About Me

My name is William Okola, born 42 years ago in Suwinga village in Ugunja Division Ugunja District in Siaya County. I went to Suwinga Primary School, then proceed to Eldoret Secondary School. I am marriaed to Eunice Okola and God blessed us with four children, thus two boys and two girls. I had been involved in doing odd jobs, selling second hand clothes and other ready jobs like constructions etc. I came to start my business after working for a friend in his farm for one week and then see the need to start my business of selling second hand clothes for 15 years. I am now working as a taxi driver and driving a van that transport people from one place to another.

My Business

People can call me so that they can hire my van for transportation and looking forward to buy another van one day and expand my business. Getting money to buy a car is not easy but after saving for a period of time as enabled me to buy this van that am using now. I choose this business because it has been my dream since I was a young child. The life has been not that easy but I thank God that zidisha will help me to achieve my goals.

Loan Proposal

It is a great help to lend me money to continue with my business, hoping that it will be growing to enable me help my family. I will be letting you know my progress as I grow my business. My family and those customers that I will be reaching through this business will be great.
