About Me

Hello I'm a business woman, I started on a local grocery 30years ago and it helps me pay school fee for my five kids. I also Daily farming where I have a dairy cow, 2 goat and several chicken. More to that I have my land where I cultivate on my own. I also have a tea farm where I sell a get money every end month.

My Business

I get money from selling vegetables some from home and others bought in wholesale then I sell in retail. I also sell milk from my cow every morning and evening which is approximately 10 litres per day. 1l = 28ks currently I have a nursery seed bed which has over 15000 seedlings ready to be transplanted in 8days from now.

Loan Proposal

Helloo I will use the loan to add more chicks for layers. I also want to buy a heifer. I want also to cultivate my farm where i grow crops for selling. the amount will be highly appreciated. More to that I will vaccinate all my livestock and also buy more feeds

Income Source

The life become bad when COVID-19 was announced as a major world pandemic. Two weeks later I adapted the new way of life of which it was not as easy as you may think. I'm now somehow comfortable in selling crops at home because the buyers now come direct to my home to buy so that they can sell later
