About Me

I come from the Rift Valley province, Laikipia county here in Kenya. I finished my form four in 2004 and joined a public university in 2006-2010. And am now freshly training for a job in building services and design. I earn a steady income of Ksh 30000 per month gross pay. Minus rent, bus fare and other expenditures this does not amount to much as well as for the future ahead.

My Business

During school breaks and holidays I used to utilise my parents 2 acres of land by planting a perimeter of cypress trees. Now they are quite big and I was able to push my parents to put a side a 1/4 acre part which I filled with the trees. I own more than 1000 tree on the farm now. Hard to calculate but with closure of government forests private forestry is very profitable plus the good benefits to our environment. I would love to buy equipments to help prune this trees during the December break. I promise to repay promptly.

Loan Proposal

My rain seasons have changed and become randomly scarce. Every homestead in our county is equipped with a "man-made" (locally and cheaply sunk). I want to make goo thee piping and electrical wiring to the pump below so that I can reduce on maintenance and contamination caused when the cover has to be removed.
We also use this well for domestic and livestock use, if I could be able to buy enough length of pipe I could lay it down to the trough supplying the service taps. I am trained in the plumbing industry and will require only the materials and local tools to provide the setup.
Am thankful to this community for slowly am growing to be important.
