About Me

My name is Charles wahome, am 30 years old, a father of one child. I was born and raised in Gatundia village in Rimuruti district Laikipia county Kenya.I schooled in Lorematesho primary school then went to Ngumo secondary. After completing my high school I started working as a casual labourer in a nearby maize farm. Through the little payment I got, I managed to save some money which i used it to rent a small shamba which i started planting maize for sale which am doing up to date. I have always wanted to rent a big land but due to my financial limitations this become difficult.I usually visit children from less fortunate

My Business

In my piece of land i grow maize, cabbage, local vegetables which after harvesting I sell my locals because they are always on high demand. I chose this business because my father brought us up with the same and i would see how profitable it was. After selling the farm produce i get my profit which I use for my family upkeep and also pay school school fees for my child, also i invest some for my future children education. I will appreciate if you can lend me money to expand my farming business. Thank you.

Loan Proposal

Its ploughing season followed by planting whereas maize seed are required and labourers. Most of labourers will be my neighbours who will benefit. For the vegetables i will sell them localy. My target is to increase my profit by more than 40% . I will be grateful if you lend me so as to fulfill my dreams and help my family live a better life. Regards
