About Me

I am a self employed lady, I am passionate about my business and helping my community get vegetables near them at a low price. I started the business in early 2017. I was raised up in the arid areas of kilifi county. When I was growing up I saw my mum struggling to get vegetables especially tomatoes and onions and she got them at very high prices, this is what motivated me to start a green grocery supply so as to enable availability and affordability of the products.

My Business

I started my business back in early 2017 with about 5000 shillings and a small area coverage. My dream so far is to reach and supply the whole of kilifi county but I am constrained by capital to buy in bulk.

Project Proposal

I want to start a chapati and beans business besides my juice business. The funds received will help purchase the stock and equipments for the business
