About Me

My name is Alice Tembo a Zambia by nationality. Am a mother of 5 children. I only went up to 12 grade and obtained the school certificate. I ventured into entrepreneur ship business many years ago. Have been successful in these small scale businesses I want to expand them by investing more funds in the business.

My Business

Am a female farmer, I grow maize, vegetables , sweet potatoes and I rear broiler chickens. The goods are in high demand especially maize because it used for processing mealie meal, both break fast and roller meal and maize bran used as stock feed. I earn through all these goods during this agriculture marketing season.

Loan Proposal

Am requesting for this loan to buy 4000 90kg empty sacks of maize, the maize is ready at the farm to load in and pack in the sack now and transport them to market or to the milling companies for sale. I need empty sacks and pack them for sale and this will allow me to transport 2000 bags of maize for sale and earn money.

Income Source

This time around there is plenty of crops for sale apart from the main main crop , I have also broiler chickens to mention but a few, all these at the farm are able to give me good incomes which can help me to settle or service this loan.
