I was born in a rural town in kenya called kipsitet found in rift valley province in kericho county.i spent most of my childhood observing my parents as they did farming,though at the point in time it was basically subsistence farming.and as i grow up i had that passion and thats why i turned it into a money making venture.
I m a high school accountant the moment where am mostly involved with keeping of school financial records records of all nature.am a qualified accountant and hold a diploma in accountancy from knec.
At the moment,am doing horticulture farming i.e.,tomatoes,sukuma wekii [kales], spinach as well as maize farming.ok,i farm anything which is in the season and which has the prospect of giving good returns.at fast i did not put a lot of concentration but after some time when i realised it was giving me some good money i then fully turn it into a business of which i am doing it today.
Most of the profits i get from the business i have invested back into it by expanding the size of the farm by ploughing more because my grandfather had a big portion of land which is mostly idle.i have also purchased some farm machinery for irrigation .at the moment i m saving money as i want to venture into poultry farming specifically layers as my home is few kilometers to kisumu town and 30min drive to kericho town.
so far so good i have stated it off the poultry farming,specifically now layers for eggs but i still have to expand the housing for new chicks, partition it into at least four portions and buy more chicks and its starting food.
The money i get from this loan i will top up with my small savings and buy more layers mash. the total cost of buying layers mash is estimated it around ksh 40,000.
First will use the loan funded by zidisha to purchase layers mash for my layers. The amount provided plus my small savings will be enough to purchase at least a full suck of 90kg layers mush and some vaccinations for emergency in case of any diseases.
