About Me

I was born and brought up in a village near Karatina town (Nyeri) on the foot of Mt Kenya. I am the first born in a family of six; my parents being farmers in the area. I fought through financial strains in my education; emerging as the best student from a public school our division in the 2013 KCPE.

I graduated with a BSc in Environmental & Biosystems Engineering from the University of Nairobi.

My Business

I currently do part time jobs and my vision is to secure myself permanent job and then I will be saving to start a long term investment in agribusiness. I am particularly interested in horticulture (capcicum, French beans, Strawberries or apples).
I will maintain a clean and excellent Zidisha record, invite my friends to this wonderful community and at the same time grow my loan limit up the ranks.

Loan Proposal

I intend to use the funding I will get from Zidisha to extend my capsicum farming project and also till more land for next season. I am expecting to have my first harvest around June and then supply to university students and small supermarkets around my home area. I will be very grateful for any assistance offered.
