About Me

Hi Lenders,
Thank you for always supporting my journey. I’m a Zidisha beneficiary seeking an 8th loan. With this money I seek to support my recently started Social Media Management consultancy. Due to the pandemic, many people especially customers have resorted to going online and making their purchases there. The challenge is that most of the entrepreneurs are yet to move their businesses online and this is due to the gap in technological skills. I have done the market research and this is a business that has the possibility to grow and even offer people jobs in the long run.

My Business

This business is going to offer social media management to entrepreneurs who are not technologically savvy. So far all the proceeds from this have gone towards setting up the business. I have so far registered the business, bought a laptop and a modem.
With the loan I will take 2 courses on how to develop systems when running an online business. If it was more, I would purchase a professional camera. With the income I would be able to expand from operating virtually only.

Loan Proposal

The tree nursery that I have started is in my backyard in Masii. The loan I seek is to buy more shade-nets as well as planting bags for my nursery. After the growth of my tree seedlings, I will sell them to organizations, institutions and individuals at a small fee at least to increase access by all and also get some profit out of this venture.
My business is now on the expansion stage and I have been able to secure some tenders to supply the seedlings. Your help will help me achieve my dream.
