In his own words, this is what Erasmus has to say:

"I am a business man and at the same time an educator. I was looking at my former / first job at Kanyinya Vocational Institute, when I thought of starting my own vocational school, but the funds back then were not available. I ventured into soliciting money from other sources like donors and others but still it was not enough.

I begun borrowing money from Ugafode Microfinance limited in 2011. This was because I wanted to get more funds to boost my vocational school. Since then I have managed to maintain my school up to the standard it is at now. Though it is still growing, I have managed to mentor and train students to attain skills and get jobs in the fields they've trained in.

I thank Ugafode for the good services it has made available to me since 2011 and its quick services whenever I'm in need.

May God bless you all." Erasmus
