My name is Joseph masese machira I was born in 1963 at munanda in bahati nakuru county I joined munanda primary school and later Rongai boys for my O levels . After school I joined comboni polytechnic in Gilgil town for a course in carpentry and joinery to the level of a diploma. I worked with various institutions and lastly Gilgil telecoms industries. In 2006 I decided to start self employment of producing wooden furniture in my workshop at Gilgil town I am married and blessed with 3 children.
My business is located in gilgil town specialized in the production of wooden furniture. I started this business after I realized there was great demand for wooden furniture among the local community. I produce sofa sets, wall units, beds, Filling cabinets, office furniture etc . I normally get orders in my workshop where I am in stock of the row materials to produce the same. My business does well because I supply school desks and other commodities to the leaning institutions in and outside nakuru county. It is from its proceeds that I was able to buy a plot and built my own residential house. The worst challenge my business faces is luck of modern tools to make exotic like furniture which would definitely attract a lot of orders. With zidisha platform I am optimistic that I will be able to fulfill this dream.
Once I get the loan will purchase a surface planning machine worth $500.the machin will increase productivity out put hence increase profit.the machine will enable me also raise quality to our products. The above machine if well used can be attract even other workshop user to use and charge them.this will increase profit further.
