My name is Patrick.
My home town is the same as of our first and fourth presidents in the Republic of Kenya.
I am single and vegetables farmer.
I went to primary school but did not proceed with higher education due to financial constrains.
My people do subsistence farming but as for me, I had to make a living.
Without secondary education, I had to work extra hard and with my own hands earn my daily bread.
This was my passion to make my farming an income generating project.
I am a talented Keyboard player and I am actively involved in my church.
My business entails growing and selling fresh vegetables including: Onions, Spinach, Sukumawiki(Kales), corgets among others.
People love my products because they are fresh from the garden, grown with fresh water unlike many that are grown in sewer lines.
When I grew up I found this business is taking me well and I have continued to invest my time and resources in it.
My initial costs are:
>Buying a delivery cart
>Constructing a display shed
All these would cost me USD 180 until maturity.
After selling I would get a profit of USD 100 which would be after 3 months in the garden.
The profit is what I live by. Paying rent, buying new seeds, and paying my part time music class.
When given the loan, I would invest to increase my production as follows:
1. Buy Overhead Sprinkler USD 30
2. Buy variety of seeds/seedling USD 25
3. Buy Fertilizers USD 30
4. Buy pesticides USD 5
5. Connect garden to water mains USD 10
It shall be a moment of great joy to me and my clients when this loan is funded.
Thank you team.
