About Me

My name is Luchiya Bunya Makuwa, I am 26 of age. Currently living in Lusaka.
I am a striving single mother of 2.
I love being a mother, but I also love making sure my children are secure.
In 2012 I bought a small farm in chongwe with the little money I had saved up from my previous job. Because farming is something I love to do. The beauty in watching something grow from a seed into a plant and finally into food is something only the creator can explain. With just enough water and sunlight.

My Business

I am a small scale farmer, I run a poultry farm( organic chickens, ducks and layers) vegetables( cabbage, tomatoes, onions, spinach etc) fruits ( lemons, maize, oranges bananas and watermelons). I wish to expand with more to offer.
Especially with maize for it is our staple food.

Loan Proposal

Thank you Zidisha funders for always funding my loans.
With my next loan I want to buy chicken feed and 10 goats.
My hope is the goats will multiply and I will be able to sale them.
In due time.

Income Source

I planted 10 hectors of maize and other seasonal vegetables like pumpkins leaves and pumpkins and I have been able to supply them to the vegetables markets. This is one way I can pay my loan. Thank you

    Dear lenders,

    Luchiya plans to repay her loan soon. She is waiting for her goods to arrive and then she will start to sell.

    I want to thank my lenders, for putting their trust in me, with their money. Without even knowing me personally.
    I want to thank them for helping me expand my vision. Not so many people have the heart to help others.
    May your good deeds go on. With my previous loan I was able to expand and renovate what was left of my chicken house.
