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

With this loan, like my previous loan I would want to buy chicken feed.
Chickens are on their last level of growth. And it’s essential that they eat more. So that they are appealing to customers.

Income Source

Every business as risks, ups and downs.
I hope that won’t be the case.. I am willing to work hard. To make sure my loan is paid back.
