My name is Linus Melly aged 34 years old married with one kid. I live in Kapang'etuny village in Kapsabet Division within Nandi County. I work with Kenya Police Service at the rank of constable under Tourist Police Unit where i am currently based in Mombasa. I did my primary and secondary school certificates in Tegat Primary and Kamobo Secondary respectively. I later joined Kenya Police College in Kiganjo. I started dairy farming business so that i can be able to meet basic needs to my family and as well pay for my degree course. The proceeds i get from my project goes to animal feeds and paying my two employees while the rest caters for my daughters school fees. I love reading and making good new friends whom we can share progressive ideas in our lives.
My project is growing steadily. I have seven cows which i rear in a small family land. I plan to set aside certain amount of money from my salary that i will always use to repay my Zidisha loan.In the mean time, the product (milk) from my dairy is sold to the local community since the quantity produced is small.The demand for milk in my location is high which has prompted intermediaries (brokers) to go round collecting milk from different houses and taking them to Kenya Creameries Corporation (KCC). The only challenge that faces my project is change in weather (dry season) and out-break of cattle diseases. An increase of number of livestock requires that I purchase a machine for cutting nappier grass.
My third loan will straight away go to construction. Now that i have bought construction materials and did fencing with my first and second loan, i plan to start construction right from the foundation to roof top. My earlier plan was to immediately start construction but later realized that the funds were minimal. With all the construction materials available, it will be easier for me to finish the work and start another project. I once again urge the lenders to fund my third loan to enable me finish my project and make a change in life and my community. Thank you and God bless you all.
