As a child I lived in Naivasha, Kenya , awesome place. I was an adventurous kid and would take long walks to the hilly areas of Naivasha to get wild fruits. In college I studied accounting and in University I did a business degree with IT.
The last semester of my University was pretty hard, my parents were broke and I didn't have a source of income, that's when I began doing online jobs and got money to clear the school fee and have been freelancing online ever since.
Kenya is a beautiful country, with beautiful people, although sometimes people seem not to appreciate this. But as a people we are very hospitable.
I would like my children to be happy when they grow up; whatever path they choose as long as it's legal I'll support them be it music, engineering or whatever. I would also like them to add value to the world :).
In my past time I enjoy listening to music, my taste is diverse so I enjoy most genres of music; sometimes I read lyrics at genius.com .
That's me in a nutshell :).
I'm a freelancing front-end developer, so my job is to make sure that web users have a pleasant experience when using a website or a web application.
My services are important since the internet is used daily by almost everybody; I love the web too.
I chose this line of business since I am good at it and for the love I have for the internet.
My typical costs are internet charges=-£5,
, a good Performance PC=£120,
quality screen and software which can be around 120 dollars per month excluding the laptop and screen; revenues vary but generally amount is 300 dollars per month.
Currently i have 70 dollars and the loan from zidisha will boost my business in terms of tools acquisition.
The profits I invest back to improve the business and acquiring more skill; the rest I pay off rent and travelling expenses and other living expenses, sometimes I am lucky and get to save some :) .
Hi everyone, I would like to start selling shoes, I have been saving up and I know it will be a good business. I want to specialize in canvas shoes. A great friend of mine is in China and he has said he could get me a pair for $2, which I could sell here locally for $5 to $10, thus I can make a profit of an average of $5.
This will provide people with cheaply affordable footwear and also improve my standard of living.
I am seeing myself breaking even in about 4 months and the good thing is that I will not have liquidity issues since many people here like canvas shoes for their affordability, hence clearing this loan will not be a problem.
