About Me

I'm a Kenyan citizen aged 25 years and live in Bomet County. I grew up in the farm and went to primary school within our location named Bukunye primary. I studied B. commerce in the University of Nairobi and is currently working as an intern at the Barclays Queens way branch in Nairobi. Ours is a large family and I'm the first one to attain the University education. Being the first born I have the responsibility of helping my parents to educate my siblings. I also mentor our neighborhood children since they look up to me. I am a Christian and due to my discipline and hardworking I was sponsored by my local church throughout my primary education and was picked up by the Equity Bank for my high school education. This is because I came from a struggling family. I have learnt throughout my life and through the support i received that it's important to support the needy. I have been inspired to help those that are less previlleged hence the main reason I started my dairy farm.

My Business

I have a well established dairy farm in my rural home where I and my family live. I keep Eight dairy cattle and one heifer. I am also working as an accountant in Barclays bank as an intern.

I get at least 24 litres of milk from each cow which I sell in the milk deport in a price of Ksh. 40 per litre. This adds upto equivalent of $ 537 per week and spent at least $ 170. The business is quite stable and the prizes rarely change.

The profit from this business which is around $ 366 is used to keep my siblings in school and help my parents and neighbors. I also have a small family of three which I support. My family relies on me since they have no other source of income. They help me provide the much needed labour.

I am requesting to have my business expanded. Were it possible for me to get Five more cattle then I will really appreciate. My immediate community needs help and I am one of those looked upon.

Thanks for the far you have supported me in purchasing the dairy licks.

Project Proposal

I have a small eatery and would like to request funding to obtain a fruit juice blender which cost ksh. 2000. The blender will enable me to explore the world of fruit juice. Thanks

    Hello, this is wesley from Kenya. I am grateful to be part of this life changing program. My previous loan was quite too small to do anything big, but well I was able to purchase extra Dairy licks for my cattle. Thanks for the kind gesture.

    Hello, my farm is doing well, thanks to your support. My cattle even seems to smile!!! We had water challenges in the past month of April but towards its end God Almighty has blessed us with showers of rain. I used my last loan of Ksh. 170 to hire a donkey to deliver water to my farm but now all. is well. Now I can comfortably harvest Napier grass from my farm. Thanks for your prayers and generous support. God bless you all.

    I received the loan amounting to KSH. 171. I am grateful for considering me for the loan even as I continue to clear my name with the crb, which is taking time. God bless you all.

    I used the loan to purchase dairy licks which cost ksh. 210. The salt will increase milk yields from my cattle. Thanks again.
