About Me

My name is David Ndungu and I run a small IT business in Mombasa. I was born in Kiambu county near Nairobi and later re-located to Mombasa, where I came for employment after clearing my college education. I later quit my job to start my current business. My main business involves the provision of IT services such as typesetting, Internet services, and basic computer training. I also do small printing jobs, lamination and binding services. I have been in this business for the last fifteen years. I run my business on rented premises in Mombasa town.

I am married with two school-going children, one aged 13 and the other aged 8. My wife is employed as a teacher. I also do part-time jobs as a graphic designer and videographer.

My Business

My source of revenue is mainly from the proceeds that I get from my business. I supplement it from my part-time jobs that I do over the weekends and during holidays. I provide IT services in a densely populated region of Mombasa where the demand for those services is very high.

I also have keen interest in videography and this gets me good income when hired to do video jobs like wedding, birthday parties, documentaries, etc. My wife, who is an employed teacher, supports me in my endeavors.

Through Zidisha loans, I was able to start up a cybercafe and the sale of computer hardware, and this has contributed a lot to the growth of my business. I also upgraded my computer training section by offering more courses.

Loan Proposal

With this loan, I intend to spend the money as follows:
Buy 5 computers with good processing power at a total cost of $900
Fit benches and chairs for the students at a total cost $300
Buy an air conditioner at a cost of $ 350

My business is located in an economically distressed neighborhood. I am committed to participating in the capture of this neighborhood’s narrative as part of a larger effort to promote impactful and responsible development. For this reason I do train 5 students for free every three months as part of my social responsibility. If I succeed to implement my next phase of business, I will double this number to 10.
