House roofing (timbers and iron sheets)

Next project

I will use this loan to prepare a plate for printing covers.

Dear Moonknight and Gausdal,
I am very glad to have you as my lenders and I want to wish you well as you go about your daily activities.
So far my business is doing well with an average monthly revenue of ksh 115700. I am confident that with your support this figure will go up because from my end I have the determination that I have to reach my goal of making a giant company that supplies bar soap to the entire country and even East and Central Africa.
I am placing a request for a second loan but I am getting a response that my gross revenue is required, but in my profile I have included all that.
I believe this error can be sorted so that I continue growing my business through your loans.

Best regards

Denis Aloo

Growing photocopy and printing business

Hi Lenders,
Thank you. I received the loan Kshs. 119,435. I went out over the weekend and bought a rice cooker (kshs. 6,000), a pressure cooker (kshs. 4,000) The pressure cooker cooks githeri (a mixture of rice and beans) within 30 minutes as opposed to 1 hour when using an ordinary sufuria/pot. I bought a blow drier so that i can be making my daughter's hair from the house instead of going to the saloon to have it done. The blowdrier cost Kshs. 4,000. I bought toners (kshs. 10,000) in bulk and am sure this will last me a long time depending on the work that i will get. I have saved kshs. 35,000 for school fees for next term. Schools will close on August 1st so we plan to take them for a holiday, we are yet to choose the destination. I shall repair the colour printer and send some money for the cow's feed back in kinangop.
Oh, thank you again and again for the loan, for your kind and generous hearts.

Cabbage farming

I changed my business from handling plastic bags to Farming

Purchase raw material for brick-making

Greetings Lenders.
I want to give an update about my brick business progress, the process of burning bricks some time ago is not so smooth because the rain fell quite swift when the burning took place so that the fire temperature is not optimal and make some black bricks so it can not be sold to consumers, although later this immature brick can be burned back in the next burning process but this will increase the workload again.

Even so, we keep the spirit because there are no obstacles that can not be overcome as long as we keep trying to the maximum.
Thank you for all your support!

Buy a chicken-feed machine to make own animal feed

Just a simple update:

This past couple of weeks I had to skip a payment as I had traveled to a place where I could not access a cell signal. I had an opportunity to also learn how other people are managing their growth, and what issues they face.

I did get some valuable lessons that I hope to implement with time.

I am almost clearing repayment of my current loan, and will sure post another one!

This year I will be finishing my program in University, and shift focus on helping my sons increase their knowledge and passion in agribusiness, or manufacturing.

Perhaps a day is coming, and I sure look forward to it, when we shall achieve what is still a viable niche in the market here, that is produce and raise enough chickens to at least see white meat make it to the diet regularly and at an affordable cost.
