About Me

I grew up in Munyali village,and attended Siritanyi primary school where i did my O level exams.My parents were farmers and could hardly afford to feed seven of us, four girls and 3 boys. We sold maize from the farm for a living while my mother tilled peoples farms in order to earn an income to be able to clothe us.
Through this hardship we managed to study and i passed my primary school education and went to Chesamisi high school where i struggled to pay my own fees by selling groundnuts to other students. The management was kind enough to understand and would allow me to work in return for some deductions to my schoolfees.
I managed to graduate and still by selling groundnuts i raised enough money to gain entry into college through friends and bursaries contributions.I attended Nairobi university and attained a Diploma in Human Resource management.

My Business

I am a practicing farmer and keep poultry. For 14 years i have bought chicks at 1$ per chick and sold each at 4$ depending on seasons and market prices.I also buy maize,bean and cabbage seedlings which i transplant into my one acre farm and after harvest i sell close to 6 bags of maize and 4 bags of beans each at about 12$.
I use these proceeds to pay fees for my two childrens primary education and my wifes college fees.I also help my parents to educate my younger siblings some of whom are still in high school.

Loan Proposal

Since I enlarged my cyber cafe room, I have some empty spaces that I can fix my computers to so that I can reduce my customers especially those sitting on the queue waiting for others to finish so that they can brows. This will cost $ 3.5 each and once it is installed i will maintain my customers because others normally tires up quickly and run to neighboring shop so as for this will hep me retain my customers. Since the business has picked up i am expecting the increase of 30% and this will have to boost me to the higher level.
