I am 34 years of age married with 3 kids a boy and 2 girls. I reached standard eight from 1984-1991 at therandu primary school. After school, I started involving myself in farming which gives us good income to sustain my family.I also do have 10 sheeps and 3cows,which it gives me a total of 50.000 Ksh in a year.
My business is farming for commercial and I do plant Maize, beans, vegetables which gives profit because in my area people don't involve them self in vegetable farming and that's why I decided to include it. The risk of this business is in dry season and heavy rain because it need a short rain ,it also need insecticide for it to grow well. .
This loan I will use it in buying a land since I need more space to practice my farming and to able to plant new varieties of food plants. Since currently I am planting a lot of different varieties in the same piece of land which a time it gives me challenges when it comes to pests.
