The business is a combination of many crops production which some of which are short term other are long term and perineal crops. This crops need also of attention and labour for production to be successful and be ready for market. With the support that am getting from l hope l will be able to cultivate the crops very well.

Am a farmer who is into crop production and this is the season for the farming. Since zidisha has been supporting me, my production has increased. Which l need more support to be able to do more. So l use part of the more to buy fertiliser employ labour and also expand the farm. With your support l will be able to do the farming very well

Income Source

The current economic crisis has been a challenge to many businesses and that's very ture. But with farming there is a ready market for the crops. Some times sales are even done on the farm. Many people are involved in the crops business so there is a ready market for the crops everybody will like to eat food. So mostly food stuffs don't normally face economic challenges.
