About Me

I started school a young boy and by 2007 completed my KCPE with a B+ , However due to financial issues I wasn't able to join Secondary school immediately. After two years I joined and completed my KCSE in 2013, I lost my mum who was by then supporting my secondary education from her small business. I struggled so much and joined Kenyatta University where I was being partly supported by bursaries and by my own from the part time self employed job I did. However, since I could no longer benefit from the bursaries, I shifted to full time business to raise fund for my school.

My Business

I trained and got knowledge on how to handle cameras from Abedys media studios. Currently I do video shooting and editing for events and occasions. However since I need raw materials for the same, I need more money to buy such materials and for facilitation and far much to expand my scope.

Project Proposal

I started a tuckshop at a busy place within my town, I am looking forward for kind financies to help support me to invest in fast shop products for my tuckshop. Having understood the niche in my environment, I am planning to invest in both welding and furniture accessories that are the major products that the customers around me consume.
Kindly help me get the finance so that I continue running this business. I promise to keep my payment schedule as I habe always done and to also help contribute back to other Zidisha family when able to. Looking forward to your kind contributions, regards.
