About Me

I am Evans Kiprono Too a 25 year old male nicknamed Ndugu a Kenyan citizen from Kericho county Ainamoi subcounty Kapsoit ward Kenegut location Kenegut sub location Kiboybei village. Born in a family of 5 children,1 sister and 4 brothers I included. My mother is a farmer she owns some few acres of tea ,maize and sugarcane this is her source of income ,her farm work has helped us in our education. She taught us how to farm which encouraged me to start planting tree seedlings. Currently i have about 1500 seedlings and i have planted 2000 trees.I went to my primary level at my village but transferred to a private school within my ward where i completed my primary level. I joined Kabianga high school in 2009 up to 2012 where i completed and joined Portreitz KMTC taking a diploma course in clinical medicine and surgery .I graduated in the year 2016 and went to Narok referral hospital for my internship for 1 year. After a year of my internship i was employed by Shepherds medical centre Lodwar branch where i am currently working.

My Business

Planting trees and conserving environment is my passion and my favorite business. I started planting trees seedlings in the year 2019.I began with 200 seedlings which i planted all. Many people were interested with trees i planted this motivated me to plant more and venture into business .I sold each seedling at 10 shillings depending on the type of a tree, it is an interesting kind of a business. I also started the idea of planting flowers which many people are so interested in and need them in their compound. I sold each flower at 7 shillings .

Project Proposal

I want to prepare a big nursery bed for planting more tree seedlings and flowers. I will also use some money to buy seedlings and the rest for human labor. This seedbed will boost my project and I will be expecting a double sells of seedlings from the previous one. I use my previous earnings to supply water by piping to the nearby farm. I thank you all and am asking for your support of my project.
