About Me

My name is Salome Ondego. I come from Usire Village, Bondo Sub-County ,Siaya County in Kenya. I am married with six children.
I am a teacher by profession and is self employed. I am involved in education of children and community development projects in the rural village to improve livelihoods and poverty alleviation.
I am also a farmer. I plant crops like maize, beans , vegetables fruits and sugarcane. I keep livestock too. I love planting trees as a way of conserving the environment.

My Business

I am the Director of Ebenezer Usire Academy, a low cost private primary school established in the rural village to provide quality education to vulnerable children, especially the girl child.
The school was started in 2014 and has a population of 258 pupils from ECDE to Grade 8.
The funds generated from fees payments is used to pay staff salaries and for lunch preparation. The school makes a profit of roughly 25,000 kes. The school bakery project has increased our profits. Thanks to the Zidisha Family. Some of this money usually is used for maintenance of the school buildings, and sponsoring some of the children who have difficulty in paying their school fees.

Project Proposal

The school wants to set up dairy farming project. This involves buying one in-calf grade cow to start with. The cost is about kshs 60,000. The milk produced will be used for breakfast and the rest sold out to the community. At the moment we purchase milk to add to the porridge prepared for the pupils.
The money from milk sales will be used for school development and also pay fees for some of the children who are needy.
The loan will be repaid with money from our scholl bakery project and maize farming since the milk production will not be immediate.
We expect the milk production to be 12 litres daily. One litre is sold at kes 100. So in a month we expect an income of kes 36,000.
