About Me

Am a single mum raising know a 6 yrs old son zakir. I went through a lot of hardship to get where i am through a rough divorce and have a cater for my sons needs and his education.He just joined grade one which took a lot of my effort to raise the fee for him to join a good school.i started my business with a small capital but by the grace of God am in a better place know though with a lot of responsibility on my son hasn't figured out yet what he wants to be but with the new curriculum hopefully he will get there.i love watching inspirational movies and reading as much of my time is spent at the shop from morning to late at night,and have to still cater for my am always occupied with going to the market the shop and my son as i cant afford an extra hand yet.

My Business

I Have a second hand cloths shop in Nairobi Roysambu area.i deal in ladies wear and in ladies sector is really good because they are frequent clients who shop mostly all the time and compete with the daily trend wear all over the world.I have interest in fashion and i saw that the schools around the area and universities gave me more clients to buy from me.a month i can generate up to 40000 ksh. But it all depends sometimes as of last year business was really down because of the election so we praying that this year things will be okay.i used my profit in putting my son to school as he was transferring and going to class one.and am planning to relocate my shop to a bigger shop just two minutes from the old one and add more stock and expand in bringing in men's clothes and children's clothes.

Loan Proposal

Planning to add a bit of stock and more so pay my sons fee.the year didnt start great with the am trying to catch up with the economy which has been so difficult.will try and look for another strategy of earning more.
