About Me

I grow up in a family where farming is prioritize both crops and poultry were the main source of Income.
It diminishes as the time goes due to high cost of living. I had a dream that when I grow up I will embark on the same.

I have overcome financial challenge through keeping of poultry that has enable me pocket ,and sustain the dynamic economic.
After gaining skills on entrepreneurship I began my small Business of poultry farming .
Our culture value poultry for Meat.I decided to venture to Poultry because the area is mostly affected by drought and warm weather favours Poultry.

My Business

Dairy farming: I am planning to buy one dairy heifer. I would be interested to venture to this farming I own one cow and a calf .I offer milk to both local and to a nearby cooling plant.
I am interested in buying one dairy heifer to boost milk production in future to the market. I choose this mode of agribusiness as crop farming is adversely affected by long dry months in the year.
Milk production currently producing 3 liters of milk at a cost of Ksh. 35 per liter a day.

I Lease one acre of Land for Maize , and when harvested I Plant Beans too.
