My name is Arnold Katana. I live at Kaloleni Giriama. I father of two children, a girl and a boys i love my wife and we a both devoted Christians. My Education background is collage level. I hold a Certificate in Association of Computer professional (A.C.P). I run a Computer Office Bureau cum Cyber cafe and a Barber shop all together. my ambition is to climb the ladder of success through Zidisha and become a living example to others. I hope Zidisha will make my dream come true.

My Business

My business is based on Computer Services situated in Kilifi County, Kaloleni Sub-county within the coastal region of Kenya. I had been doing this business for the last five years and am grateful to say that i have seen the hand of God upon me. This business has been a success mainly because of Zidisha who have funding me with their loans. With my experience i have been able to get more and more clients day by day. Most of the clients like coming to my shop because i have good and reasonable prices for my services. My monthly running cost is Kenya shillings 16,000. and my monthly sales collection is Kenya shillings 50,000. this gives me a monthly profit of Kenya shillings 35,000 monthly.

Loan Proposal

    This is the last time that I will get to choose who to support, since Zidisha has changed to ‘pay it forward’ as the only model they use. God bless you in your business.
