About Me

I am a hardworking and passionate young Kenyan. I am driven by integrity.These are values I've learnt from my mother,after I lost my dad at a tender age(I din't even get the opportunity to see him).My childhood was a bit unstable as my mom was unemployed and we had no one close enough to assist.Through donations and bursaries I was able to study and I am currently in the university.My mom got a job at a charity center,and from her savings I bought this piece of land and turned it into maize plantation.I want to purchase new is where I get my fees now.I want to create a bright future for my kids and help my mother.I love reading novels and traveling

My Business

I supply maize to retailers here in Pangani since maize is the stable food here and in demand.Farm inputs and supply cost around 15000 .I use the profit to pay my fees and to help my mom

Project Proposal

Graciously got funds for the first set of spawns from kind family members of Zidisha. It's with great humility that I wish to extend my request for the second and final set of spawns ready to do the inoculation. Help me realize my ultimate desire to explore the mushroom production niche
