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.

Project Proposal

Am requesting for this loan to buy 6000, 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 3000 bags of maize for sale and earn money.
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.

    The the just ended loan was a good success on mu business. The loan helped me in transporting the maize commodity to millers. I also bought empty sacks for loading the commodity. Therefore I managed to sale the maize through which I have bought already farming inputs for the next farming season. The profits made was to buy my family some cloth, uniforms and pay schools fees for them and improved the living standard of the family. Thank you very much and may God bless you so much for favourable support for me.
