About Me

My name is Phibi, a mother of two - children aged 8 and 1 year old. I was born in the coast region of Kenya. I was born and bred in Taita county near the coast of Kenya. I was educated up to secondary level and then went to the city of Mombasa for college education.

While in Mombasa, I did a course in hospitality and computerized secretary. I later got a job in a transport firm and I worked there until 2010 when I quit to start livestock farming. I decided to quit my formal employment to break the monotony of doing routine work day in out.

I am a hard working woman with a sharp focus of raising my kids well by providing them with quality education as well as securing their future.

My Business

I started livestock business some five years ago. I do this activity on my acre piece of land which I bought with my savings when I was employed. I started this activity since I realized there was a need to supply fresh milk to my neighbors who used to rely on processed milk which is expensive and treated with preserving chemicals.

I have managed to increase my herd of cows to 4 heads and they produce milk which fetch around $650 per month. The monthly expenses go up to around $350 thus leaving me with a profit of $300. I use this money for my supporting my family.

Loan Proposal

Earlier this year, I started a poultry project. I first experimented with 50 birds then through Zidisha support increased this amount to 200. I now want to dive deeper and increase the number to 500.

This way, I will be able to supply chicken to my ever increasing number of buyers. I will spend USD 320 to buy 300 chicks. I will then buy chicken feed which will last me a couple of weeks.

I take this opportunity to thank you once more for your generosity and support.
