About Me

I grew up in a rural-urban environment since my home is about 12km to the capital city Nairobi.I well fit in both rural and urban lifestyles.
I believe in hardwork ,honesty and focus.I also believe in God and that Africa can rise up to middle economy in my generation.
I am a growing property developer and earn income through leasing.
I want to grow gradually with Zidisha and finally construct rental houses which are in high demand this end.
I want to give my children (3) great education.
With positive mind and vision sky is my limit.

My Business

Ever since joining zidisha I have never relented. I started from poultry to green grocery business.
After I acquired my last loan I managed to open my company Resmmiq Services and switched gears to construction material supplies.
My dream is to grow and become a big contractor in Africa.
Thanks to zidisha.

Loan Proposal

This fund will assist me in restocking chick mash cost about 15 kg @ 4.6 USD
This will feed about 20 birds for a fortnight as I prepare them for growers(another type of feed)
Progressionary,as I continue in this spirit I shall sell the birds at the age of 6 weeks.
Having bought them at 1 USD a mature broiler can fetch 3.6 USD in a good market day.
