About Me

am 29 years old turning 30 by the end of this year. Married and blessed with a baby girl 4 years old. i have done diploma in business management bur i have not been able to get a gud job. Currently am employed by Styles Industries formerly known as Darling. i work there as a driver, bur at the same time am starting my own business which am marketing right now. i started a company called Verdant limited. its due to luck of capital thats why it hasnt picked up yet but with time it will pick i believe so.

My Business

Being employed and earning a salary of 14,000/= doesnt really do anything here in Nairobi. With my business i will be able to offer to companies or institutions with services like Cleaning of offices, supply of office stationery, property management & letting agents, supply of perishable goods and cereals, supply of building materials and etc. It all starts with baby steps then after sometimes you find yourself doing very well if you are determined. Am really working so hard to see this grow to something big.

Loan Proposal

Hi all,
I hereby place my aplication for a ksh 22000 to help me grow sugar canes in my 2 acres land in my rural are in western Kenya. Western Kenya is known for its agricultural environment and sugar cane growing has become the major cash crop gown there.
Though it's a long time investment but I trust this can be the best move ever made. It takes just 1year 4 months to have st the crop and that makes you a great profit as I have seen it.
apart from that am still working on my supply business which didn't pick up well but I trust things will be ok soon.
I have decided to invent into this after I noticed that it's an opportunity since my business is still weak in a way, so I needed something which I can rely on and earn something out of it even if it will be after 2 or 3 years.
