About Me

I am Sophy Nerima, now 77 years old a widow with 3 children and a retired banker from Busia County in Kenya. Did my education to college level of secretarial course. After my retirement I went into farming of maize, groundnuts, cassava and beans. I sell to cereal retailers after harvest which now enables me to sustain myself and family.

Busia county land is fertile and rainy all through most months of the year thus able to harvest maize twice a year.

My hobby is relaxing under my mango tree shade after a hard day in the farm and reading my holy Bible.

My Business

I harvest my maize, groundnuts, cassava and beans and sell to cereal retailers who in return sell to household consumers. Busia is near the Uganda border thus cereals are in demand for both commercial and household use.

I use the profits I make after selling to buy more seeds and fertilizer for the next planting season and some money I use for my home expenses.

I be glad to get the loan and with this loan I will be able to buy better fertilizer to increase my harvest for next season. I promise to abide by Zidisha rules and regulations. Thank you in advance.

Loan Proposal

I will buy watering pipes and chemical spraying machine for my farm, at times there is drought and we spray water and chemical manually in the farm. This will increase yield and produce during the non rainy season.
