About Me

My name is Geoffrey Mwaniki, I reside in Nairobi County, Embakasi District, Fedha Estate. I was born in Machakos County, Kathiani Division, Kaani Sub Location. It is 12km from Machakos Town to Kaani town. And approximately 400 meters off Machakos Kitui road. There is a school next to my farm called St Catherine Girls High School. I am married to Edith Baru and we have been blessed with a baby boy called Nathanael Mwaniki.He is now 4 and half years. I have been farming for the last 6 years. What started as a passion has now grown to be an established business thanks to Zidisha loans which has helped me to grow my farming business.

My Business

I am in agribusiness where I practice mixed farming. I have a Green house where I grow tomatoes and capsicums. I am also in poultry where I have 200 indigenous birds. I also have cattle and have also planted pawpaws and mangoes. I have experienced tremendous growth over the last 2 years that I have been in the business. For example, I started with 5 she goats and 1 he goat and now I have over 20 goats. In the area of Poultry, I have been able to construct a house which can hold over 2,000 birds from proceeds from the farm which am planning to stock as soon as possible. I have been also able to plant over 1,000 pawpaw trees which will mature in the next 1 year. Already I have around 100 mature pawpaw trees which I sell the fruits to my customers in Nairobi.The climate condition in our area is very good for fruits which many customers prefer them because of the sweetness.
