Kitonyini Village, Kenya
94 installments • 66%
I am a pastor in one of the dry areas of machakos district kenya. I am the 8th born of a family of 10. During my primary education, I had to drop from school to go and work as a herds boy for three years before going back to school. I grew up in abject poverty that is why I like empowering young people.
As a pastor I like teaching young people life skills and identifying their potential.
I also registired a business firm on investiments.
As a pastor and a teacher, I get some allowances from the pastoral ministry as well as from teaching. Besides this, I have some investments through my business firm where I have a farm for growing some crops for sale. I use what I get for educating my children as well as meeting the basic needs of my family. I have noted that there is a high demand of indigenous chicken and so I felt I can venture into poultry and help the youths in the church to establish some income. I would like also to diversify my project to include dairy keeping due to high demand for milk.
I intent to increase the number of birds that I have and put cement on the floor of the house where I have kept them. I have started with the first loan in a small way but I have a vision to grow it to a big project that will benefit many.
