my name is mary wanyama. my childhood was such a nice once having hailed from kitale town then moved with my parents to nairobi the capital of Kenya. i studied the normal Kenyan curricular then proceeded to taking secretarial courses and short hand from hyrax college in Nakuru.this is what i even do currently and am proud of it.
i do not fear challenges and i overcome hardships by focusing on the overall goal.I am a spiritual person and most of the time when overwhelmed so my i get solace in the word of God.I always pass major hurdles in life through planing and i don't fear to take risks especially calculated risks.
i started my business in 2008 after college. i was employed as a secretary for one year and though that i learned on how to run my business .i live in a cosmopolitan town that is Nakuru.this has made me to appreciate the myriad of cultures that are around me. i would like my children to be what the could be but better in terms of education and perspective in life.
In my free time i usually swim and watch movies and when i get time i visit the children in the children homes and teach them. I like children because this is a stage that they can be molded to what they want to be in life.
i provide secretarial services in my shop. i do typesetting ,photocopying and provide cyber cafe services in my shop. there are many schools and colleges around that benefit from the services that i provide.this make my place busy and hence more profitable. i meet their needs and they come for the services offered.
I chose this business because i trained in it and through the experience i got while working as a secretary has made me comfortable in this business. coupled with the customers that comes in droves i am in a good business venture. I usually make between $120 to $150 a month the revenues that i use to pay my bills and take my child to school and also expand my business.
