About Me

My name is Chomba Ackson in Chembe, Zambia. I am a disabled man with one leg amputated, I got hit by a car in 2019 as I was on my way to church. I even have police and hospital reports, I am married with 5 children. I do face a challenge in terms of making moves because I don't have a wheelchair for the one I use sometimes I just do borrow from someone and at times rent it. Even although I work as a teacher I also have a challenge of putting food on the table for my family because my business has not yet grow due to lack of not having enough capital and because of my condition and my salary is not that effective, on the other hand my wife sells tomatoes and vegetables. But we do manage by the grace of God.

My Business

Even if I have a job, I need something to supplement my salary. There is so much I can do and make money on the side. One day, this side hustle could become my full time job and only source of income. I Take time to work on my little business on the side and make it better. I have a grocery store that I am running with my wife

I use my weekends very well, because I spend weekends working on my business and making it better. I Don't want to become a destitute when I lose a job. When I lose my job, I still remain a man and head of my home. I will still remain a provider. Make hey while the some shines.

After Expenses atleast we do remain with 1200ZMW and make 800ZMW profit per week. We need your help Zidisha in order for our business to be boosted and grow bigger and more.

Project Proposal

My daughter has decided to pursue Nursing at Ndola Central Teaching Hospital. Since from her childhood her dream was to become a nurse. She could always say I will provide comfort and support to patients and their families as they recover from illness or injury, manage chronic illnesses, and live with disabilities. Since Nurses allows to help people feel better about themselves and that's a powerful benefit of being a nurse my daughter crave for that.

I am applying for this loan in order to pay college tuition fee for my special daughter who would want to pursue Nursing academy.

Tuition fees are charged by universities and colleges to cover key elements of my daughter's course and academic life, as well as core services related to students. I was told the tuition fees must be paid in full on or before matriculation at the start of each new academic year.
