About Me

I am Mercy Saidi. I was born in the western part of Kenya in the year 1992.I went to Booker Academy for my primary and secondary school studies.I later relocated to Eldoret for my degree studies.I joined Moi university where i pursued a degree in law and opted out after 3 years for a diploma in hotel catering and accomodation due to lack of school fees to complete my law studies.After my studies i was employed for 1 year in the hotel industry.In the year 2016 opted to be self employed and therefore opened a grocery store where i sell and supply fruits and vegetables around Bungoma town.Its a profitable business if well managed and i love how its adding value to my life.

My Business

I run a grocery store in Bungoma town.I sell and supply fruits and vegetables.My main customers are hotels and hospitals.I also do door to door deliveries for clients who are not able to reach the store. I make profit of up to 16,000 Kenyan shillings per week.

Project Proposal

I have clients who love my services and are willing to purchase vegetables from my store but they can't make it to my stall because they either stay far or they are sick or they are held up with work or other reasons.I will use the funds to purchase a bicycle to be used by my delivery man in door to door delivery of vegetables to such clients .
