About Me

Hello, am Pacifica matoke, am 52 years old I reside in Kisii County. Am a house wife who mostly handles household chores but as part of earning extra income I managed a farm where I have planted bananas that I harvest twice per a month.
am blessed with two sons and the most money I generate from the farm helps to pay for their education.

My Business

My work mostly is with the my compound, as part of Making myself useful I started to plant bananas in the year 2013, at the moment I harvest bananas twice a month then sell them at a wholesale price to guys who take them to the city to sell.
I harvest 20 bananas per a harvest, then I sell at a wholesale price of KES 250 so in a harvest I make KES 5000, in a month I make at least KES 10000 from the bananas.
I use KES 100 to weed the farm and the rest I use it to for my sons' school fees and other expenses at home.

Loan Proposal

I used my previous loan to buy poles to support my banana trees but I wasn't able to cover the whole farm, with a loan of 3 dollars I will be able to buy 6 poles that can be split into two, this will be able to over support to 12 banana trees this will help me minimise loss when the banana fall before maturity. I'll will be able to maximize my income because I will be able to harvest more banana.
Thanks for this wonderful opportunity and I hope you will consider my loan application. May God bless you.
