About Me

I was brought up in central Kenya, Kiambu county, Thika Sub County. I am the fifth born in a family of seven siblings. I attended Mutuma Primary school and proceeded to Mutuma Secondary schoo in Thika. I did my certificate in secretarial course in St. John's Community centre in Pumwani and did my Computer packages in Data centre. i did part time jobs for sometimes. the meager wages i saved enabled me start my own business in Nairobi, buruburu estate where i started with two machines and a printer. i opened acybercafe. many young people like betting games and since not many busisses of my kind are there, atleast i am left with something at the end of each day. i have got four children of which my fisrt born wants to be an it engineer where the other three wants to businesses. on weekends, after church i join other women deaconesses to visit the sick and needy people in the society.

My Business

As i have indicated above, i started a cybercafe with 70 dollars as my capital. with this amount, i bought two computer machines and a printer both of which were second hand. i opted on this kind of business because it was in line with what i did in college. with the sportpesa betting and many other betting available in our society now, i tend to have many youths coming. my problem right now is lackof machines. in a single day my total expenses range between ksh800 and ksh1000 . what i collect in a day ranges between ksh900 and ksh1500 in a good day. part of my profits are used personal upkeep and expanding my business. like recntly i bought a binding machine from those savings.

Project Proposal

Dear lenders,
i hope this mail finds you well.
The reason i need this loan is to fund school fees for my nephew Daniel Kung'u whose father is mentally disturbed and his mother is not working. This will help him to get an opportunity to uplift his family after completion.
