25-year-old Teresa Kibiri Making A Fortune From Farming Grass 

Teresa Kibiri is a 25-year-old entrepreneur from Nyeri who has made a fortune from farming grass. She started her business, Kibiri Farm, in 2016 with just a small plot of land and a few cows. Today, Kibiri Farm is a thriving operation that supplies grass to dairy farms, livestock keepers, and even zoos across the country.

Kibiri’s success story began when she realized the potential of grass as a profitable crop. In Uganda, most farmers focus on traditional crops like maize and beans, but Kibiri saw an opportunity to break the mold and focus on a less common but highly valuable commodity. She began researching different types of grass and their nutritional value for livestock, and eventually decided to focus on Napier grass, a high-yield variety that is popular among dairy farmers.

With the help of a small loan from a local bank, Kibiri purchased a plot of land and began growing Napier grass. She started small, with just a few cows to graze on the grass and produce milk for sale. As her business grew, she began supplying grass to other dairy farmers and livestock keepers in the area, and soon her operation was in high demand.

Today, Kibiri Farm covers over 50 acres and employs over 50 people. The farm produces thousands of kilograms of grass each month, which is sold to customers all over the country. In addition to supplying grass, Kibiri also provides consulting services to other farmers looking to start their own grass farming businesses.

Kibiri’s success has not gone unnoticed, and she has received numerous awards and accolades for her innovative business idea. She has been featured in several local and international media outlets, and her story has inspired many young people in Uganda to pursue their own entrepreneurial dreams.

Despite her success, Kibiri remains humble and dedicated to her work. She credits her success to hard work, determination, and a willingness to take risks. She is an inspiration to young people everywhere, proving that with dedication and perseverance, anyone can achieve success, no matter how unconventional their path may be.
