My name is Naserian Mapelu. I have been blogging for close to 8 years now. Until One and a Half years ago, i have been doing it on my own, using my laptop and modem at home. My earnings come entirely from my online business mostly about article writing, data entry and transcription services. Last year in August i decided to empower stay-at-home moms and the youths by introducing them to online jobs. So far i have managed to train over 60 stay-at-home moms, most of whom have already started earning lots and lots of money, and becoming self-empowered.... Thus my source of income also comes from the regular trainings that i hold... my hobbies, i love writting, a lot, i love watching movies and i love helping the less fortunate in the society.... I am a mother to the most beautiful baby in the world... yes, am yet to find anything as cute as my butu :)
One of my other side hustles for the past one and a half years has been farming. I do farm potatoes back in the village in Narok County for commercial purposes. I currently have 7 acres of potatoes which are due harvesting in two weeks time. An acre of potatoes will cost me about $60 to lease out for a year, the seedlings to plant will cost me around $150 and labor plus tractor will cost me around $200. The good thing with potatoes is they take only 3 months in the farm, so when all else remains constant i.e. whether etc, i will have three planting seasons in a year. On average, an acre of potato will produce 50-70 bags, on the lowest side 50 bags and on the highest side sometimes up to 110 bags. A bag goes for between $30-$50 depending on the prevailing market price as well as the demand and supply of the same.
First off i want to thank all those who have been funding me in the past. I want to continue expanding my online business with more computers, more desks et al to be able to accomodate more trainees in my program in any given time. Every week i record huge success with my trainings, where some of the trainees i employ to help with my personal work on online freelancing. I hope to be able to empower the youths and stay at home moms, and hopefully create job opportunities, which i can only do with good computers, reliable internet connection and well-trained and well-polished trainees. It has happened in the past and i believe with your support it will continue to happen. Again, blessings for considering my loan application!
