Joseph Osoro ventured into agri business after attaining a degree course in agriculture and veterinary studies.In order to start farming, Joseph borrowed money from his sister to set up a green house to enable him grow crops in all weather conditions. He also rears chicken and has a total of 40 chicks which will start laying eggs soon. He likes his venture since with minimal capital , he is able to do a lot by making maximum use of the land he has.During his free time, he likes doing voluntary work in the nearby community.
Since Joseph has started cattle farming, he needs to lease bigger land for three years to enable him plant nappier grass to feed his dairy cattle. He has already saved enough money to enable him do the cultivation so the loan will go towards lease payment.
Joseph has a big vision in the future to start value addition to his produce so that he can sell them at a good price. He also wishes to have more cattle to enable him supply milk in supermarkets.
