About Me

I am Diana from Nairobi - Kenya, a Mother of one. I am a member of Zidisha since 2014.
Have pursued trainings in the hospitality industry an currently working within the same industry.
I appreciate the support by Zidisha lenders and Team and have utilized the loans to start retail for household items which i do mostly online. Have also used a loan to cater for tuition fees and this was very helpful.

My Business

I retail household items mostly brand new cotton bedsheets & king size towels, health food products. I retail both online and through referral customers.
I have managed to repay all my loans through the sales income and my work income as back up when sales are lower.
This year September 2021 I have legally registered my business Ivad Shopping Store.
Looking into more growth with your support and to establish a physical retail shop.

Project Proposal

I will use the loan amount to buy half bale of cotton bedsheets to sell both online and around my environs.
Will use the profits to repay loan and add some more stock to continue with my retail sales.
