About Me

About me
My name is idd salum mohamed, a graduate of Saint Augustine University, I have bachelor degree of arts with education (2018). I live in Nyegezi - Malimbe in Mwanza region. I came from a family of five children, two girls and three boys. My father and mother have already passed away and now I live with my younger brother and the other one is continuing his higher education. Also, I have two sisrers one of them is married and the other one living with my aunt. I started stationery services especially typing when I was in college in second year after I bought my laptop for the academic activities. So, during that time many students gave me their work to help them in typying including my group, that's when I realized that I can do it as my job. In 2018, when I finished school, I opened my stationery near St. Augustine university and started working as a small entrepreneur. Until now, I have 7 years of experience in this industry and I wish to become a big entrepreneur who will supply stationery equipment.

My Business

About my business
My business deals with stationery issues, especially typing, printing, photocopying, scanning and writing academic work. My business is very important and productivity to the community I lived because the area where I live is surrounded by three colleges such as St. Augustine University, an adult education institute and fisheries college. There are also two primary schools which are Nyamalango primary and Sweya primary school and also there is Saint Mary Seminary. Therefore, all of these institutions need stationery services to achieve their academic goals. So, if my business improved, it will be able to help them all and serve that community around these institutions, especially in stationery activities.

Project Proposal

My proposal
I am hoping to buy a printer that will be able to scan, copy and print in colored, so I am requesting a loan of 300,000 shillings to buy the printer and also this loan help me to transport that machine where my stationery located.
