About Me

I am a dad living with my family. I come from western Kenya and have a passion for commercial chicken rearing. I would like to partner with Zidisha to grow a business empire and improve my livelihood and that of my family. It is quite challenging here in Kenya to secure a good livelihood. The cost of living has increased while employers are not increasing their pay hence the need to think outside the box.
I want to secure a good education for my children and can not do that with my current income.
I gained interest in chicken from an early age and enjoy rearing them alot.
I intend to move to the next level apart from just rearing I want to start a hatchery.

My Business

Currently I have over fifty chicken but aim to have two hundred by the end of the year. Chicken meat is highly nutritious and their eggs sales assist in buying them some commercial feeds apart from the left overs i feed them with.
Chicken is a delicacy in my area so on high demand
The profits will be used for re investment and ultimately will expand to goat rearing.
I will repay the loan from sales of the grown birds which will happen fortnightly as they are of different ages.

Project Proposal

This is a project I did before and went very well. I require to acquire five local layers as I have a cock and revive my chicken rearing project. I already have the infrastructure in place.
