About Me

My name is Maryline Okumu. I am the third born in our family. I schooled at Konyonzo Primary School and then went to Sacred Heart Secondary School. I worked hard and passed my secondary school examinations and was admitted to study soil science at Egerton University.

I joined college for my first year in January 2014, but my dreams were cut short at the university admission desk, since I didn't have fees. I was so stressed as I carried my luggage back home. My mom, who is my pillar, always encouraged me. I joined her back home and, as we went to our farm together, I realized I could make my living out of horticulture farming.

With no capital and desperate to raise money, I started planting kales and cabbages in our land. I only planted a small portion, but I made $300 from the small piece of land. That encouraged me so much, I used the money to buy farm inputs and expanded my farm.

I come from the Wanga community. In our community, we have diverse culture, but what amazes is that some of the cultures include dancing and cock fighting. I like playing basketball and reading novels during my free time.

My Business

I am a horticulture farmer. I produce kales and cabbages for my clients, who are mainly urban dwellers. These crops are important because they provide nutrients to consumers and are also affordable to many.

I chose this business because it was less capital-intensive and I was also practicing farming while helping my mother, so I didn't find it very hectic: it was easy to adopt. With time I have developed a lot of passion for farming; I believe I will make a successful farmer in the future.

My typical costs in a month are $50 in a month. My revenues average is $150 in a month (profits ($100). I save deposit 50% of my income in a university account, hopeful to go back in September, this year if I would have saved enough. I use the balance to buy food and other basic needs for my family.

Loan Proposal

Thank you lenders for the kindness and financial support you have accorded me. I am done with the construction of the poultry unit. I am now looking forward to stocking the poultry unit with 200 improved indigenous chickens for both meat and eggs production. I would spend $280 on the 200 one-month-old chicks. The chicks are already immunized and therefore the mortality rate is low. I will also buy 10 bags of feeds that will last for the next three months. Thank you.
