About Me

I am Marither.
I plan to start doing charcoal briquettes.
I need capital to buy the briquetting machine and construct other necessary structures for drying it out considering that where I am it is very cold and raining most of the times.I have made a small structure in our small rented compound but it will not be enough for the operations. Once I get the machine, I am ready to start producing the briquettes and start selling immediately.

I also want to do chicken farming. I currently have almost 10 chicken that we collect eggs for consumption but I would like expand it and get more eggs for sale. Given funding, I can easily get more chicken and build a much better structure for them. As it is , they are on free range.

My Business

Currently I am full time employed accountant.

My briquettes business will be of great help to the environment since it will help preserve trees from charcoal burning.

My chicken business will enable me to have another side income to supplement my salary and help with school fees for my three children.

Project Proposal

This loan is for school fees payment for my two kids in school. This term is very short and the school management is very strict on fee balances.
