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.

    Dear Lenders,
    Thank you very much for believing in my dream of establishing a commercial dairy farm.
    I managed to build a store for storing hay and fodder for my dairy enterprise.
    Nutrition is very key in dairy production and I have been able to double my earnings since building the store.
    The dairy animals can now get the required daily matter intake for maximum production.
    I take this opportunity to thank the lenders for their kind gesture and I would like to kindly invite lenders to Kenya to see for themselves how transformative Zidisha is.
    Kindly lenders keep in touch with me on my email [email protected] to arrange for a visit to Kenya.
    Thank you.

    Dear Lenders.
    Thank you very much for the loan and for offering a helping hand towards the growth of my dairy enterprise.
    I received Ksh. 35,504 which I have used to build a feeds store for my commercial dairy enterprise as per the attached photo.
    Thank you for believing in my dream of having a fully commercial dairy enterprise.
    I also would like to invite you to Kenya to see how Zidisha is transforming my life in real time.
    I look forward to your contribution towards the other upcoming projects in the near future. I truly appreciate your time and generosity.

    Dear Lenders,

    Thank you very much for the loan and for believing in my dream of transforming my dairy farm into a fully commercial dairy farm.
    I will use the loan to build a store that will be used for storing hay and other fodder for my dairy enterprise.
    This will help in promoting production among my dairy animals subsequently leading to higher returns.
    Thank you very much and I look forward to working with you hand in hand to achieve my dream of owning a commercial dairy farm.

    Dear Lenders,

    Thank you very much for your support. I have been able to expand my agribusiness through your your support.
    I used the previous loan to buy timber which I plan to use to build a store for my dairy enterprise.
    I will use the store to preserve hay and other fodder thereby increasing productivity for my dairy animals.
    I can't wait for the day that I will fully commercialize my dairy farm.
    Thank you very much indeed.

    Dear Lenders ,
    I received my loan of Ksh 14504.
    My plan is to build a store for conserving hay and other fodder for my dairy enterprise.
    I have already bought timber as per the attached photo and I hope to use subsequent loans to buy other materials and hire labour to build the store.
    Thank you very much lenders.
    The transformation is real.
