About Me

am a kenyan lady from western kenya.I started doing small business wayback inorder for me to get some pocket money to buy books and pencils.where i live theres alot of business and also fishing taking place at lake children would like to be doctors when they grow hobby is travelling and visiting new places.

My Business

i get my income through selling chips and other food commodities and fruits.most commodities i get them across the border because they are cheaper so when i come to sell i get profit.this has really helped to boost my income and living standards has improved.the profits u get i use them to pay school fees for my children and buy them clothes i have even purchased furnitures gor my house through the prifits i receivef from the business last month my life has greatly improved and am so happy for that.

Project Proposal

When i get the loan ,i want to add more stock i was buying 3 bales ,but i want to increase on the number of bales because the more the bales the more the interest i can get.I would also like to add different types of clothes so that i dont stick to selling kids clothing, i can also add mens wear, and womens wear.
