About Me

I am Beatrice Monyoncho born in kisii town and bought up in nairobi where i took my primary and secondary education and completed successfully then joined a medical college and took pharmacy as a course and successfully graduated from the college.I am a very hard working lady and due to this I was able to secure little loans from my relatives and friend to start up a small chemist in embakasi that I operate by myself with the help of a qualified nurse.I am a family lady and married with two hobbies are listening to music,watching football and swimming.

My Business

I basically offer laboratory services and also sell over the counter medicine which include painkillers among other medicines.if a client ?customer comes to my chemist with a verified subscription from the doctor i get to serve them and give them the right medication as per the subscription.I started this business cause I had passion in helping people and treating them.I am an ambassador of good health.IT is also a source of income with this world of today diseases are everywhere and in every season and thus calling for medicine thus proving a ready market.basically i spend about KES 50000 ($556) and make a profit of an average of KES 22000 ($244).I use the profit to pay for my bills and part of it for fees.

Loan Proposal

Stock has been the main pillar to increased profit margins in my business. If my loan is funded, I will use the money to add stock to my current stock. This will improve my family’s living standard and also provide more medicine to my surrounding community, since community members are now sure of availability of common drugs. Thanks and I hope my loan will be funded.
