About Me

My name is Jabes Phiri a Zambia young entrepreneur in metal fabrication business or welding business. I completed my high school at the time my parents did not have enough resources to sponsor me to further my education.

Hence I venture into metal fabrication business which am doing at the moment and I need the financial support from Zidisha to improve business and to become sustainable.

My Business

My main income is from making door flames, window flames, doors, gates, tank stands and many when required by the customers and that is how I make incomes.

I need more welding materials due to high demand from the customers but at the moment I do not have the financial capacity to satisfy the demand from the customers.

Mainly due the prevailing economic situations the profits made I used to buy welding materials and buy food for the family or home improvements.

Project Proposal

Am here lenders requesting for the loan to buy welding materials for making door flames, doors, window flames, tank stands, braai stands some tools to be using and wall fence gates.

It will give me an opportunity to make door, windows, gates, braai stand, metallic chairs and door flames to readily available for the customers to buy and therefore increase profits.

I will most grateful for efforts and support to my humble request. Thanking you in advance
