My name is Charles wahome, am 30 years old, a father of one child. I was born and raised in Gatundia village in Rimuruti district Laikipia county Kenya.I schooled in Lorematesho primary school then went to Ngumo secondary. After completing my high school I started working as a casual labourer in a nearby maize farm. Through the little payment I got, I managed to save some money which i used it to rent a small shamba which i started planting maize for sale which am doing up to date. I have always wanted to rent a big land but due to my financial limitations this become difficult.I usually visit children from less fortunate
In my piece of land i grow maize, cabbage, local vegetables which after harvesting I sell my locals because they are always on high demand. I chose this business because my father brought us up with the same and i would see how profitable it was. After selling the farm produce i get my profit which I use for my family upkeep and also pay school school fees for my child, also i invest some for my future children education. I will appreciate if you can lend me money to expand my farming business. Thank you.
