About Me

Hello Zidisha Team.
Am Wayne Kyalo from Nairobi Kenya and i am a farmer. I do crop farming mainly horticulture and animal farming dealing specifically with dairy n poultry. My farm is located along the Nairobi-Kangundo highway in a place called Ruai. The project was started in April 9th 2009 after along inspiration from my high school and a friend of mine who had started the same and succeeded so i had to try also and with the help of the good team that i had i managed to bring up the project. I have leased another acre that i will use to do open field production of Tomatoes.

My Business

Hello Zidisha Team.
After joining the instituion and becoming a full time member my business has taken a new dimension. I have switched to dairy farming as a part of accomplishing my goals for the year whereby i am on the process of acquiring a second cow after i realised increased demand for milk . Am looking for more funding from the institution as this will help me taken the business to the next level. On top of this i have also ventured into horticulture and this time i want to do my second green house for tomatoes as my demand for supply of the same has increased for the last one year.

Loan Proposal

Hey Team .
My next project as i indicated earlier in in my profile is about horticultural farming and this time i doing hybrid tomatoes targeting to sell them by December this year reason being they will be out of season and that will be a good opportunity to make good profit. I have prepared the land and all am looking for is money to but the seeds chemicals and labor for the same. Thanks in advance for your support.

    I supported Wayne's loan on my first day as a Zidisha member. Although the payments varied in amount and regularity, they kept coming. I appreciate the commitment to paying off such a long-term loan.
