About Me

I am a businessman and a farmer from Keringet, Kuresoi constituency in Nakuru County. My business is in Information Technology sector; I own a cyber cafe and a computer services shop in Molo. My business in situated in Tuulek House, Olenguruone centre, Kuresoi South Sub-county.
I offer computer services: cyber, typesetting, designing various items, printing, photo-printing, photocopy, scanning, lamination e.t.c).
In farming, I grow potatoes, peas and rear sheep.

My Business

I started the business in October 2012 with a computer which my friend assisted me with. I had to lend a printer from a friend at a monthly fee. The little amount of money I had was used to pay for office rent and license fees.
The business has been successful; currently I have acquired my own machines worth over (USD 1,948) and own other assets (bought directly from business income) worth over (USD 8,534).
I am also currently investing in a sheep farm.
The only hindering factor is raising enough capital in a short span of time; but I believe ZIDISHA is going to assist me solve this problem.

Project Proposal

I am a sheep farmer. The problem is that I don't own a ram which has lead to delay in breeding of my ewes. This amount will enable me to buy good breed of a young ram. Improved breeds of my sheep will mean a good income from my farm.
