About Me

I'm Nyongesa Staus Okumu, Born and raised in Kenya,Kakamega county. I was born in a humble background, I went to a local primary School where I studied for the entire 8 years The whole 8 years in Primary school was a huge burden to my guardian considering the situation at hand? I never wore shoes until I joined high school. Every step I made in life was only but a struggle,I vividly remember how I was out of classroom doors several times due to school fees in my local high school. Finally I matriculated to a renowned Private university in Kenya. It’s during the university level  that  I started my decoration Business together with my Friends, I being the sole owner of the business.

Project Proposal

Greetings Zidisha Family, I would like to start by appreciating your kind support to wards my projects.
My current project will be shifting to Farming as part of expansion on my previous project of Decoration.
I have expanded my business through the profits that I get from the major business hence I would love to shift to Farming.
SUGARCANE FARMING is our major cash crop in our area, so these funds will enable me to start preparing the land for planting with hope that my limit will increase so that I can manage to plant and pay labor.
Thank you so much, I am really looking forward to your support on this project.
Have Blessings.
