About Me

Last Born In a Family of Six, I am such a passionate young man with who thrives to succeed in whatever he does.

I did my Primary school at Josana Academy, a few hundred meters from where I currently Live. Passed Highly of course :-)

Proceeded to High School at Usenge High in Siaya County and Finally did My A Level's at St Lawrence Schools and Collages In Uganda, Still a bright dude, I Got 3 Principle PASSES in Chemistry, Mathematics And Swahili and A Subsidiary Pass in Biology.

That Landed me to University of Nairobi School Of Chemistry where I did my degree in Industrial Chemistry,

However to Survive the hard times in the City and to support my self through college I used my computer skills and proficiency to land myself a few jobs here and their in an online freelancing platform.(Upwork)

I have been an exceptional contractor all through with a high feedback rating. Well What I have achieved through my hard work is quite commendable however I always believe that there is more to me than just sitting in front of a computer working late nights with my clients and what have we.

This inspired me to start a business I had so much passion for even as a Kid, and that's the chicken business. With a little saving from my weekly wage and a huge support from my Father, in terms of land and someone to work with in the farm once in a while, I Started the chicken farm

Well, I'm a dreamer and I will try everything to archive my dream of one day making this chicken ranch a competing brand in the country and also economically sustain the community by ensuring they get good quality chicken at abnormally low cost.

My Business

Many eCommerce stores have been developed selling lots of different products with variant qualities and prices.

For most online shoppers its always a question of...

-Is this product of the best quality?
-Should I buy it online and wait for 2-28 days just to get a product I want?

This, in turn, has lead to buyers having to spend lots of hours reading through pages of reviews and browsing through product varieties to find the cheapest seller.

What if all this was to go away?

Well, A few weeks ago I started an eCommerce store. axestore.online.

-I need your help to get high-quality products directly from manufacturers to the consumers erasing any middle man in the way thus greatly reducing the cost of the products to the masses in Africa

- I have also set up a system to ensure we can achieve same-day delivery
