About Me

I was born in Busia county , I went to ukwala primary school and joined ukwala secondary school, i then joined KMTC for a coarse in clinical ,however i was not able to complete due to lack of money,my desire and hope is that one day, I raise enough money for my education.
after dropping out of college I went back home, my parents were really pitiful but could nothing because they had no money to support me. I knew i had to do something before it was too late ,and so started farming. Though I am still new it looks promising.
I am a basketball player and love watching basketball and soccer,during my free time.

My Business

I grow tomatoes in my farm,and so my business provides high quality tomatoes to my clients. I sale my tomatoes to neighbors and local market.
Tomatoes are essential vegetables that anyone can afford,most people fear growing it because of lack of knowledge on how to go about the diseases.
I choose this business it was the most profitable business i could manage with my meager resources.
My costs are $100 in a month and my revenues are $300 in a month depending with the season.
I use money to save for my school fees ,invest back to business and take care of our family.
