About Me

I went to school at mission schools where we were trained to be self reliant and disciplined in life. I took things the way they came and that way I managed to complete my high school and joined a technical teacher training college. I was a teacher for more than ten years before deciding to be on my own.
I can say that I have been blessed because all of my three children have gone through the university and are working.
I love to help the less fortunate in life so that they can have something that they are doing to change their lives for the better.

My Business

I own a metal workshop where I make wrought iron gates, doors, grills and windows which are in great demand due to the construction work going on around my place. I may say that I trained as young boy to do welding and motor vehicle mechanics but I saw that there is less hassle in welding. The business has grown and now I have started a hardware shop for selling the materials that are needed for welding. My customers are the welders who near my location.
I have started repairing angle grinders and arc welding machines which are giving me an extra income.

Loan Proposal

i would like to buy metal bars,square tubes and mild steel plates worth US$ 700 to add to my hardware/ workshop stock. This will help me save on transport since the number of times and the time I spend when I go to do the purchase will be reduced. This will make my profit to go up and thus benefit my family.
I go for purchase at least 4 times a week and use about US$ 20 per trip, if this can be reduced by half then I will save US$ 40 every month and of course the profit will increase due to the increase in volume of the purchase.
