About Me

I am an ambitious woman.married with a beautiful baby girl.i am a nurse by profession,currently working as a nurse tutor in chogoria hospital.i grow vegetables for sale within my locality.Due to my constrained financial status,i am determined to make ends meet by expanding my farming project.i aspire to put up a green house in order to overcome the risk of pest infestation and adverse effect due to climatic changes. I am blessed with another baby and now i am a mother of two and also very ambitious when it comes to farming.
I grew up in a small village and i went to school which was quite far. i had to go through peoples farm so as to get to school on time. That is where i grew a passion for .
Later on i joined a church ran high school and finally i got sponsorship to go to a university to do nursing thus helping me full fill my dream of helping people.
When i am off duty i am ever at my farm. somehow i don't ever get bored of farming.

My Business

I grow vegetables for sale and my clientele has expanded because i sell fresh vegetables so i have recently received many referrals and am not able to meet their demands due financial constrains.given a loan,i will be able to expand my business by putting up a green house which will ensure constant supply of the vegetables hence repay the loan from the sales.i will keep updating you on the progress of the business.my initial capital was 200 dollars and now its at 325 dollars i thank all my prospective lenders in advance. Tanks to the zidisha team. with the amount granted to me last time i was able to expand my veges business through establishment of a green house. This has enabled me to buy a wonderful dairy cow which is an added resource.
Through the earlier profits i have been able to buy another dairy cow and now i wish to expand my milk business. currently i am selling to individuals but i wish to do so on a larger scale. For that purpose i will need at least 350 dollars which i may not be in a position to raise by myself. thence my appeal to the zidisha family who have always stood with me.

Loan Proposal

i am so thankful to zidisha for the help they have given me. i was able to grow and i can see i am still growing. they enabled me to put up a small green house, and through this i improved my sales. now i have a beautiful dairy cow which will be an additional source of income once it gives birth. I am appealing to the zidisha team for further support as i am intending to grow onions in a large scale on a piece land that i have leased in manyangaru. for this reason i am requesting for a loan of 285 dollars which will enable me to till the land and plant the first seedlings. it is an interesting venture as the market is big. i will really appreciate your help and will keep the team updated on the progress. God bless you all and i love you all
