About Me

Hi Lenders,

Josiah here, born and bred in a small Town in the North of Kenya. I'm the last born in a family of five. I come from a humble background and that inspired me to strive and achieve bigger and better things in life. Being a serial entrepreneur, I started off my first business at the age of 14, it was a farm produce delivery business that was facilitated using my Dad's bicycle. Though the business was quite profitable it affected my studies and had to quit and focus on my studies.

After high school, I developed an interest in online work and used to do freelance data entry and writing work for a friend who had a freelance account with Upwork. After trying different freelance jobs I found my sweet spot with writing. Over the past 4-years I've been exclusively offering my services in Content Mills platforms such as iWriter and more recently on Fiverr and Upwork.

My Business

My freelance work has been producing sufficient income for myself and my family BUT my objective has always been creating employment for my peers. MY GOAL is to establish an INDEPENDENT CONTENT CREATION AGENCY and offer employment opportunities for my fellow peers.

My PURPOSE for the loan is to help set up the necessary system I'll need to make my dream a reality; such as website, creating a training module and registering the business. This financing will go a long way in helping me realize a lifelong dream of empowering fellow youth to embrace self-employment through freelance work.

Project Proposal

I'm interested in BUYING a new laptop that will help me do my work as a freelance writer.

My current laptop is OLD and prone to breakages from time to time.
