About Me

My name is Morris Gathomi Githinji I was born in 1963 at thaita location ndia, Kirinyaga County I joined kiamutugu primary school and later kirinyaga boys high school for my o levels. After school I joined kerugoya polytechnic for a course in agriculture. From there I worked with various government institutions until 2003. With my savings, I bought a piece of land at Marewa River in the outskirts of Gilgil town where I carry out commercial farming activities up to date. I am married and blessed with 4 children who are all out the nest. i look forward to be a zidisha member.

My Business

My daily business is farming. I own a piece of land at the banks of liver marewa which is in the outskirts of Gilgil town. I grow green vegetables, maize, beans, castor seeds, etc apart from growing crops I also keep dairy cattle’s which I currently have 10 heads that produces milk which i sell and for my own domestic consumption. I deal with this kind of farming when I realized there is great demand of these commodities in the nearby town of Gilgil and beyond. I sell my crops at farm gate price to retailers from Gilgil and Nairobi. For the milk I sell to Brookside dairies who normally correct it outside my farm every morning I receive the payments at the end of the month I usually get ksh 45000 after deducting my overheads I am left with ksh 25000. Buyers prefer my farm produce because they are of high quality since I have been doing this for the rest of my life; I have enough skills to produce the same. the only challenge I face is luck a modern spraying machine for crop spraying my produce when growing in the farm. Also luck of a deep freezer to preserve my milk before buyers arrive to collect it. With zidisha platform I will be able to overcome this challenge and hence improve my living standard
