Stock for grocery shop and school fees for my son

You will notice that the photos attached are for mkunde (bean plant) and not amaranthus.
I had planned to plant amaranthus (mchicha). I actually planted almost 4 times different sections of the farm but it refused to germinate. So I decided to plant mkunde which is doing pretty good.
The pics you are seeing now are for 1 and 1/2 months mkunde.
If you visit the farm now there is no where to step.
I am so grateful to God and to the Zidisha family.

Add stock of foodstuffs to my store

Dear lenders, I even don’t know how I can express myself in words. I’m really happy when I see your souls concerned with my plans. Assisting- something that is absolutely rare in Kenya today. I’m really glad, thankful and and equally happy.
The loan, as I had stated earlier, it has reached a state where I’m not the only one benefiting but my family and now I’ll add one person to make my operations and daily activates run smoothly.
As far as my business is concerned, I will add stock, bring more modernity to the business and also actually find more room for expansion. If you let me share my vision, I am dreaming to have two more business in other towns where I have identified the gap. But before reaching there, I must manage this first but I see brighter future on my way. Thank you and god bless.
