About Me

I am Timothy Ong'ongo 26 years old.I was born in Nakuru county and raised in a family of twelve children i being third born.Life was not that good because my parent didn't have good job to boost up their life and that of there children and support them in their academic in school.I went to school in Terry Primary School where i finished and pass with flying colors unfortunately my parents could not afford to pay for my school fees.I started working on peoples farms nearby my neighbors at least to earn my living.I loved the job because i was used to it and nothing i could have done with class eight certificate.I developed a passion on the farming and the small land that i inherited from my living father i started cultivating on it.Also in future i would love to be a large scale farmer and have a grain store of y own and be a father who will his family the best and take my kids to the best schools.

My Business
