About Me

Am Anthony Maina. A Kenyan citizen. Am a small-scale farmer & a fully qualified Accountant by profession. I have a master's degree in finance but with a great passion for farming and for helping a certain section of people in my community. These are the Elderly, the underpriviledged and the youth. This is after living in the village and realising the difficulties such people go through. Doing farming, i noticed i can be able to earn some income and also be able to supply food at subsidised prices nt to mention for free when i have surpluses as a corporate social responsibility.

The proceeds from my farming business as previously said, is largely geared to help my local community especially the youth, the elderly and underprivileged people. I.e. employment or capacity building to the youth to minimize substance abuse and crime, providing simple nursing care to the elderly people, basic needs like food, water, water storage containers, firewood etc to the elderly and underprivileged people.

My Business

https://youtu.be/-r9dSBTqmzc

My day-to-day business is farming and simple livestock keeping. I do have seedbeds for cabbages, kales, fruits, trees seedlings for sale to my local community in Miiri village, Mathira East constituency.

As mentioned earlier, most of my farm produce and income goes to helping the elderly and underprivileged people in my immediate community in order to improve people's living standards especially when it comes to afford basic needs.

With the onset of the short rains in October, I would like to construct an artificial dam to collect water for farming. This will involve plastic dam liners and labour for digging the dam which will cost me around kshs 35,000. Generally, Farming is facing challenges due to climatic changes and the dam will come in hardy when it comes to water for irrigation in the farm.

Project Proposal

I will purchase assorted seedlings for sowing to have seedlings for sale and for planting at home. I will sell the seedlings and the vegetables that I will plant at home. I will also buy some pellets for my rabbits to make them grow healthy inorder to get a good market for them.
