About Me

I was born in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, but we relocated to upcountry while I was still a kid. Growing up in the rural area forms the bulk of my history including my early school life. I vividly recall experience in public school and it wasn't easy.

Encouragements and guidance from my parents helped me pass my exams in primary and high school despite numerous challenges. Eventually, I joined the university to pursue a applied statistics with computing degree.

While I am a graduate, my ambition is to venture into agriculture and create employment. Over the years I have tried my hand in farming with ups and downs. Although the journey is challenging it is not without lessons. I believe in the near future everything will fall into place and the rewards will be worth the efforts.

My Business

As mentioned, I plan to start projects that can help me growth financial.

I am passionate about horticulture and vegetable farming. I have severally reaped a handsome income from farming activities. My plan is to boost my farming venture.

Eventually, I hope to do farming in greenhouses. I want to start small and hence I require some cash to add to my savings to realize my dreams. I am appealing to lenders to consider funding this endeavour.

Loan Proposal

First and foremost is to thank you for your continued support my lenders. God bless you. I am applying for this loan in preparedness for the dry season which we experience in January in my region. Actually, I am a small scale vegetable farmer and I must admit that the investment is worth every coin. In fact due to the hot and sunny weather at the beginning of every year, there is always scarcity of vegetables which increases Demand. I have been doing fairly well in farming as far as return on investment is concerned. I am very certain that with hard work I will reap good harvest which will actually be in demand. However I am not in a position to buy a pump due to cost. It's my hope that you will fund my loan so that I can actualize this dream. I will use all the money to purchase the pump and accompliances. Thank you.
