My name is Monica Nyambura. I am the first born in a family of 3.My family lives in Ngong ,matasia but I stay in Nairobi. I work at Chemville pharmaceuticals as a clinical officer. I studied Clinical medicine at Kenya Medical Training College Nairobi. My passion is to treat and manage patient competently. I work at the chemist by dispensing drugs and also do consultations since it’s also my area of expertise. I do polio and measles campaigns through the ministry of health, within the community during my free time.
My source of income comes from working at the chemist. I want to expand the chemist so that I can have a consultation room so as to start consultation services for the residents of Kayole. Currently I do most consultation over the counter and dispense and manage over the counter. I also want to offer family planning services and that requires the patients' privacy. I also want to start I.V Medications that can only be done in a private room. To achieve all the above I need a bed for examinations of the patients, a B.P machine, a table and a desk and I will be good to go. The area has low earning families and will really benefit from the affordable consultation services as many other big private hospitals are much more expensive. The patients will also benefit through health education about importance of family planning, immunization, weaning which cannot be achieved through consultation over the counter. The above is expected to cost about $250 and my monthly revenue is $300 so I won’t have a problem paying the loan in installments of one week.
I need financial assistance to get new stock for my premises in terms of drugs and to expand the facility so that i can be able to offer quality services to the community as a whole.On the expansion project I will be able to offer family planning services,provide first aid and manage emergency cases,provide laboratory services in terms of correct diagnosis and last but not least provide Immunization services.Your assistance will be highly appreciated and will not only be a great boost for me but to the community as a whole.
