About Me

I grew up in semiarid area of lower eastern Kenya and went to high school thereafter imy parentscouldn't afford college fees so I worked for different companoes before starting my business as my children also have the vission of being the prominent business people. My hobby being experiencing different business ideas.

My Business

Having successfully done and also doing well in the motorcycle business and the previous loan you had given me first is to thank all the zidisha crew for my success. Am now availing my submission again for i want to purchase a gasoline water pump to irrigate my farm as have a water well which has enough water to irrigate my small farm for a better farm yields as the weather is not one of the best having come from lower eastern Kenya and the rain is not reliable. With the loan I have saved 10000kshs which I will top up and buy the water pump with.
Will much appreciate allthe lenders

Loan Proposal

Am planning to buy a water tank which is 6000litres anf and the value is 410 dollarsand have already saved like 200dollsrs for the same ad am still doing motorbike business and also irrigation in the farm .so have thought of having to save direct pumping of the water to the farm by use of the water tank and doing drip irrigation which will help in low gasoline supply and also cuts the purchase value hence help in increament of interest

    Circumstances have forced me to reduce as am having my grad father hospitalised and am paying the bill and the farming. The vegetables are still small as have not started selling.

    Thanks again very much the zidisha crew and all the lending team in general for funding me with the loan. All i can see in me is step further in life. As I am sooner i get the loan head straight to buy the water pump and start directly irrigating my small farm. Hoping to get more farm produce as it will be more compared to using a bucket to pull the water from the well.all again thanks alot

    I didn't believe it when i got a message from zidisha saying have been funded and as we speak now have bought the tyres and are being fixed. Guys believe zidisha is real and is changing lives. What a great idea for the poor. Let's spread the word and make many more trustworthy clients join.blessed be to all the guys who came up with the idea and also the guys who fund the organization. Aim higher
