About Me

I was born and raised in Ndeiya region, Limuru constituency in Kiambu county, Kenya. I then moved to Nairobi, capital city, in 2008 in pursuit of higher education. Despite the challenges such as lack of fees and other basic needs, I was able to study hard and graduated and got a job in a law-firm where I trained as a legal intern. I started a car wash business located in Umoja area after saving from my law occupation and also selling books I had authored because I have a talent in writing with 3 published books. I believe this is a unique business since people are still buying cars and there are many youths who can be adsorbed in the business. About the children I am still unmarried.

My Business

Currently I work in a tour company and I also run a car wash business where I have employed 3 young men. I am glad that apart from earning an extra income from the car wash business, I have also employed 3 youths who would be unemployed thus wasting away. Car wash services are in much need because there are so many cars being bought and also when you provide high quality services, clients will flock your place. I decided to start this business since it requires less capital and chances of making losses are very minimal. On average we wash between 15 to 20 cars, thus making an income of about Ks. 30,000 (About US$400 dollars) I use the profits to expand the business and also paying university fees for my younger sister. If I get the loan, I want to expand the business by buying Car vacuum cleaners, buffing machines and an extra car wash machine

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to buy another carwash machine. This is because the car wash has really grown and we are washing many more cars. So with an extra car wash machine, I will be able to expand the business. I am hopeful that you will grant me this loan just like the other one.
