About Me

I am a Kenyan citizen aged 24 years and a businessman. I am a hardworking person with very good entrepreneurial skills. I hold a diploma in business management and has been in business for a period of two years. I am married and live with my wife and son in an estate located about 4 kilometers from Nakuru town, in Nakuru County of Kenya. I have very good interactive and communication skills which enabled me to interract well with my clients and also attract and retain new customers to my business.

My Business

My business is located in Nakuru town within the CBD and majorly deals with computer services. The business operates under the name of Markos Computer services. I have operated this business for about two years now and I have experienced massive growth and expansion over the years since its inception. The business is located in a busy street within the town and this has enabled it to drawn the attention of many clients who seek the services and products offered by the business. The main products that the business deals in include sale of printing and photocopying papers, binding covers and spirals and other stationery. The services include printing, typing, photocopying, scanning, lamination, binding and internet services.

Loan Proposal

The loan will really help me to improve my business by purchasing a commercial printer which will be very effective in offering services within my business premises. The demand for printing services is very high in my business area due to the establishment of an institution in the area. I have been able to capture many clients and therefore I will need a good commercial printer which will be purchased by the money advanced to me by zidisha.
