About Me

I am the second born in a family of six children. I went to mukumu primary school and st Agnes shibuye and later joined Bukura agricultural college for diploma in agricultural biotechnology.
I have always loved farming and when I searched for a white collar job and failed I resorted to farming,I started a mixed farm where I grew both horticulture and kept poultry, the business has been growing slowly due to lack of capital,but I am very proud zidisha would help me execute my expansion plan even faster.
I have a young daughter and she is 8 months, I am working hard to give her better life.
I am staunch choir member in my local church and a youth leader , I spend my free time in mentor ship programme for young farmers as well as singing.

My Business

i am small scale mixed farmer keeping both poultry and growing horticulture. I practice organic farming and use minimal chemicals on my products. I provide fertilized eggs as well as poultry for meat , and vegetables to my customers.
The desire for healthy organic products has increased and most of my clients are high end households ,hospitals and a school.
I choose farming because my desire as child was to make food available , I am happy I am doing it ,but I feel I should further expand my farm.
In good monthly I spend $250 on feeds ,water,electricity and labor and get profits of $250-$300 per month.
I spend the proceeds from the business through, paying fees for my siblings, donation to orphanage, and reinvestment.

Loan Proposal

I am kindly asking you you to help me raise a loan of $400 so that i can buy 300 poultry . i would buy the poultry at $1 and use the balance of $90 to buy feeds. I expect to sell the poultry after 3 months and make a profit of 50%these would help boost my capital and improve my business. thank you
