My name is Shadrack, reside in Rongai, Nakuru. I am married with two children. Currently I am employed as a civil servant in Nakuru County.
Despite being employed, I noticed that I could not meet all my rising needs thus I decided to engage in Dairy farming and more so though difficult I bought 2 plots. My main target is to start building rental rooms and I have started by buying materials i.e. stones worth US 1,041 from my savings. God willing I intend to start this work before the end of this year, of which after completing I am sure to reap good money.
As indicated in my story, I engage in dairy farming which earns me some income which caters for some needs and bills e.g water and electricity. I also do some farming for my home consumption.
My anticipated rental rooms which are on a prime area i.e. Nakuru-Eldoret high way will give me enough income to cater for my children’s' school fees and to expand this business by buying other plots for the same.
To rent one room costs Ksh. US.23 x 10 rooms = 230 per month for 1 plot. Therefore If I finish the two plots building it will earn me US. 463 per month. Of course this is good money even to repay my loan and have extras.
The challenge to this project is now the money to buy cement and for the mason.
Before I finish these rooms I will use my salary to repay my loan.
As stated earlier, I will replant my hay grass on my 5 acres of land after the drought hit my country since late last year.
I look forward to cultivating and making my shamba a more productive than before.
