I had been a temporal ICT-Tutor for 5 years and resolved to change to Poultry farming because i wanted financial freedom and i also wanted to be near my family. I'm married to one wife with four lovely kids.Being the chief bread winner i use my earnings to cater for my family needs.I also offset a few expenses here and there that come my way in my business.I actually started small with incubation services and i thank God my real work at home job that started from humble beginning has opened doors to other poultry related money making activities.i.e I currently mould innovation clay brooding jikos which are very economical and cost effective and have actually gained very strong popularity in kenya since i'm the sole manufacturer.My hobbies include travelling,Browsing and to be specific i'm a social media enthusiast if i may say.During my free time can spend time researching on new openings on the internet where i can market my products.I also don't hesitate to look for free on-line courses on entrepreneurship so as to match this digital era.
My poultry farming business is my own work at home job and can proudly say i meet very minimal expenses since i operate from my own premises.The sale of chicks and Innovation brooding jikos are the main source of income.I can confidently say my brooder heater innovation ,good repute are some of the key factors as to why more and more farmers are buying my products.I have also been doing personalised trainings on poultry keeping and this has also worked miracles.I would request for USD 450 loan since i would wish to buy a back up generator.A good and successful hatch requires a serious farmer like me to have a backup generator so that it can pick-up when there is power outage.Something that is very common here especially during this cold season.I have had hatchability rate of about 65% without the generator and i believe if granted the loan to purchase the incubator will increase the hatch rate to 85% or more.
If granted the loan i would wish to buy a Skygo Motorbike-150.
I have a very big challenge accesing farmers who are quite a distance from my location.The nature of my poultry business makes me operate from the countryside where means of transport is not very easy.Sometimes due to wealth of knowledge from my experience i tend to offer consultancy services on poultry farming.
Sometimes i may have a farmer who is really pressed with sick chicken,in this case it requires me to have fast and reliable means of transport to Cris cross and attend them fast before worse goes to worst!Delivery of my clay innovation products is also going to be very easy and economical.
