About Me

I am a single lady in my 30s with a nine year old son called Keith. He is in standard 3 in a local school where his favourite subject is maths and he likes being the goal keeper in football. I grew up in meru county in Kenya. I am the last born of 8 children. I attended school until standard 8 and then i did a certificate in hair dressing. I love singing. On Sundays i sing in church with the choir and we also practise on Wednesday. i also like watching films.

My Business

For several years after college i worked for other hair dressing businesses until i opened my own business in 2005. At first my business was not successful so I closed it and worked for other people before trying again several times. I opened my current business near where i live in mikunduri at the start of this year. My business has now been successful as this is a busy and growing town and the community is very friendly and embrace visitors. I also sell second hand clothes from my store which has helped the business grow. With the income from the business i am able to support myself and my son and will also be able to repay my loan.

Loan Proposal

i will buy new clothes,hair relaxers,new brow dry,add more things used in beauty.
my desire is to see my business grown until i look for a bigger house and move it where it will be more spacious.
i also wish to have my business grown so that come next year but one will have my son gone to a boarding school.
and finally my dream is to have my own peace of land as i construct my own business premises and a residential home.
i believe with zidisha everything will be possible.
