About Me

I am the third born in a family of three children,I went to Asenge primary school and Kolanya secondary school.I then joined kibabii technical college but did not complete my course in business administration due to lack of money.
I went back home and worked as a farm hand for a neighbor ,these is when I realized farming was also an opportunity to get rich as long as you planned well to minimize production costs and increase revenues. I worked for six months as saved to start up capital. With the experience and $200 start up capital, I decided to plant kale's in my fathers farm,the kale's did well and I have been doing kale's and bananas. I dont regret and I have now resumed my studies as evening student.
most the people from the community I come from are farmers,we grow alot of bananas here.
I am soccer fun and spend my free time watching soccer and training my local team since I am there coach.

My Business

I provide vegetables and bananas to my clients, I have 2 acres under bananas and 0.5 acres under kale's.
Due to food scarcity and ever growing population th demand for agricultural products has been growing.
I choose farming business because it was the most profitable venture to engage on.
my monthly typical costs are $200 and my monthly typical revenues are $500. I spend the money on my fees,buy basics and take care of my wife and kid.

Loan Proposal

I am glad to join zidisha family, I am requesting for a loan to enable me to buy a foot pump for irrigation and a water tank for keeping water. the foot pump would help me expand my farm by 1 acre hence increasing my market share and revenues. The foot pump would cost me $120 and the water tank would cost me $40. thank you in advance.
