About Me

l am Gertrude Bett who is 30 years old. I am a young entrepreneur who lives in Eldoret, Kenya. I am from a single mother who has three children including me. My father died while we were small children. My mother had to raise us single handed without a source of income. I remember a lot of times we used to go without food. Completing school was even a bigger hurdle. I believe these are the reasons why I work so hard. I started my business from funds my relatives and friends contributed and that is why I appreciate help from others.

My Business

I deal with timber and timber products. I sell sawed timber to the building industry and also to local carpenters. In my timber yard I also make furniture at an order. I have a pick up truck that enables me to deliver products to my clients as an after sale service at a fee of course. My core business is the resale of timber which I purchase from saw millers. The challenge I face is for fuelling a lorry to deliver the timber to my yard. Which after buying the timber I remain with so little funds to cover all my costs. A little extra funds will go a long way in assisting my business.

Loan Proposal

I normally hire pick up vehicle to transport timber from where I purchase it to my shop. this amount will ease my burden of paying for transport and then repaying it later in small amounts. this will really shoulder my burden because at times my customers may delay in repaying their debts and it leaves me with very little money and makes me want to borrow to cover the short funds.
