About Me

I completed my primary school level in the year 1993, and in the year 1994 I joined high school but due to lack of school fees I dropped out. March 1994 I traveled to Mombasa, I got a job in a cybercafé as cleaner. Here's where I worked and trained in computers. Due to my good work and experience, one of my client gave me a used photocopier machine and one computer which I started a business: a small bureau.

My Business

First, I operated in a small bureau, in my bureau I did photocopy and typesetting but the competition was high due to many and well equipped bureaus around. The profit that I get from the shop wasvery low, cannot cartered for my life expenses. That's why I was seeking a loan to upgrade my bureau with more computers and stationery.

Recently I switched to another business: Sugarcane Juice. I do crush 50pcs of sugarcane in one day, the business is going very well.

One pc of sugarcane is sold at kshs. 35 at our nearby market (Kongowea).
50pcs = Kshs. 1,750/= and when i sell the juice I get Kshs. 5,000/=.

I employed a small boy whom I pay Kshs. 300/= per day.
It is a good business, my profit can be Kshs 2950!

Loan Proposal

Dear Lenders,

Am requesting for a loan to buy another Sugarcane crusher machine, The machines costs Kshs. 50,000/= that is equivalent to USD 497 for the current rate, the machine is made in Thailand / China and it is good. I got another place though it is open place same like the other place i operate this business, at old place i do crush 70pcs a day because the business is doing good in this hot climate, and i hope a new place i can crush like 40 to 50pcs a day, that can give me good profit. I hope after opening this small business can help me take care and educate my kids and also 3 orphan of my Late brother who died at year 2016. The kids are in high school and am the one pays for their school fees. So i hope extending this business can make me manage to educate those children.

Dear Lenders,
I switched to another business of Sugarcane Juice, where by the business is doing very well i do crush 50pcs of sugarcane in one day. One pc of sugarcane sold at kshs. 35/= at our near buy market (Kongowea). 50pcs = Kshs. 1,750/= and when i sell the juice i get Kshs. 5,000/=. I employed a small boy whom i pay Kshs. 300/= per day. It is a good business whereby after my sells which is Total Sells Kshs 5,000 minus Kshs. 1,750 for sugarcanes and minus Kshs. 300 for the boy i remain with Kshs 2950/= Profit.

Dear Lenders,
I thank God and your support for making me be a businessman, This sugarcane Juice business is doing very well, though we operate in a open place using big umbrella to cover us for direct sunlight, But the business is paying thats why i want to add another Sugarcane Crusher Machine to extend my business after getting another good place. The machine costs Kshs. 50,000/= which is equivalent to USD 497. The place we buy sugarcane (Kongowea Market ) they reduced price of sugarcane from Kshs. 35/= to Kshs. 30/= because now i take more than 100pcs a day and i can crush 70pcs a day, thats gives me a good profit of Kshs. 7,000/=. i also added daily payment of my boy from Kshs 300/= to Kshs. 350/= plus lunch of Kshs. 50/= that totaling to Kshs. 400/= per day.

    First i beg for apology for not repaying the loan i took .. It is due to loss occurred after my working place was raided and they took every thing. My computers, Copier Machine, and my sugarcane machine.. But i promise to repay the amount though it will take long before i complete.

    Dear Lenders, Thanks very much for the loan u gave me, i really appreciate and my business is doing very good, but the challenge is the machine in the picture cost Ksh. 120,000/= that is equal to USD 1,185. So i decided to pay it in 3 installments. I gave the owner Kshs. 50,000/= the remaining cash i will pay Kshs. 35,000/= after 2 months and the last balance after 2 month . I decided to do so because i will be paying my loan and the machine at the same time. But i Jesus name i will manage and my business will be good. Thank you and God bless.

    Hi Lucky, you mentioned you employed a small boy... How old is he please? Does he need help with funding his schooling? Is there a reason you're not employing someone older instead? All the best, Emma.

One pc of sugarcane sold at kshs. 35/= at our near buy market (Kongowea). 50pcs = Kshs. 1,750/= and when i sell the juice i get Kshs. 5,000/=. I employed a small boy whom i pay Kshs. 300/= per day. It is a good business whereby after my sells which is Total Sells Kshs 5,000 minus Kshs. 1,750 for sugarcanes and minus Kshs. 300 for the boy i remain with Kshs 2950/= Profit. At the moment i want to buy another machine electric driven machine so that i can make my work easier and make more profit. The machine is being sold at Kshs. 65,000/= so after getting this loan i will go direct to the shop and get the machine, because the manual machine broke down is now Two weeks no work.

My God bless you for this continued support.
