About Me

Throughout my life, I have always desired that girl-child be protected as the boys are. I have always believed that when girls are given equal chance then they can help men to uplift society from poverty. I am pro gender equality and I have been working for that throughout my work. To achieve this, i have decided to start businesses that would enable people to respect us as women. I have started a business in transport to help the youth get employment and help their families too. i also work towards this to achieve self reliance as a woman of substance in society. I have decided to work it out with men to help achieve sustainability and development.

My Business

My business deals with transportation of goods and people over short distances. I managed to acquire a second hand motor cycle and repaired it. I gave this motor cycle to a young man who i using it to transport goods over short distances at a cost. In the end, i get ksh. 300 per day when my motor cycle is utilized. this business is good because it enables people to transport goods and people from remote areas to their destinations at affordable costs. It also enables access to goods from different parts of the county. I believe that Zidisha loan would enable me to add more motor cycles to the filed to employ more youths as well as move towards motor vehicle transportation and if possible, bigger transportation vessels. I ask Zidisha lenders to Kindly assist me towards this goal, thanks.

Loan Proposal

First, may I begin by thanking Zidisha, and the lenders who helped me with the first loan, i saw a lot of improvements in my business. I managed to give opportunities to other people to earn in the transport sector, for that, i am grateful. Now, the next stage i want to work on is to improve the two second hand motor cycles I have so that they may work efficiently. They need new tires and sprockets as well as tubes. I need new driving sets for each f them. Moreover, I need to buy 2 blocks for them. these refurbishments, would require $300. in addition, I'll need $153 to refurbish the house I utilize to store the motorcycles. Kindly assist me towards these goals. thanks in advance!
