I am Rose achisa aged 24 years. i am married to kenly kivailo and we have one child. i am a graduate with a diploma in business administration from Rift valley institute of science and technology year 2012. with help from my husband, i started business while i was in college whereby i rear pigs for both commercial and domestic purpose. I also sell cloths to help me increase my income and expand my business. Both businesses are doing well and with your help they will do even much better. My hobbies are watching movies and cooking which i enjoy doing at home and during family events
My business involves rearing of pigs which takes 6 months for a piglet to mature and gain good weight (45-50kgs) for sale. i currently have 22 pigs, 3 mothers and 19 piglets. i have been selling 14-18 pigs in every 6 months after birth and each pig goes for $120 hence i make $1100 profit after deducting expenses. Therefore i can approximate a monthly income of between $150-200. I also get some additional profit of $50-100 from my cloth selling business. the challenges in this venture are lack of enough capital to buy good quality food for the pigs that enhance them to gain good weight within a short period of time. With your help, i will be able to buy 5 sacks of good quality pig-meal at a cost of $12 per sack to boost pigs weight for better sales. i will also increase my stock i.e cloths for sale hence make good profit and have easy time when repaying my zidisha loan.
My second loan helped me build good shelter for my pigs,i also bought good quality food and hence gained good weight in a short period of time,i also added stock in my clothe selling business.
Majority of my customers who buy clothes ask that i incorporate shoes because i end up requesting shoes from other dealers hence the need to incorporate shoes in my clothe selling business and therefore request for your assistance in my third loan to raise 200 dollars to buy shoe stock.
I also want to buy good quality breeds of pigs that are highly reproductive and marketable.This will cost 270 dollars.
