In our young entrepreneur focus of the week today we look at 19 year old Laetitia Victoria Mukungu who is a record breaker. She completed her primary school from Nairobi primary school and scored 431/500 marks.
Coming from a poor family Laetitia Victoria Mukungu could not join high school and so devised a way of raising fee to enable her continue with her education. This where her Rabbit business was born.
Laetitia Victoria says quote unquote “After spending time researching on what I could start, I identified rabbit farming as a viable project. I came to learn that rabbit meat is high in demand in the region but supply does not match the demand,”
According to her, Rabbits can produce a number of of kittens a year and do not require a lot of start up fee. They also live on herbs and grass which are readily available. She sells her rabbit to hotels for meat consumption and this has enabled her continue with studies.
