I am the second born in a family of eight. My parents are peasant farmers who by feeding us with a meal is luck because it is hard to get one. I have undergone my O levels and college education where it was so difficult for me to be in school throughout. I had to work for four days in a week to raise my education fee and go to class the rest week days. It reached somewhere that I couldn't be able to go to class again and became a street boy for sometime. In my family i am the breadwinner hence i must work extra harder to meet my families and my needs.
I successfully opened a small kiosks way back in 2010. I used to sell animal feeds only but since i joined Zidisha i have been dealing with animal feeds and mineral licks.
My business has got a title by name Stop-over Agrovet. It is situated in Kigumo town Kiambu County, in Kenya. In my business I have employed one person whom we work with I buy several bags of animal feeds and sell them by either the whole bag or by measuring it into kilograms. In our area daily farming is our economic activity hence making the product to move at a high speed. I buy 10 bags of animal feeds in a week at a cost of 25,000/= and sell them in the same week at a cost of 30,000/= making a profit of 5,000/= a week and in month time pocketing 30,000/= profit. I also sell mineral licks in my business.
If i expound on this figures i am capable of making good profit annually. Am now focused on expanding my business on higher heights and open up other related business branches in my neighbouring village. I also would like to introduce dairy related products and make my business a dairy farming hub for all farmers. Since I joined zidisha, I have grown economically because from the loans I had previously applied from zidisha have helped restock my business. I will be glad if Zidisha Microlending Movement will consider my proposal and fund my business.
Hello Zidisha family. I hope this application finds you well.
Over the years, i wanted to own a farm. I did not have the funds to be able to start that idea until Zidisha family made my dream come true. I applied for a loan and i bought my first calf and i repaid. It is so much enjoyable running your project no matter the size.
Today if you allow me please, i am applying for a loan to buy concentrates for my calves. Concentrates will provide faster growth rate, substituent green fodder, help in growth and development of the calves in relation to prepare them for breeding hence more yield.
I am therefore requesting you kindly to lend me and help me build up my herd by providing concentrates to my herd.
Thank you as you lend me.
