About Me

My name is Purity Muthoni Karori. I was born in 1973 at Subukia at Nakuru County. I joined Meongoini Primary School and later joined Meningai High School for my O levels completing in 1990. I later joined Patmat College for a course in dressmaking and design. I worked with Bedi fabrics for 8 years until I decided to start self employment. I started a dressmaking shop in Nakuru where I make all sort of apparels, including school uniforms.

I am married and blessed with 3 children. My business does very well and it is from its proceeds that I was able to purchase a piece of land and put up a house where I live with my immediate family.

My Business

My business is located in Nakuru town in the Rift Valley of Kenya. This is a very busy town with so many inhabitants; this gives a good market for my products. I supply school uniforms to most of the schools and institutions around. Many people prefer my products because they are cheap and of good quality. I usually travel to the city of Nairobi to purchase my raw materials from the manufacturers and direct importers. This makes my products to be cheap while maintaining a high standard. The only challenge my business faces is lack of an electric sewing machine to simplify my production. With the Zidisha platform, I would be able to fulfill my dream of expanding my business.

Loan Proposal

To you my lenders, for this loan I am intending to spend the entire loan of US $450 together with what I will top up to purchase a brand new embroidery machine to boost my clothing production business. This will enable me to take huge orders of labeling school logos on uniforms, branding of caps, T/shirts for occasions and events, etc. Currently, I pass these jobs to other firms in my locale; hence, I am losing huge revenues on the same. Buying the machine will boost my business few folds ahead. I look forward to your timely funding of my bids. Thanks in anticipation. God bless you all.
