About Me

I have gone through a lot in my life. My mother passed away when I was two years old. My father passed away before I completed secondary education. I went a lot especially due to non supporting relatives. I have however been able to take a diploma in early childhood. In today's life, orphaned children do not get enough support. Being one of them, I had to miss classes and look for some menial jobs to get food. After completing school. I did not get any financial and moral support. I ended up doing a simple course whereas I had the potential for a greater course from my grades. After completing my education, I have started motivational speaking to help encourage the hopeless in life. I look forward to helping more people through this venture.

My Business

I am an ECDE teacher. I use the income to support my family though the income is never enough. I also use the land I have to do agriculture. Currently, I am growing vegetables and doing poultry farming whereby I am rearing indigenous breeds. I sell the eggs and some of the chickens to earn money. I have also been making a few coins from the sale of surplus vegetables. I however cannot manage to till a bigger piece because of the method of fetching water. I would wish to install a pump and piping to work better.

Project Proposal

I have been growing vegetables far a while now. The biggest challenge I have had however is fetching water from my 60 feet borehole. I will buy a water pump worth Ksh. 5000 and use the rest for piping and installation of the pump. I believe this project will help feed muly family and the surplus will also feed the community

    My purpose for this loan is to buy a better breed of chicken called croilers. I shall buy one day old chicks. I'm sure these chicks will be beneficial to my poultry farm since I shall get better output. Thank you very much for lending me this money.

    The loan that I received last time was very helpful to me. I'm very grateful for the hand that you offered me. The brooder that I purposed to buy was very expensive and I therefore did not manage to buy the item I had said in my request. I however used the loan to better my chicken house. I bought some chicken wire and fixed it on the house to better the aeration of the house. Thank you again.

    Hi Jeremiah, I would be very happy if you could post a photo of the brooder after buying. And of your chicken in their poultry house of course. :-) Good luck with your business!

    Thank you very much for funding my loan. I will use the money to buy a brooder as earlier indicated. I'm sure this will go a long way in promoting my poultry farming. Thanks again

    I just completed repaying my sh.630 loan.paying it was not with much struggle since my chicken business had already started giving me some little cash from sale of a few eggs. I'm so glad that it enabled me to start rearing my own chickens. Thank you for making me my own boss. I wish to continue working with you.

    Hi dear lender, I received the loan of sh.630 though it took some time before being disbursed. It is however never too late. Thank you again. I have since used the money to buy feeds for my chicks. They are developing very well. I just don't know what I would do without that help. Thank you again

    I am greatful for the first loan that you offered me. It really supported me to set up my chicken structure. I however have a problem in accessing my second loan. I went through all the processes and I was told that it would be sent into my M-PESA account within a week. This has not happened yet. Kindly help me to access this loan. Thank you as I wait to hear from you
