About Me

I was born in our home village, " kagak". I was raised there for a while by my parents. They died when I was seven years old. Am the third born among six kids. I moved to live with my uncle for the rest of those years. I started my education in our village primary school. In 2009 I did my kcpe and passed to high school which I continued to work smart. I also passed but didnt get direct entry to the university . still have an ambition of continuing with education.. Since hardship is part of life while Persuing a goal, I just work smart and hard to achieve them.. I started farming from advice's that I was getting from friends and because it was the best opportunity for me. Most of the youth see farming as a job of old people coz it dirtify people. Am not married and I don't have a child.. I like playing football since I have talent in it. I help those who are needy to achieve in my capacity.

My Business

I grow vegetables, watermelon, onions and tomatoes which I sell to our local market. Most people depend on these for food. I saw this as the best opportunity for me. I get funds from the stuffs I grow and this is what I use to pay for the expenses. I use the profit made to improve my farming and to support those I can help grow in life. I intend to grow these crops on a large scale. Am also striving to have much that can help me grow other crops.
