About Me

I am married and father of 5 children, my wife and we are from the local community of Tiriki in western part of Kenya, during my childhood i was raised like a warrior, my job was to take care of my father's cows, go fetch firewood in the forest, and perform any other duty that was assign to me, Education was not a priority in my family, i went to school but it was because the rest of the community was going to school,My business came about the experience that i had in farming, i knew all about farming from growing crops, rearing poultry or castles i grew up doing this and this is how i ended up in the farming arena. my culture is still preserved and we are still finding ways to blend modernizations and some traditions that support the current century.

My Business

My business involves growing a variety of vegetables for the local market i had to practice what is is demand and what can move with much strain, i have ventured in growing cabbages, sukuma wiki, dhania, kunde, managu, yarns, if i sell my vegetables in whole sell depending on the supply i make a great return, if i sell them in retail i takes long and the profit margins are less than the whole style of selling.The profits go to Educating my children i dont want them to be warriors like i was, i pay my house rent, and take care of all the bills from this.

Loan Proposal

I want to use the money to buy an asset to add to my businesss i want to use the loan to buy a pesticide pump, the one that i have is old and it has mechanical problems it takes me and works hours to just spray an 1/8th piece of plantation, with this new sprayer it will save time thus enabling us to do other things, the pesticide pump will cost 65.33 dollars.With an good sprayer i will be able to get a good harvest that will increase my profits, thus enabling me to pay my children's fess and take care of all the bills.
