About Me

My name is Hellen Mulenga a Zambian by birth. I completed my both Primary and Secondary School.

I hold a Diploma in business studies. Due to lack of jobs I have engaged my self in business.

Am an entrepreneur and am involved in fish farming business.

When I heard of Zidisha loans I got interested as I need more capital in business to grow it and earning more profits.

My Business

I earn money through selling fish both fresh and dry fish. Fish business is highly on demand hence I have to go to the river or lake to go and buy.

I choose fish farming business because it is highly profitable and I sell very fast.

The profit I make is to grow the business and improve the the living standard of my family.

Should this loan be successful I will need to increase the quantity because of high demand.

Project Proposal

Am requesting for this loan to buy more fishing nets and a refrigerator, there is high demand of fish and I also need the refrigeration facility to help me preserve the fish at the lake.

I will keep the fish well and ensure that once it arrives to my customers it is very fresh well preserved for them to buy.

This will help me to make more income and avoid extra cost of paying for refrigeration
