My Farming Story

As promised earlier this is my short story of how I made KES 100,000 from an investment of KES 10,000 in three months, yes you read it right 3 months. It all started in the month of March 2014, I sourced 5 bags of ready to be planted from my mum at a subsidized price of KES 5,000. By 20th March 2014 the land was ready, so I bought fertilizers and started planting.

After caring out all the required management practices, last two weeks I harvested. I had planted slightly less than an acre and returns were amazing, I harvested a total of 45 bags. After selling them at farm gate price of KES 2,500 you can do the math…..

That’s my story! You too can, don’t let money and excuses be a stumbling block believe in yourself and go after your dream!!!

Currently I am working with my friend Siana Kipngetich to empower other young people through Young Life Africa Inc. Any other like minded individuals who believe we can change the lives of others through different initiatives are welcome to be part of us.

 

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
