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

I have been undertaking a greenhouse project. Through the fund assistance from Zidisha, I have been able to put up a greenhouse. The funds I will get in Zidisha and my saving I will go to purchasing tomatoes seeds and preparation of the seedbeds. The projected profit will be used in the expansion of my farming project. In addition, it will be pivotal in the growth of my financial stability. It is my hope to get lenders who will help me actualize my dreams. Thank you.
