About Me

My name is Mercy Zoe Wanjiru, I'm a Kenyan businesswoman. I run a company called Bush and events Africa. We organize safaris and adventure travel within Kenya and Tanzania. I started my business 5 years ago. I love my business because it's passion driven and i enjoy my work very much. I started my business from my little savings after working in another tour company for 3yrs and I always knew that someday I'll own my own business. To me it's a dream come true although I'm now seeking funds to expand my business. I plan to get a loan and buy camping gear and other outdoor essential like sleeping bags,camping seats,gazebo etc. I use the profits from my business go towards expanding my business further as i grow it step by step with the little i make over time

My Business

I have used my previous loan from Zidisha to buy camping tents,mattresses, solar lamps,camping seats etc and this has really helped my business to grow. I'm very grateful to Zidisha lenders! I use the items i bought to run my trips hence i save on hiring from other sources like i used to, and sometimes when I'm not using the gear, i hire them out as well. The vehicle is being used to transport my camping equipment which i used to transport in a hired vehicle so now I'll be cutting the hiring costs. The vehicle can also be used to transport people which is a plus in my line of business.

Loan Proposal

Dear Lenders,
Thank you in advance for always offering your support. I am very grateful
I wish to take a loan to upgrade my business vehicle. I plan to get new tyres, repaint the vehicle as well as upgrade the seats. All this work will require 1350$ to have a perfect final finish. This vehicle i use to transport my camping equipment as well as transport tourists when they visit us.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Income Source

During the past few months, i have been using the vehicle to also transport groceries from the farms to the city when it isn't busy either ferrying tourists or camping equipment. Hence i have no doubt that with this combination, i will be able to pay my loan.
