About Me

I am 46 years old, working at a wines and spirits shop which I started operating for the last five years now. I need to expand my business due to competition over the years.

My Business

I get profit from the sale of wines and spirits. I get around Kshs 200,000/- per month, which translates to a profit of around Kshs.50,000/- per month

Project Proposal

I had to change my business after the covid 19 pandemic from wines and spirits to farming. If my proposal is funded, I will use the money to prepare my farm by ploughing and planting maize on the 2 acres of land I have leased. I expect to harvest at least 20 bags of maize from this land. I am sure that from the harvest, I will now be able to lease bigger land to plant a variety of seeds in the coming year.
