About Me

I was born in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, but we relocated to upcountry while I was still a kid. Growing up in the rural area forms the bulk of my history including my early school life. I vividly recall experience in public school and it wasn't easy.

Encouragements and guidance from my parents helped me pass my exams in primary and high school despite numerous challenges. Eventually, I joined the university to pursue a applied statistics with computing degree.

While I am a graduate, my ambition is to venture into agriculture and create employment. Over the years I have tried my hand in farming with ups and downs. Although the journey is challenging it is not without lessons. I believe in the near future everything will fall into place and the rewards will be worth the efforts.

My Business

As mentioned, I plan to start projects that can help me growth financial.

I am passionate about horticulture and vegetable farming. I have severally reaped a handsome income from farming activities. My plan is to boost my farming venture.

Eventually, I hope to do farming in greenhouses. I want to start small and hence I require some cash to add to my savings to realize my dreams. I am appealing to lenders to consider funding this endeavour.

Project Proposal

The dairy farming is on a growth trajectory due to demand of dairy products. For this reason, I want to venture into dairy farming business. My plan is to start small with calves and later transition to rearing milk producing cows. I hope to get lenders to walk with me in this journey.
