About Me

I was raised up in a hardworking family with my mum taking me through primary school all the way to university. Growing up wasn't easy as most of the basic needs were not available. Even though the situations were unforgiving, I took them as challenges to grow and achieve my goals in the best way.

It was the channel towards starting my entrepreneurship journey. I have made bricks which improved housing for my village people. I also engaged in farming where I sold tones of vegetables to consumers which earned me some money.

My people live as families and share most of the basic things like food and that is what keeps everybody moving.

I like watching business videos and training online courses on entrepreneurship. This is what takes most of my time. Also, I watch football as it is one of my top hobbies.

My Business

I have been making bricks and used the profits to buy a laptop one year ago. I started reviewing online affiliate sites to find out how to make money working as an affiliate for commercial sites.

I have written tons of product reviews and buying guides for other affiliate marketers and I realized people find the information essential when making a buying decision.

I am now developing my affiliate site and ready to review products on sites like Amazon and Ebay and sell them to earn commissions. But before that, I need an affiliate marketing course that will boost my chances of getting hundreds of buyers on my site.

I chose this kind of business because it is easy to do anywhere as long as there is an internet connection. I am also a good writer and I find it easy to create words that allow buyers to buy products.

The costs involved are designing a commercial website and hosting. My current revenue comes from the buying guides I write for my clients on a weekly basis.

The profits are used in payment for internet services and reinvesting in growing my business and sustain my family.

Loan Proposal

Thanks for giving m,e the first loan that assisted me to kick off the brick business. with the current loan, I plan to buy a POLYTHENE CANVAS for sheltering the bricks. it costs $90. I also need 10 special posts for holding the canvas and these go for $1 each locally. The CANVAS will aid in the sheltering of the bricks from strong winds and rain. previously, I got a loss through poor sheltering and as you can see from the structure on my profile picture, it's made of grass thatch. with this assistance, my profit margin will be 100%.
