About Me

To be broke and poor in life is a choice. To suffer and struggle in life is self made. I told myself I will always be a success in life. I never struggled as a person. I started very early into business. I love to farm so I was getting money from my farm produced. I started paying my fees at the senior high school and also supports some of my siblings in school also. I was into vegetable farming by then. But after my high school I didn't further my education. I went into full time farming. But some few years back I got started with the poultry farm. It has been good so far.

My Business

Poultry farming is something I started with about fifteen birds but not I have increased to five hundred birds. I have being using the income from the business to reinvest into it for it expansion. So far so good. I only keep layers so I do sell they eggs. That's my main source of income. I had some difficulty times but I believe in myself and know I can do it and now am making it. Drugs and feeds for my birds are little challenging.

Loan Proposal

I would like to thank zidisha team and my lenders for the support given to me. My first loan really helped me a lot in my business. Business was booming until I was attacked by this criminal gun men. I lost property worth about $5000. But all the same buy God's grace we will move to the level we aimed to reach. I want to buy more chicken feed for my poultry, and also get farming equipment which will help me managed my farm very well. I was expecting to raised a higher loan but due to the delayed in payment I couldn't. This current loan even not that much will help me in one way or the other. The farm equipment and the feed will cost me about $500.00, I hope my trust lender are around to support me. Thank you and God bless you
