About Me

ABOUT ME
Am Isaack Okeyo Ochola, Am 58 Years Old Am a Kenyan, born in Upper Nyakach Division in Kisumu County, I have been pastor for the last twenty years. For the last 15 years I have been working in Langas slum village, Pioneer Location , Uasin Gishu County,where I run a church among very poor slum dwellers.Having seen the desperate situation in which many family live, I was moved with lot s of compassion towards the many Orphans and vulnerable children who could not afford going to school due to extreme poverty and lack of school uniform and food. It is on this platform that I came up with Christian Hope community based Organization to address the desperate need in the slums children. For the last 10 years we have been supporting 30 orphans and vulnerable children.
To support this endeavor, we have been getting support from the Church well-wishers and from the community. Due to high demand of our support,I had to come up with a Green House project.So far we have established one of such green house.Since we are planning to double the intake for such needy children. We would therefore wish to construct at least three Green Houses before the end of 2015.This will help us raise enough resources to support these needy children, instead of depending on external funding and support which are a bit challenging to get currently. Due to the unpredictable weather pattern, there are season when tomatoes and green vegetable are very scarce and the demand becomes very high and the prices are so good.
Green house is currently becoming the only best option for food security especially in boosting horticultural production. We are also using this project for the purpose of training the older youths from the slum to be future users of this technology.
With the availability of ready market this projects is so viable due to the ever increasing urban population in Eldoret and other urban centers around.
We would wish to usher many into this project and also to market Zidisha micro loan to expand its domain, not only in Eldoret but also in other parts of Western Kenya where I have other Church branches.

My Business

GREEN HOUSE PROJECT FOR TOMATOES PRODUCTION:-
This project program is geared towards offering support to Orphans and Vulnerable Children leaving in Langas Slums. This is part of our community support program which have been running for the last 10 years. We have been fully depending on donation from Church and other donation from well-wishers from around the project area.
To enhance long term support program we have started a greenhouse project to boost income towards this program.
With the help of Zidisha loan we will be able to expand this project by constructing another green House.
The cost of a complete green house is K.shs 150,000.This is the cost of constructing a complete Green House measuring (60 X 8 Mtres)
Which breakdown is as follows:-
1. Posts, Polls and Truces (lamb some) @Ksh.25, 000 =US $ 250.
2. 100Kgs of greenhouse Sheet @ 200 per/kg =Ksh20,000 =US$ 200
3. Tomatoes seed ( one Packet ) @ 5000 Each=K.sh5,000 =US$ 50
4. Labor = Ksh20, 000 =US$ 200
5. Drips (Lamp some) @ K.Shs.6000 =US$ 60
6. 1500 Water Tank @Kshs. 14,000 =US$ 140
7. Water Pump @ K.shs 25,000 = US$ 250
8. Technical support @ 10000 Per monthx3 months=30000 =US$ 300
9. Contingencies @ K.Shs5,000 =US$ 100
SUB-TOTAL K.SHS.150,000 = US$.1500
We shall be able to produce approximately Kshs.5000 Kgs of tomatoes from our 1st Green House harvest which shall be sold @ Kshs 50 per kg which is equals to 250,000 which is approx.US$ 2500.
We shall then put back K.shs 145,000 into the new Greenhouse while the rest will go toward our Support program for Orphans and to repay our 1st loan. With the expected , Kshs, 5000 from 1st Zidisha loan, we will be able to raise the entire capital needed to construct a new Green House.
