About Me

Hi, My name is Joy Luvi born and raised in Mombasa. Due to the fact that I had lost both of my parents, my childhood life was not easy. I had the chance to study until my third year in secondary school but I had to drop out because I lacked school fees. In 2010 I had my first child and I didn't want her to go through what I went through. I want the best for her. That is why I came up with the farm Idea. So that I may help my children to accomplish their dreams.

My Business

My Business for now is a farm Idea whereby I will get to grow different farm produce including kales, onions and tomatoes, an selling them at a profit. I realized that farm produce had a strong demand in our area because we always get them from other towns. With this observation, I decided that it is time to put my talent into action and serve the community while I also secure the future of my family. For my farm to run smoothly I need around USD5000 and is expected to bring a great profit that will put me in a better position where I can pay school fees for my children, improve my home and grow my business

Loan Proposal

I want to buy more seeds for my shamba which will cost me around $15. If I get this loan I will be able to buy seeds which can completely cover my shamba giving me a chance for a big harvest.
