About Me

I am Canam Adenya .daughter to Mr. and Mrs Adenya Joshua just finished my diploma degree in business management and accounts, living in Mwanzo and running a business of second hand cloths together with my sister Maureen. I intend to increase my current stock with the loan, due to the increased demand by my customers.
I start this Business 9 month ago and it has been of great success to me since. Second hand cloth is a trend and a fashion to our community as they are long lasting and unique. Since I started I have never been able to be at par with the demand due to luck of funds as I wanted to expand my business and create jobs to other members of the community.

My Business

My business is all about selling second hand cloths from a small shop I own just within Mwanzo Estate behind Rail-ply. My source of income comes from the profit I make from the business. There is high demand of second hand cloth as they unique and wanted to fill the gap, I want to supply more cloths to my nearby friends and client since they are asking for more and different design and quality. I have a dream to expand and be able to create jobs to members of our community I want to make an impact to many people and also be a pillar to development and be able to make a change by empowering youth to take up initiative by being an example of success from zidisha

Loan Proposal

I have been able to expand my second hand cloths line with the money I get from Zidisha.I have also been able to get more customers since I bring more varieties of cloths all from ladies wear to gents wear.With the loan am requesting from Zidisha I want to get more stocks since we are in the festive season and clothes sell more doing such seasons.more and more customers are liking my cloyhs since a able to get new stock on weeekly basis thasnks to the funds i get from Zidisha.Am applying for another loan being confident that i will be able to pay back just like i have paid back my previous loans on time.The profit I ge from my bussiness will enable me pay back my loan since my business has grown tremendasly.Ithank you lenders in advance as i await to get my loan funded.thanks.
