About Me

Am the last born child of seven children and raised by a single mother after my father died when I was still very young. My mum worked hard to support the seven of us and was challenging because she was not stable, I went through hardships in my education but I thank God because of well wishers and relatives especially my uncle. Am great full to my Almighty God for his faithfulness I have six children and my last born graduated two years ago. The rest are self employed moving on with life. I started farming of dairy ,poultry but I like most is broilers which am on it even now.

My Business

I do value addition for my chicken and milk, I started after kcc rejected my milk, this challenge created an opportunity to me because I got high price for my milk because I targeted consumers and I ensured to supply very high quality of milk later I also dressed my broilers and even roasted to sell to my customers. This service raised my income which I used for paying school fees to my children which my last born graduated last year. This year am planning to improve my house by repairing my house and water tanks that I hervest roof water

Loan Proposal

I want to buy a deep freezer to enhance my storage for my perishable products which include chicken meat.
For a period of time I have encountered loses because once my chicken is dressed I am not able to properly store it so by the grace of God if I purchase a freezer my business will run well and there will be no more loses.
Expected profits will be slightly above 30%.

    I thank my lenders for the previous loan really improved my biz though I had challenges before of supply of chicks later in the past two months sells were very slow and my deep freezer dameged as result of power blackout and I lost about four hundred pieces of broilers. At the moment I repaired my freezer and its not up to date. But so far so good because I must say challenges are there to make me strong. Thank you zidisha family for supporting me and making me a better person. God bless
