About Me

Irene is a fourth born girl of the late mr.&Mrs Nguu from GATUNDU south constituency,kiambu county,Kenya, in a village known as mundoro.I went in a primary school in my village and later joined mugoiri girls high school in muranga county.After my o level I started working in highland hotel in Nairobi as a waitress and later to a cashier till the year 2020 when the country was hit by the covid 19 epidermic .This is the time I left my job at highland hotel after it closed down.I later went home and bought three heifers from the saving I had.Am now a dailyfarmer qualified by the experience.

My Business

Am a dairy Farmer who is milking 50 litres of milk.This is an increase of about 20 litres of milk after I got my first loan from Zidisha and purchased farmfeeds and supplements.I sell my milk to a company called brookside dairies whereby one litreof milk cost 35kshs.Thus I manage to pocket about 1000kshs perday this being gross profit.Literary here the milk is never enough.This is because the villagers also searches for this product alot.This is why am thinking of expanding this business inorder to serve more people.

Project Proposal

With this loan,am planning to add more farmfeeds to my cows so that the rise of milk production continues.Also I will add some supplements to give them,like cottonseed,fishmeal,etc so as to boost their health for more production.Moreover I have to include licking bricks and salts for their health upkeep.

    Thanks my lenders for the past loan you funded.It helped alot by purchasing farmfeeds and supplements for my dairy cows.By that they added their production from 30 litres per day upto 50 litres per day.This is as a result of Zidisha loan.thanks again.

    These are not only cows but they are money makers.Each produces about 15litres of milk.What am sure of is that with Zidisha they will Zidisha that amount to about more than 20litres per day.

    Once my loan is successful,am going to roof the cowshed so as to protect them from the rain season expected in october.heavy rains and wind makes these precious animals to reduce yield and hence less profit.I will also provide them matresses so that they sleep comfortably.As shown in the photo below,they are currently sleeping on a wooden structure, which am aware that they are not comfortable with.
