About Me

I was born and brought up in Western Province Kakamega county Kenya. My growing up was not very smooth due to a meager income my parents would survive on from their peasant farming practices. With my 2 brothers we learnt to support ourselves while still very young to supplement our parents little income thus to keep us in school and still have something to eat at home.

These childhood struggles imparted in me a strong urge to excel in whatever thing i lay my hands to do. I started my business by keeping rabbits before i mixed them up with chicken. I am currently a proud mother because my children cannot go hungry. Thus growth is my business choice at this point in time.

My dreams are to be the major supplier of both eggs and broillers to all the retailers in Kakamega county

My Business

I keep chicken for both meat and eggs. I started this business 3 years ago. I started small with only 2 layers (chicken). I have managed to grow this to 40 chicken. I started this business due to the poor background we grew up in. Affording two meals in a day was a nightmare. I wouldn't wish this for my kids.

The biggest challenge are the harsh weather conditions which in most cases call for rapid change of the poultry housing conditions.

My customers include domestic consumers, schools and institution staffs plus shop keepers who buy eggs from me for sale.

I currently have 40 chicken my vision is to grow them to 200 chicken in the next 3 months and 400 chicken in the next 4 months.
I am most proud of this business because of the positive results i have enjoyed from the same this far. In a good month i make profits of upto $ 200 which is use to expand the business and the rest to cater for the family needs

Project Proposal

I would like to increase My chicken firm these is by creating a large space for the young new born chick's
