About Me

I am an animal scientist by profession and I have passion for commercial dairy farming. My parents were dairy farmers and that's how they managed to educate me. Consequently I developed passion for commercial dairy farming.
I currently have a dairy farm and I managed to start a dairy farm from my salary's savings. I need to hire 10 acres of land to plant fodder for the cows. This will enable me to grow and commercialize the farm.

My Business

I work with a vet pharmaceutical company and I expect to start earning from my dairy farm soon. I have several in calf heifers in the farm which will be lactating in a few months time.
I look forward to a establishing a successful dairy farm that will be a leader in milk production in my area in and impact the community positively through provision of jobs

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to continue repaying for the water tank previously acquired through hire purchase.
I hope I will be able to finish paying for the water tank which is very essential in my dairy enterprise using the Zidisha loan.
In future, I hope to drill a borehole for my community. This will be very essential in ensuring enough water supply in my area which is water deficient.
