Am Camillus Konjallo a Kenyan Citizen who went through the school system hoping for a better job at the end of the tunnel. Life wasn’t easy after school and that’s how I found myself as a fisherman at Dunga Beach in Kisumu County. At least I could earn a living but the future wasn’t promising. I wasn’t satisfied with the income and i felt like something wasn’t going on right. Therefore, thoughts of looking for greener pastures and something else to do came strolling in my mind and that’s when I decided to travel to Nairobi since In Ushagoo we believed Nairobi was the real deal.
On arrival to Nairobi, I struggled before getting a job as an insurance agent to be paid peanuts. The job was so demanding with lots of targets and goals to achieve within a given timeline which if you didn’t meet, the impact will show up in your end month paycheck. Yes, I was making some money but I lacked time to even spend the peanuts i was working. Sometimes I had to work for more than 15hrs a day in order to meet my targets. I saw myself going to the beyond early so i decided to look for something else i could do on part time to meet my increasing demands including supporting parents and siblings back at home.
Through my browsing on Facebook to kill boredom after work I came across the GIF opportunity and I was invited to attend a training to understand how the business works. After the 2hrs presentation something clicked in my mind and I said is what I’ve been looking for and i decided to resign from my insurance job to do a business i was only presented to for only 2hrs in full time basis.
Of course, my family, friends and colleagues at work at one point thought I was crazy but i needed change so I listened to my dreams and new found family. Business started and a lot happened but to cut the story in nutshell Within 3yrs in the business, I had achieved a lot; not just paying my own rent but i also managed to purchase my own machine Toyota Fielder KCP 837E.
