About Me

I am 37 year old,Kenyan citizen. I was born in Muranga county as a last born in a family of seven children.
I am a trained software developer, having done a diploma in Software Engineering.
However, due to limited opportunities for diploma holders, i didn't land a job in my chosen profession. I am currently working in a company as a imports assistant.

I would like to enroll for a course in clearing and forwarding, to better my chances of a career in this field

My Business

I am currently working in a company as a imports assistant,
My monthly salary is USD 280.
I also engage in part time farming in my rural home in Muranga, on an inherited piece of land.
I mostly produce maize, (Corn), beans, and vegetables on a small scale, with an aim of going commercial in future.

Project Proposal

I want to start rice farming in my ancestral land. The money will be used for paying laborers, who will do the land preparation, plant, and cultivate, and irrigate
I have 1 acre of land, which will give me over Ksh 100k. from this i will be able to repay the loan.
