About Me

Am from a family of six , thats the parents and four siblings and am the third born.have gone through primary ,secondary and college education of which am currently at college doing a course in medicine.
Life has not been easy coz i lost my parent when i was in class eight. things havent been easy since then but by the grace of God i have reached where i am by help of my sister who is actually married 3 years ago. I have been doing manual jobs such as in construction sites ,maintaining sanitation in private school and homes in order to rise money for my keep-ups and some few coins to start my project which is actually two years old which i love very much.i live in a region where there is illiteracy n actually reluctance in schooling,though they are hard working .
Am single looking forward to marry some years to come after my schooling of which am planing to do a degree course after here.at my free time i play basket ball and swimming

My Business

Am a poultry farmer where i produce eggs and local (kienyeji) breeds for meat. There is high demand for the products due to frequent visitors in this region fro other part of the country and foreign countries .
The business does not require big piece of land with a piece of 100 by 50 feet and well constructed you can rear like a thousand birds which will give a good return(profit). so far i have 300 layers and 50 local breed birds . the layers i spent 180,000 /= that's from buying the chicks rearing them till they start laying eggs, the local breed i use free range method since its less costly though i regularly give them supplement feeds which i spend two thousand every month . The 300 layers give me a profit of ksh 15000/= while the locals i get at-least two thousand as a profit.I spend the profit in paying school fee 6000/= , 3000 reinvestiment and the rest for my monthly upkeeps

Loan Proposal

on getting the loan am planning to buy some chicks 100 of them which will cost me ten thousand since each one day old cost a hundred shillings. the remaining amount I will buy feeds ,though I will have deficit in terms of finance the previously funded project will support me so much since I have extra feeding and drinking equipments ,extra room and the production fro other birds will manage to rear the new lot .am humbled to have you zidisha as a supportive friend.
