About Me

Greetings to All,

My names are sharon jepkemoi sang, kenyan by birth, and i work and live in kenya.I'm a first born in a family of four, born and and brought up in rift valley where our parents were pastrolist and farmers.
My mum passed on when i was a young girl , which exposed me to alot of hardship i had to work hard both in school and society because my siblings were depending on me as a first born.
After finishing college i was employed as a sales person where i have gained alot of experience in sales and started doing my part time job, which as enabled me to raise my family and also give back to society.

My Business

I do farming, of which i borrowed the capital from zidisha , and i thank God because i have been able to grow my business day by day and also use my profits for upkeep of my family, and the society at large.

Loan Proposal

I will use the funding to buy more stocks in my wines and spirits , since business is now picking up , since we do sales of take away alot , because customers are not allowed to stay out for long because of the curfew.
I also do a side hussle of selling farm products, which is selling alot despite the pandemc.

Income Source

It's true most business are not oparational, and i thank God because the lockdown was removed and hotel industry is now oparating.
And the wines and spiritsa nd farm products have been selling despite the pandemic.
I promise to pay in time.

    Sharon has been unwell and had to dig her profits for her treatment, but since she's been doing fine for the last few days, she intends to service her loan when she fully opens again her business.
