About Me

I come from Kericho County which is well known for tea production as the main source of income to its residents. To arrive to my home, from Kericho town you board a viechle heading towards sotik and alight 10 kms later at a market called Kapsuser and from there take a motorbike heading to Kipsolu and alight at Chepkoton junction near Kapchebwaber AGC. My home is 150 meters to the right from the junction.
I went to Kapsuser Primary and later joined Chepseon High School for high studies after which I joined Highlands College for a Diploma in Information Technology but due to lack of job opportunities I decided to venture into agribusiness and due to a good understanding in tea sector I decided to do tea farming.

My Business

I am mostly earning my income through tea farming which i get paid every month based on the total of kilograms delivered to the processing factory at the end of every month. I also earn through a motorcycle business which gives me Kshs 21,600 every month. I use some amount from the motorcycles in servicing them every month to ensure its excellent functionality. I have also started rearing poultry chicken though i still have to support it since it is still young, i currently have 30 mature chicken whereby 17 chicken are already lying eggs which i see at the nearby restaurants and i use the amount raised from the eggs in buying them feeds.

Loan Proposal

I will expand my poultry farming so as to be self driven and one day enable me expand to other money making opportunities. I will use the money to buy materials to construct a proper housing catchment for the chicken so as to allow me live in good relations with the neighborhood and also to protect them from predators.
