About Me

I,m a third born in a family of 6 boys and 4 girls. my parents practised large scale farming for many years, We had to face challenges with education money But thanks to God our First born brother whom is a rich and living in town took full responsibility of me and other siblings, He managed to support our school fees until we completed our education.
He is our role model and for sure we thank him for the very support he gave.

My father retired from farming and left some acres for me to manage and use to support my life.
After college i started maize farming, i gained grounds locally and after harvesting three times i secured potential customers whom buy maize in bulk.
My hobbies are fishing.

My Business

My business is farming, i started on one acre later got support from my brothers and moved straight to planting on a three acres maize crop, I have three dairy cows which provides 20 liters of milk ever-day. I sell the milk to a dairy farmers Sacco.
I also have been trying to raise pigs but i was disappointment with the market price which was low and made me encounter a loss.
At Least at the end of the month i can raise up to 30, 000 Kenya shillings.
I spend this money for farm maintenance and saving to a target plan of buying a second hand tractor.
