I am the fourth born child in a family of seven children. I was born in nyando which is my home district my father worked as a clerk with smithkline & Beecham in Nairobi i thus went for my primary education in Nairobi and after sitting for my primary school i went to Onjiko high school and after high school i tried my hands in business selling house ware in Nairobi after which i moved to Kisumu and later on to Busia where i have been stationed for the last six years currently i operate a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) in Busia.
When i left Kano for Busia i was running a business that saw me provide horticultural products from Busia to kisumu as Busia town is located at the border of Kenya and Uganda and Uganda being an agricultural rich country i was able to save enough to enable me buy a motorcycle which aids me in transportation of the green products thus reducing my transportation costs and the cycle doubles up also as a boda boda thus enabling me to maintain it ( Servicing and fuel).I therefor let it out and use it only once a week when i am transporting my goods.
The recent El nino rain has wreacked havoc on parts of the country (Kenya) and with it the destruction of farm products moreso in the Nyanza region which happens to be my area of supply this has opened the door for supply of kales and cabbages i therefor intend to use the loaned amount in supplying this products from uganda, aventure i am sure will pay of due to scarcity of these products.
