About Me

I was born 36 years ago in Kangari location Murang'a county. Am married to a wife and am father of two boys . I grew up in the village where my mum and my late father were small scale farmers. I got my education up to high school level. After my certificates I was not able to proceed to college because my other siblings were also in school and my mum single handedly could not afford. After high school I helped my mum in farming for two years after which I got a casual job in the capital Nairobi. The company didn't offer any unskilled personnel a parmanent job. So I decided to save for college fees. After two years I had not saved enough for the fees and I decided to venture in strawberry farming and I stopped working to concentrate on farming. I like farming, playing badminton and hanging out with kids.

My Business

I ventures into graphic design and printing which i had a lot of interests in when i was young, Kenya being a developing country needs alot of paper work and printing in general, then there are so many upcoming companies that needs advertisements inform of flyers, brochures, banners, stickers and company logs e.t.c.
From this business i pay my bills pay school fees for my children and i also make random visit to children home once a month.
I was doing farming only and this Zidisha platform helped me and i started this business from scratch which has also employed four other people.

Loan Proposal

My fish are ready for harvest, i always harvest from the farm direct to the market. Am proposing a loan to buy two deep freezers for storage to minimize the losses after harvesting. The freezer will cost me 1500 dollars, i will cover the balance from the sales i have already made. Thanks as you support me.
