About Me

Am young 24 years old a husband and a father of one daughter now 6 weeks old self motivated and self driven in achieving goals that I set up myself. Born in Nairobi in a loving family of five, one brother and two sisters. My dad pasted on while I was a kid and since then I have seen my mother struggling through to take us to school and without a doubt she did a great job being a single mother. I finish high school and took a course in mechanic after that I employed my self servicing vehicles in Nairobi city I often go at home in Limuru at our farm where I decided to help my family as a first born son. I took this initiative boldly and since then I have never regretted.

My Business

As I have mentioned my main source of income is the job that I do as a mechanic in Nairobi city. I make a proximately 117 usd after expenses I make approximately 60 usd. As this was not that sustainable I took up farming in our 2 acre farm that was left to us by our father 3 years ago I have been keeping local chicken in small scale and planting up maize. But maize was not doing that much so I decided to deal with greenhouse I wanted to plant tomatoes and capsicum. I have already build the greenhouse but still remaining with an air net. This have slowed down since I was blessed with a daughter now 6 weeks old and have been unable to complete the greenhouse. Then I was told about zidisha where dreams are made reality and I thought yes I would also wish to be part of it and see my dream come true to complete my greenhouse and be able to plant as this will help me grow not only me but my people and community at whole and also build a dream for my daughter.

Loan Proposal

Thank you very much zidisha team for my first loan it was a success for my project. Now am back for my second loan and I want to buy a cow for milking. In our farm area there is no one with a cow and I thought if I can buy a cow for milking I will be able to be selling milk to the community and also for our home farm use. I will start with one cow and by the end of next year I hope I will be having 10 cows for milking
