I was born in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, but we relocated to upcountry while I was still a kid. Growing up in the rural area forms the bulk of my history including my early school life. I vividly recall experience in public school and it wasn't easy.
Encouragements and guidance from my parents helped me pass my exams in primary and high school despite numerous challenges. Eventually, I joined the university to pursue a applied statistics with computing degree.
While I am a graduate, my ambition is to venture into agriculture and create employment. Over the years I have tried my hand in farming with ups and downs. Although the journey is challenging it is not without lessons. I believe in the near future everything will fall into place and the rewards will be worth the efforts.
As mentioned, I plan to start projects that can help me growth financial.
I am passionate about horticulture and vegetable farming. I have severally reaped a handsome income from farming activities. My plan is to boost my farming venture.
Eventually, I hope to do farming in greenhouses. I want to start small and hence I require some cash to add to my savings to realize my dreams. I am appealing to lenders to consider funding this endeavour.
Farming is the backbone of our country's economy. It is because of this reason that there has been more emphasis on young people to venture into this simple and yet lucrative industry. However, start-up resources still remain the main challenge. As for myself, I did not get deterred by this fact from pursuing my dream of being successful in agribusiness. I, therefore, started with small amount had saved and with the help of zidisha, I was able to borrow some money which I added to the savings.I planted some time back, and with the help of money I got here at zidisha I bought seeds and fertilizer. However, the plants need additional or top up fertilizer. I, therefore, would like to request some funding to purchase the fertilizer so that I can actually realize a good harvest. Thank you.
