About Me

My names are Edwin ongeri, i live in Nakuru county . My home town though small it has a high population and also great potential for businesses of all kinds.
I grew up being very enthusiastic about Technology and therefore chose a career in IT. it has been a journey to satisfy my undying curiosity to know more and more about computers and technology as whole. I am a graduate with a Diploma certificate in Information Communication Technology
I am an IT Technician who loves what i do, i run a computer maintenance and repair shop. before i could get here where i am, I used to work under a friend for almost four year who taught me so much about the computer business .
I am enjoying the experience that my business brings. I will forever be grateful to the Almighty God for without his guidance i wouldn't be where i am today! God Bless!!

My Business

My business entails sales of computer accessories and at the same time maintenance and computer repairs (Computer Garage). The accessories include computer desktops and laptop keyboards, laptop screens, laptop batteries and chargers, desktops and laptop hard drives, TFT monitors, power cables,VGA cables and all other computer related products. being a technician i also do servicing and repair of both desktops and laptops. The products that i have actually entails to daily basic of the computers to run efficiently, hence their demand is ready.
I chose this kind of business because this is what i used to dream of and also i had so much passion for it, and also I during my start of the business i had a good mentor to advice me through the ups and downs of the business , hence i found myself catching up with others in the computer business easily.
most of my revenues comes from the profit i make from the sales and the services that i provide. I use the profit that i make to cater for me and my young family basic need, paying of rent for both home and the place of work, and when am left with a little I would boost my wife's chicken rearing business .

    I would like to appreciate the existence of zidisha as it has helped me improve on my life and on my business. my previous loan i used it to buy a little stock in my small shop. This time round i intend to expand my business room as it is turning out to be a little bit small.

    Hello zidisha! Hopping people are doing great, am also doing well from this part of the continent. Concerning my on time repayment , am ashamed of the percentage that it is right now!

    I made this change due to the income i get and considering that my plans with the loan didn't go as i had planned, i only received ksh 4100 out of ksh 17600 that was disbursed. this made it difficult for me to continue with my plans. hope you will understand my situation.
