I am an entrepreneur , a nutritionist by training. I have worked variously formally and informally. I run a start up called Glofha genearl supplies and a women empowerment group called kaleluya women self help group. Besides this i ran a business of money transfer and rental units which i have been slowly progressing thanks to zidisha.
I come from a very humble back ground but discipline , hardwork and honesty has really shaped my life and blessed my fortunes.
Being a business person i have retained my focus on reaping what i sow. This covid season has not been friendly to business at all ,but being in agribusiness i have had a lot of demand for food in the market . I have worked so hard to deliver , and so far so good. during this season many people resorted to working online and so increased the demand for internet and computer usage. We are situated in a rural area and so i saw a need which needed to be met, and so i took one of the personal computers to be used to meet little computer services, to my surprise it is what has paid off compared to my other businesses.therefore am looking forward to running a business alongside the electronic transfer business.
After harvesting my tomatoes in this month i am planting rose coco beans in the farm to promote my soil productivity by rotating the crops. The loan is going to help me buy the seeds for the beans which is an equvalent of usd 120 thats a dozen for one acre piece of land, fertiliser will cost usd 60 for 2 bags of DAP, and usd 40 for 2 bags of CAN i will add 2 bags of urea which will cost usd 40. then tilling and labour will amount to an approximate of usd 50
I shall focus to get an optimum yield by closely monitoring and feeding the crop well with constant pest control and foliar feeding and weeding. I look forward to getting your support to achieve this dream.
The current situation has been a major challenge to us farmers because of the economic climate. Everyone is suffering now but food has to be consumed. We are the suppliers of the food product in my community and thankfully i have been able to deliver to the people. i wouldnt want to dissapoint the consumers as they look up to us farmers. i am looking forward on selling m y tomatoes and repaying my loan , and by the time my beans are mature and harvesting i can fill in the circle to keep my business going. I envision a better tommorow for my business and expansion.
