My name is Martin Mugambi mwenda, an entrepreneur and an agricultural economist who is into data processing and analysis business. My background at Egerton university created a desire to analyse data and try to project it into the future. Despite my big desire to analyse data, Monitoring and Evaluation is my other interest. I always carry the desire to examine and evaluate performance, then guide future performance to achieve the intended goals.
As stated earlier my business is essentially in data collection, processing, analysis and reporting. My company utilises the latest data analysis softwares and is gradually growing in terms of turn over and staff. The company intends to in future diversify into making surveys and monitoring & evaluation consultancies. Data analysis especially in Africa is a grey area that has not been fully exploited, given that this data can be very much useful to project future trends. Currently the business has 8 employees most of whom were there at inception. Emphasis is majorly put at training our staff on the latest data analysis packages and we also ensure that an annual training needs assessment guides us on this aspect. Our business demand has always been on an upward trajectory courtesy of just some little marketing. We expect that as we release more resources to our marketing efforts, our revenues will triple.
The initial data analysis project has grown to a level of agricultural farm management services, provision of farm inputs, agri-projects evaluation, and climate-smart agriculture. Kilimo Kenya intends to create a website, market its farm management services, provision of farm inputs in Kenya and later to other countries, agri projects performance evaluation as well as promote climate-smart farming. The operations will initially start with a staffing level of 8 people and based in Ongata Rongai town in Kajiado county. This is expected to spread to other agricultural towns of Eldoret, Nandi, Bungoma, Nyeri, Meru, and Embu counties. Later the company will develop an android-friendly application that will accept online service requests and payments.
