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

Poultry is one of the locreative farming to engage in. I wanna increase my birds from five hundred to one thousand in six months. I have to buy more poultry feeds, new water trough, drugs and also expand the place for more space. All of this cost money. I wanna start doing it on a gradual bases . I will be able to employ extra two people and also help others to further their education. I have being able to suport five children in school with the income i earn from the farm but wanna do more this year. At list to suport ten children in school. Thank you all in advance for the good work you guys are doing.
