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.

Loan Proposal

I intend to rent a land that will cost 30 udollars. Then I'll proceed to buy watermelon seeds that will cost 60 dollars. I'll also buy fertilizer at 20 dollars to help improve the fertility of that land coz in our are, land is not so much fertile. I'll use 20 dollars to plough then another 20 dollars for farm chemicals and other farm labour. This will help me grow economically and help society in providing products and job to the community since they will get job at the farm. I expect profit to increase by 100 dollars.
