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.
In order to increase our income, the school is planning to establish a dairy farming project. Our target is to purchase three female grade cows for milk production. This will be accomplished in 3 phases. Through Zidisha family, we have purchased the 1st cow and we are in the process of buying the second cow. The first cow will give birth around December 2024.
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.
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.

Project Proposal

The school intends to purchase the second female cow at an estimated cost of kes 70,000. We plan to have three female cows for milk production. The demand for milk from the community is high.
The loan will be repaid with money from our school bakery and maize farming projects since the milk production will not be immediate.
