About Me

I am 36 yrs old tech enthusiast, married with two kids. I have a degree in Information Technology and work full time in a computer shop in the bustling city of Nairobi in central Kenya. As you can imagine there are very few green spaces. I am have passion for nature and animals. I try to spend as much time as I can in the country and generally appreciate a farming lifestyle and value of hard work with one's own hands.

My Business

In my spare time, I try to do a little farming here and there. I also have ambitions for livestock rearing. For this year I have ambitions to rear traditional chicken which are hardy and resistance to disease. I have recently acquired a small piece of land in the outskirts of Nairobi for this project. I have ambitions to develop it for a chicken rearing project - put up a structure and sink a well for water. Since my project location is quite close to the city, market should not be problem once i go live.

Project Proposal

The Kenyan government is currently offering last mile electricity connnection a an affordable rate under a project dubbed " Last Mile Connectivity Program (LMCP):. This make it more afforable to get electricity connection upfront and pay over a period with each subequent prepaid electricty token connection. I will use the proceed of the loan to purchase a meter box and set up the requisite infrastructure to allow connectivity to my plot of land
