About Me

I have been born and raised up in a humble ground,a nuclear family of 6 dad,mum nd my 3brothers , i went to nearby primary school by the name kenyatta university primary school later class of 2004 and laterjoined mumbi high school class 0f 2007 later i joined kenya insitute of management wea i am to date, i got employed in 2010 whereby i decidedto start up a small bussiness of farming this i what keeps me going though with so much challanges in terms of capital and financing the business,the most unique thing about where i live is that people are mostly into farming to be specific they rare broilers.when am ready to settle as a wife i would like to have 3 children God willingly ,my hobby is simply travellin i would travel over and over again without tiring.

My Business

My business entails simply raring chicks to be specific day old chicks which i usually buy from ken chic i usually buy them as young as day old and take care of them accordingly untill the sale time.this is the most and one of the core business that one would ever have because mostly in nairobi people can not do without having thembecause in every hotel in town they must sell kuku and more so deep fried ones with chips.the reasons as to why i choose this business is because i found it amazing that my parents were able to bring us up comfortably using the income from the business.the typical cost incurred in these business is buying of feeds since they are usually very expensive and the revenues are incurred mostly when you are transporting them to town and you are caught by the city council reason being that you are nottransporting them accordingly.i use my profits to pay for my school fees and cater for my basic needs but mostly i would like to grow my business by expanding and also buying a car for doing the businessin and and out of town with much ease.inwould also like to buy a piece of land as future investment for i and my family to be.

Loan Proposal

Based on the title of my project i am a poultry farmer specifically i do chicken farming.i have a total of 700 chicks at the moment.given the loan i will be able to add an extra 300chicks which will cost me 1dollar each to buy the chick and then the cost of feeding the chicks will be covered by profits which i made earlier which was 30dolars and i will be able to split the cash and buy. The feeds accordingly.the feeds include starter mash starter crumbs and finisher pellets the feeds cost around KES 3000 per bag.this business will be able to benefit my growth since am aiming at buying a vehicle for ease of transportation of both the feeds and the chicks when they are ready for sale.to others the business will be able to help because al be able to create employment to my labourers because the work entails alot of labour al be able to employ 1labourer and pay him or her 6dolars per month for her to assist in the farm.if the business goes well as planned al be able to make an increament of around 40dollars from thw previously made 30dolars and that will total to 70dolars to the minimum thus this will enhance my growth financially and also socially for i will be able to use some cash to travel around as that is my hobby God willingly.thanks alot am hoping for a positive response.
