About Me

Hello,

My name is Catherine Wanjiku Rimui. I am a Kenyan national, currently resident in Nakuru County, within the larger Rift valley province, Kenya.

I am married to Mr. David Wanjohi and we have 4 children and one grandchild. Super exciting.

I am currently not employed, and it is only my husband who has been supporting the family, which can be difficult. I would therefore like to contribute and help my husband in meeting the needs of our family.

I have been doing kitchen gardening, leaning towards vegetables for subsistence use, and that has assisted in some of our expenses, where food and nutrition are involved.

Recently I have developed an interest in poultry rearing, and while I now have 10 chickens, I am looking to expand my brood and in the process make it an income-generating prospect.

I am excited to start this phase of my life, seeing that at my age, formal employment is off the table. I would be happy to apply my time and strength to this project, and with your help, I will be able to contribute to raising our family.

I am a firstborn to my parents, and I hail from a polygamous setting, meaning I have very many brothers and Sisters. Almost 20 in number! Our family reunions are therefore usually full of fun and laughter, as is typical with large gatherings, it's literally a clan.

I am therefore happy to be incorporated into the Zidisha family, which is global, and founded on principles of kindness, generosity, trust, and confidence. We are indeed each other's keepers, and that is humbling. I remain entirely grateful.
Looking forward to walking this journey together.

My Business

Hello again,

I am looking to expand my chicken rearing project starting with broiler chicken to sell chicken meat, and later expand to incorporate layers.

Later on, with proper equipment, I will also be able to sell chicks to other persons involved in poultry farming to rear for meat and eggs.

I will need to build chicken houses, buy chicken food, ensure there's medicine at hand, and feeding/watering equipment.

There will also be a need for a thermostat to regulate and maintain viable temperatures for hatching chicks.

Project Proposal

Dear Zidisha,

As revealed in a previous application, chicken feed happens to be the ost expensive expenses, and yet it is a daily indispensable need.

I prefer to buy in bulk and not have to worry about the recurrent need that is chicken feed, and that reduces on some of the stress while ensuring that the poject remains a going concern into the foreseeable future.
