About Me

I was born in western part of Kenya kidoli village in vihiga constituency north maragoli, I am married to Mary and we have two children one boy and a girl, my family was not financially well up, we had one round hut house which we all shared a family 8 members, school life for us was a struggle for my brothers and sisters, I remember one time my parents offered themselves to be the cleaners at the school so that there services could be traded for our fess, but the school thought they were making looses, so they were stopped and we missed school for more than two years, but eventually the African Divine Church came and took us to school but my parents had to find a way to buy books, pens shoes and uniform which was still out of reach, so this lead to me and my brothers going to work in farms and looking after our neighbors cattle’s. Over the years we did this and this got us through very tough times, we thank God for his Mercies that we rarely got sick.

My Business

My business is in the food retail, I retail sukuma wiki , cabbages, dhania, tomatoes and onions I buy them at a whole sale price and them I bring them to my kiosk which is situated along hinga road I pack them into small packages for the small people who live in the slum of kangemi , I prepare them and cut the vegetables for my clients so that when they buy them all they do is to go home wash them, and cook, and this is an extra service that attracts my clients, I am happy that I can send my children to school and at least live a in a house which is a modest house also I am able to pay the fess for my children pay rent and take care of other expenses. Very happy to be able to meet my responsibility via my business.

    Sorry, money should have been there in the late 2019.
    So that is so sad, my money went in the wrong place.
