About Me

My names are Mercy Mugure Kimani. I'm married and have 3 children. I was born in Kiambu district in the Kiambu county which was in the former Central province. This is about 50 miles from Nairobi.

I went for early education near my rural home, which is just a walking distance and this was so good as I did not get tired going to school, unlike my counterparts.

Later I went to a school in Nairobi, Uthiru Girls high school, and after my form 4 exams, I joined a college in Nairobi to do my study in Front Office & Housekeeping.

I got married in the year 2010 and relocated to my current township of Nakuru which is 130 miles south of Nairobi.

My Business

I have been practising horticulture with my 5th loan and am happy to let you know that it was a wise decision.

Farming is not only a passion that I have, but the challenges and the ability to oversee crops from seeds to maturity and finally selling them and earning brings lots of excitement.

The farming I was doing was overhead irrigation which has it's own shortcomings, but on the other hand the profits are big. Within the first 6 months, I had started realizing profits upto 80% more.

This is the reason I want to move to a more intesified Greenhouse farming which is more productive and harvest are bigger hence the projected income will definitely double in the next half year.

Loan Proposal

My customers have been asking me to stock School Uniforms, school shoes and school bags in a section of my shop.

This is mainly due to the reason that the nearest one is a little far.

The loan proposal for my loan is as follows-

1. School Uniforms for boys and girls.............................$100
2. School shoes for boys and girls......................................$80
3. School bags............................................................................$50
4. Other expenses.....................................................................$20

TOTAL- $ 250

With this amount, my business will take the next level and I am sure I will be able to meet my customers expectations and therefore increase my profits and livelihood.

As usual, I pledge to continuously repay my loans on time and completely.

God bless you all.

Mercy.
