My name is Ernesta njeri mwangi I was born on 6th June 1977 at nakuru in nakuru county. I joined mwiruti primary school and later I joined st ann. Secondary school for my o levels. After school I joined Melvins College for a course in management. Afterwards I worked for various employers until I decided to start self employment. This came as an idea when I realized in had to take care of my parents who were know getting aged and could not go on with their farming activities I also needed money to educate my son since I am as single mother . I settled on a business of selling fresh fruits and fruit nectar juices. Look forward to be a zidisha member.
My business is located in gilgil town. Outside biashara plaza I am specialized in selling fresh fruits. I started the business after I realized there is great demand for fresh fruits and juices gilgil town is a very busy town with a great population making it a hub of good business in almost all fields. My customers prefer my products rather than those of my competitors because they are fresh and tastier I usually correct my fruits from fruit farms which are as far as muranga county. My business does well and I am able to provide for my aged parents and educate my son. It is also from its proceeds that I was able to contribute together with my other family members to buy a piece of land at the outskirts of gilgil town and built a semi permanent house where I live with my parents. I also supply my juices to the local hotels. Some of the challenges my business faces is luck of modern blending machine to separate fresh juice from pulp. With zidisha platform I will be able to overcome this challenge once and for all.
Thanks to you all my lenders, my just concluded loan was very helpful to my business which has continued to record a tremendous growth in profit margin. I was able to open my second juice and soft drinks outlet within my town which is equally doing well. For this loan, I am planning to refurbish the new outlet and acquire a bland new machine for squeezing sugar cane juice which has become more popular among my customers at a cost of US$ 300. Many of them prefer to take it instead of carbonated non nutrients drinks like soda and likes that is the reason why I want to capitalize on this demand to reap maximum benefits to repay my loan on time. The remaining US$ 90, will go towards buying piles of fresh sugar cane from farmers . I urge you to support me in realizing this dream by contributing towards funding my bids n the shortest time possible. God bless.
