About Me

I am 38 years of age married with 7 children. 3 girls and 4 boys. I reached form four in education. I live in Kiplobe farm in Lenginet location Rongai division Rongai district Nakuru county. After my secondary education I decided to venture into a tree business in order to cater for my daily living and able to provide to my family.

My Business

Because of our group of bee keeping I saw it better to start a tree nursery because the members were encouraged to plant trees and I took that chance of selling the trees to them. Nowadays I am selling to people from my division and I am very of this business of which dont like it because it has a lot of work. I normally sell each tree at 15 kshs and I can sell up to 100 tees daily. an average of 1500kshs daily. The only risk of this business is during the dry season .
The business is now doing well despite the challenges.

Loan Proposal

For the past two loans I have been using it to expand my tree nursery business which has been doing very well. This third loan will enable me to have more seedlings in various locations where each and every person in the community can access easily. I still need to increase types of trees according to the people's choice. Since the business is doing well I do plan to include some of flowers which people are getting concern about them. By planting these flowers and trees seedlings I am sure that I will reach to many and bring beauty to the community.

    this rating has to be very positive as i see that you repaid your loan in full way, way ahead of time! congratulations on your achievement. i originally invested in this because i liked the idea of a tree nursery. it really makes sense and a the same time i think it is not a very common undertaking in africa which makes it just the more valuable. i like that you choose this area of self-employment. wishing you all the best for your future!
