About Me

My name is Alpha Musyoka Kitonga
I am a freelance writer, researcher (freelancer) for the last 10 years and i own a car spare parts shop I have a keen eye on business opportunities.
But mostly,i love freelancing and online opportunities.
I have been able to finance my laptop project here and first digital camera , a fast food cafe,an online store where i sell mobile and smart phones and lastly an online spare-parts business. Thank you to the Lenders who helped me, be blessed.

My Business

For the last 2 years with the help of funding from Zidisha.org i have been running my online spareparts business , and a small store for sales support and an online shop on Jumia Kenya and facebook .We are glad that i was able to find a location on Mombasa road, Maasai road, where offline sales take place.Currently , everything has been set up including a sales support shop and the business is a making sales and business is good.
I have registered a business name, a bank account and my business is legal and trustworthy.
The business deals with sales of fast moving car parts such as car service parts ( spark-plugs, motor oil air and oil filter , tyres , car safety accessories such as reflectors, first aid kits. Car windows tints, headlamp tail lamps and bulbs etc.

This loan will help boost the current stock which went down due to low sales during the COVID19 period and also help the business have running capital.

Loan Proposal

Second Freelance camera
Background
I have been a freelancer for the last 5 years, and Zidisha has been very helpful to me.
They have financed two of my projects most notable one is the freelance camera project.
I bought a freelance camera, I have been using it to take photos for events and get paid for it. I have not been able to rent it out because of trust issues, and with the camera I was able to repay my loan fully and with 100% repayment rate
So for my second project I would like to buy a more powerful camera to enable me to be able to cover events better and for me to be able to hire another photographer to help .
The new camera ,a Canon 700d will enable me to capture videos better and photos too.

The camera will cost ksh 54,000 locally. The Ksh 38,000 I will get from this loan will partially finance buying the camera, and I will add the remaining amount ksh 16,000 from my saving.

I will use the camera to cover events, take videos for events and for YouTube , use the camera to build my online photography portfolio. Having some experience in this market now, I will be able to repay my loan fully and on time like I paid the other loan.

Thank you for helping finance my last project, and am sure this project will be a success like my previous project.
Best Regards
Alpha Kitonga
