I grew up in a christian family my father was the pastor of Kenya Assemblies Of God Nakuru Kenya growing up as a pastors child was a bit challenging and honestly i didnt like it then because everyone expected us to behave in a certain way like we live in heaven with the angles for instance I was expected to dress up in long dresses which I didn't like any time I dressed in trousers or a short dress people would point fingers and say look at the pastors daughter this was not good at all, i went to school here in nakuru did my Olevels in nakuru too but went to nairobi for my diploma course in Housekeeping, just after my collage i got married though this was not what i wanted for myself but because i got pregnant i decided to get married and for 15 years of my life i was a stay at home mum and because i loved my housekeeping carrier so much i thought of ways of how i could go back to my passionate carrier and by the grace of God i bounced back.
I started my business in 2010 i have 22 rooms where guest check inn for bed and breakfast my business is situated in Nakuru town just 1km from the great Lake Nakuru, Sleepway Cottages as they are known have small dinning area where guest have there breakfast there, our rooms are big and spacious and our prices are quite affordable we charge USD15 for bnb and USD12 for bed only, i get 10-15 guests everyday i love my work it has made me be who i am today. I was passionate about hosting guests and making them comfortable while back at home and i said to myself when i grow up i would like to be a housekeeper and this is how i started my carrier i went to collage for housekeeping course and in 1998 i graduated. I use my profit in improving my business buying repairing and maintaining my business, i save alot and this has helped me to pay school fees for my children, i live in my own house and my business has helped me to buy new furniture in my house and a vehicle that i use in running my day to day errands.
I really want to buy a new washing machine for laundry work at my hotel, this will make the work so easy and especially during rainy seasons that are just around the corner, i have bedsheets and towels that sometimes during rainy seasons they just dont dry up quckly or never dry up at all, this season has brought alot of frustrations to because during this seasons we use all our extra sheets and towels and our work load become so huge that i have to employ day workers to come and give a helping hand, this for sure has been so frustrating, but with a washing machine the work will be easy, the bedsheets and towels will now need less sunlight to dry them up since the washing machine has a dryer.
As you all know that laundry and housekeeping are two of the most important functions in a hotel, we are committed to making our guests feel comfortable in our rooms, i like it when a guest come in from their work place and find a clean bed with clean bed covers, thats why a washing machine will be of a great help at my work place, i am looking to purchase a high efficiency LG washing machine, with a capacity of 12k/Dry 8kg.
