live in Chogoria, located in the eastern part of Kenya. I am a graduate with a degree in nursing. I am currently working as a tutor at nursing college with very little income that cannot sustain my family fully. I intend to do my master's, hence the reason for my enterprenuship. My business generates income to support my family and savings for my master's education.

I am motivated by the fact that I have to make my life and those of my children better. I juggle my time as a tutor and a businesswoman. I have just enrolled for my master's of science in nursing education and I am hoping I will manage to push through, since I believe in investing in education. I look forward to receiving your support, as you have always done in the past.

My Business

I have been selling handbags since May of last year. I started the business to supplement my meagre salary as a tutor. The initial capital invested in the business was $232 and I buy the bags from Nairobi's Gikomba and Kariokor markets. At first most of my customers were colleagues and neighbours; however, my clientele has increased because of referrals.

My intentions are to expand my business to include secondhand clothes and shoes. I want to make my business grow to a big boutique where my customers can find everything under one roof.

My business has now picked up. I have added an M-Pesa [mobile money transfer] agent, and I am now selling clothes and shoes and I still want to expand and open another subbranch in a nearby market in order to raise more income to help me in my master's which I have just started. Thanks in advance.

Loan Proposal

I wish to apply for another loan of [$479] to enable me pay my first trimester 2016 school fees and add some stock to my business.

I am undertaking a Master of Science program in Nursing Education, now in my second year, at Kenya Methodist University. I look forward to full funding of my loan to enable me pay the fees as required and also add stock to my business. Once again, I am grateful to Zidisha for the continued support. Be blessed.
