My name is Valentine Omogi, I am teacher by profession. I went to Butula primary school and later proceeded to Butula secondary school ,then went to Kagumu teachers college were I graduated with diploma in Agricultural Education and Extension.
After leaving college I did not get a job immediately. I searched for a job for several months, but since I had bills to take care of I had to find ways of sorting them out. I started planting kale in small scale,but since I had no water ,i did rain fed agriculture and suffered huge loses due to market floods. As i was still thinking of the next move, a solution come by, i decided to get a tank for water storage. I could store up to 10000 liters for use during dry season and it paid off.That is when i started doing commercial farming.
I have triplets kids who are in the university studying Economics, I love them all and wish them well in life.
I am a basketball player and so doing my free time ,I play basketball. what I like most. I also love socializing and making new friends.
I am involved in horticulture farming and mainly grow kale's in my farm. I sale kales to schools and local markets.
Kales are liked and consumed by most people in my area and that explains why the demand is high always.
I choose this business because it is profitable and also had a lot of knowledge about it.
My costs in a month are $100 and my revenues are $350 in a month. I use my profits to pay fees for my children ,I also pay fees for my orphaned nephew who is in secondary school.
Dear lenders once again thank you for your good heart,incredible kindness and passion to improve other peoples lives. I am requesting for a third loan to build a temporary green house to produce tomatoes.Tomatoes are very marketable but people seldom produce it due to harsh weather. I will construct a green house using timber at cost of $700. I have $300 saving for the same and would use the loan to top up. These green house will increase my income significantly and would also help the community since I will use it as a demonstration unit. thank you
