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

This loan will help me to buy spare parts for my car to enable me to move without any challenge. Hoping that this loan will be of great help to me and my family. I have my children and this business is the source of their education and paying their school fees and taking care of the family is beneficial. Our living standard as a family has improved and thank you for helping me understand that you there for us hear in Africa. Thank you and God bless you so much. Much love, William Okola.
