About Me

l am Gertrude Bett who is 30 years old. I am a young entrepreneur who lives in Eldoret, Kenya. I am from a single mother who has three children including me. My father died while we were small children. My mother had to raise us single handed without a source of income. I remember a lot of times we used to go without food. Completing school was even a bigger hurdle. I believe these are the reasons why I work so hard. I started my business from funds my relatives and friends contributed and that is why I appreciate help from others.

My Business

I deal with timber and timber products. I sell sawed timber to the building industry and also to local carpenters. In my timber yard I also make furniture at an order. I have a pick up truck that enables me to deliver products to my clients as an after sale service at a fee of course. My core business is the resale of timber which I purchase from saw millers. The challenge I face is for fuelling a lorry to deliver the timber to my yard. Which after buying the timber I remain with so little funds to cover all my costs. A little extra funds will go a long way in assisting my business.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to purchase fuel for motor vehicle for distribution of products. Most of my clientele lack a means of transportation. I usually provide transport solutions at a fee. therefore, I usually require fuel in the vehicle before I transport their products.
