About Me

I am an entrepreneur , a nutritionist by training. I have worked variously formally and informally. I run a start up called Glofha general supplies and a women empowerment group called kaleluya women self help group. Besides this I run a business of money transfer and rental units which I have been slowly progressing thanks to Zidisha.
I come from a very humble back ground but discipline , hard work and honesty has really shaped my life and blessed my fortunes.

My Business

I run a dairy farm now with 2 Fresian cows which calved in Dec , I sell milk and use that for feed and save the rest. I equally farm maize and beans and other vegetables in a 2 acre piece of land .
I have rental units that give me a regular monthly income that support me and my family.

Project Proposal

I wish to raise funds to buy maize seeds, fertilizer and and plough the farm for planting in this season of long rains from end of march to August.
This will help my family for food support and we shall sell some in the end of the year for financial support.
