About Me

Hi lenders.
I am Carolyne Musyoki a Kenyan citizen by birth. I am 36 years old. I have been raised up in a big family of 13 children. My parents have been doing small scale farming till now and they were able to educate us to different levels.
I have gone through primary education all through to university level and I have a bachelor's degree in Agricultural economics and resource management and a master's degree in Fisheries resource management.
I have been applying for jobs and have not gotten a chance yet so I have been doing business for sometime now. My first business was selling cosmetics and beauty products and have also reared chicken and fish. Currently I am involved in Supplies business were I have a company which is registered. The supplies business is good for me but I have been facing challenges like lack of good capital and delays in payment. My major goal and dream is to see my company grow big to be an international company which will give job opportunities to young people who are jobless. I would also love to see myself being able to sufficiently provide for my family, my parents and give back to the society.

My Business

I have had several businesses but now I am doing general supplies were I have a company registered and in the special group category of youth. My company is 4 years old and it has been growing slowly due lack of capital. The products which I deal with include:
General office stationary
Fresh vegetables.
Hardware materials
Printing services.
I do not have a place to stock either of the product I supply but I source them from wholesalers when I get the orders. I love doing this business more than any other I have done in the past because I see a bright future through it for myself and others. At the moment I have gotten tenders to supply vegetables and stationary materials and the lack of enough capital has been a major challenge. I am sure that if I get financing I will be able to do more for myself and others who are in need.

Loan Proposal

I intend to use the loan to support my supplies business which at the moment is my only source of income. The loan will be a big boost to me as I will use it wisely to expand my business by looking for more tenders. My goal is to grow my company so that in future I will be able to support others by offering them a job.

    Hi. At the moment I am not able to pay the instalments because my business collapsed,I had to close my shop last year because it was not giving me any income and was not able to pay the rent. Am working on another business idea which I hope that it will succeed for me so that I can continue repaying my loan. I am very sorry for the inconveniences. Kindly be patient with me. Thank you.

    Dear my lenders.
    I thank you all so much for funding my loan, you have done me well and I am so happy and I appreciate your support.
    I will use the loan as capital to boost my vegetable supplies business. The loan will be of big help to me because I have been facing capital challenge since the institution increased the quantity they want me to supply. When I get the loan that problem will be solved.
    I once again thank you so much for the loan and I promise not to disappoint you.

    Hi my lenders. First I wish to thank you for your financial support and for your Patience with me during the loan repayment period. Sometimes my instalments were late and you gave time to repay,thank you. I also wish to inform you that I used my previous loan so well that the business gave me profits which I used to start my new business of General supplies. I am sorry for the inconveniences which I might have caused you during the repayment period especially the delayed instalments. I kindly request for your support once more in building my current business which I trust that I all goes well it will be a more sustainable source of income for me and my family. Considering the level of unemployment in my country and also the fact that I have tried to applying for jobs and I have not been successful, then my decision is now to be self employed. I kindly need your help to raise funds which I will buy a new computer for my business because the one I was using collapsed. I promise to make good use of the money and also I promise to repay my instalments on time.

    Kindly consider my application.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.
