About Me

Am Lawrence Ouma a business man a Kenyan as well an agriculturalist venturing in mainly crop production and business though still in small scale due to poor financial support but it has a great future in raising the production to a dream limit and am looking forward to moving together to move together with you for the achievent both in agriculture and business.

My Business

My business rotates around livestock production and marketing as well as crop productions and marketing that are mostly produced within but with limited customers due to low exposure to the new products from livestock and crop products especially during this pandemic period

Loan Proposal

Am a businessman with my business revolving around supply of farm products to local farmers at an affordable price and small units that can not be gotten in the large agrovets. Secondly, I also do plenty of charcoal supply in bulks where when the business is at peak especially during the rainy seasons the profits exceed a hundred percent,whereby one sack gotten at six hundred Kenya shillings then sold out at one thousand five hundred Kenya shillings.

Income Source

My business is not a starting business therefore it has already built market therefore the work is meeting their demands. Then most of the operations like ordering I have availed them online where you order then I deliver so the business is in good terms and touch with the customers and can be considered like stable and extra expenses can't easily destabilize it.

    Poor health hence poor business management therefore there is chance of paying small instalments to sustain the business as well

      Please contact the Director using the HELP link in your account.
      She is the only one who can help with that. From your HELP link,
      you would need to create a private "Payment not posted" support ticket to send to her.

      Best wishes, and please stay safe. :)
