The purchase has been of great help enabling me to increase the stock and margin profit as well.
The increase has enabled me to repay the loan amount. I started the business with borrowed 2 crates of soda but today I have more than 10 of mine. I thank God for this achievement. I 'm close to Kiambu Mall where I take my children for several activities e.g bouncing Consul.

I wish to thank my lenders seriously for my previous loan.
I used the previous loan to add to what I had to buy more materials to see that i complete charcoal stove .

My interest in the charcoal stove is that it can cook meals without blacking or staining the pots.
It burns without smoke and it very easy to get started..

Please support me, support Africa, support empowerment, support youth development... Thanks and God bless you.


Many thanks for lending me the first loan instalment.
I would however wish to request for more. 30000kshs
This will enable the business to grow and for us to make bulk products as requested by our clients. we are currently unable to do that due to challenges in accessing funding. If you fund us, you wont regret it and you will be changing lives.
Here are some of my latest projects. I have one assistant and another on temporal basis since I cant afford to pay fully. Thanks in advance.

Buying of modem and scanning

The previous loan was of great help to me and also to my family as a way of diversity.since I and my wife are able to earn easily without too much pressure than before. My wife has now ceased to be a house wife and now is a self employed lady meaning her due without so much struggle. The amount that she earns is admirable since she can sell goat milk and sell some kids and get her erning. Lastl month of November three goats gave birth to five kids and after two months of suckling she will sell at 5000/-ksh that will amount to 25000/- that is at the beginning of new year 2019 also those animals are producing six litters of milk daily and sells at an average of 300/- per day since the milk is sold locally( not all goats have given birth and if so larger Amount of milk will not be sold locally and so an increase in cost). At least the loan have given us courage, thank u lenders.
