About Me

My name is William, a husband and a father of 4 children. I live in Nairobi - the capital city of Kenya but originally from Makueni which is in the Eastern side of Kenya. Makueni is an arid area and I grew up in this harsh environment. I managed to clear my primary and secondary education in spite of many hurdles and finally settled with my relatives in Nairobi in search of a better live.

My Business

After I relocated to Nairobi, I enrolled in training institute where I learnt dressmaking and general tailoring. Upon graduation and with help of family members, I started my own business where I make clothes for both sexes and also repair work. I have been in this business for 12 years now and I am glad that it has given me and my family a daily bread.

Project Proposal

I come to you once more with an appeal for school fees loan. There are some additional levies such as exam fees buying a few equipment that I am needed to pay the school before they close for X-mas holidays.

I will spend the entire amount to pay the school since the payment is due. Thank you.
