I was born in Bungoma, Western Kenya. My parents then moved to Mombasa then Embu. I went to school in Western then went to Uganda for Secondary school then came back to Kenya for college education where I took a human resource management course. I am currently an entrepreneur dealing with African stuff, women handbags, poultry and Rabbit farming.
I do African wear making dresses for children, ladies and men, handbags, shoes, seat covers, curtains, purses and African gifts like printing on rock. ( Chic Afrique Kenya on facebook). All the above are made in African material. Inspired by passion and driven by Masai dress, I started my business in 2014.
In 2017 i started ontrack Media Agency ( www.ontrackmedia.co.ke which is a Marketing and Advertising Agency . It was doing well till Corona hit !! i had to close my office , sales drop since almost all my clients were working from home and just didn't need printing services much. I had to think out of box since i also believe in diversity.
In 2018 , i started Keyla Zuri Stores (check out on facebook) named after my only 2 year old daughter so that am able to channel some savings into her account to plan her future. i still have a lot of stock but the market is really low
In April 2020, i began Poultry and Rabbit ,and onion farming ( Zurik Farm on Facebook) i sell both chicken, eggs and chicken manure . I also sell rabbit urine to other farmers, rabbit meat and rabbit manure. I sold almost all stock and bought 1 acre where i intend to settle with my daughter in the near future. Due to financial constrains i appeal for your help so that am able to increase my flock and feed them. Among all my business its Farming that is doing better the rest are a bit slow.
I have many pictures of all my business i request my lenders to visit the above facebook pages for more information and videos
I really thank zidisha for walking with me.
Here again to raise a loan of KES 63070
The loan will help me EXPAND my rabbit house ) Most of my clients ( butcheries) prefer to taking many kgs than buying one rabbit. Rabbits population grow very fast but decided to separate my male and female them because of limited space. I dont want to congest them in a small space.
I have ready Market but not in position to expand the structure because i just expanded my chicken house to a accommodate more layers which has been my main source of income to support my family
I also used the money from chicken, onions etc to buy 1 acre so that all my projects are on my piece of land
Looking forward to your support.
As per my profile you realize that i have diversified my projects to enable me have a continues income which have been able to attain.
I sell my eggs weekly, have small hotels i supply my chicken for meat, some butcheries still give me rabbit meat orders, not forgetting greens like spinach and sukuma which are consumed on a daily basis. Also when you look at my previous loans you will realize have never defaulted as i always plan myself well.
I believe the MPESA statement have shared should also speak for me since most of my clients pay me by mpesa . I also pay all my suppliers using Mpesa which can be confirmed .
With the current pandemic i managed to buy 1 acre and moved away for a leased land, still managed to put my kids in an international school, always pay all my workers and my house rent on time . In short i would like to share my other business were affected except food industry!.
