I am an entrepreneur , a nutritionist by training. I have worked variously formally and informally. I run a start up called Glofha genearl supplies and a women empowerment group called kaleluya women self help group. Besides this i ran a business of money transfer and rental units which i have been slowly progressing thanks to zidisha.
I come from a very humble back ground but discipline , hardwork and honesty has really shaped my life and blessed my fortunes.
Being a business person i have retained my focus on reaping what i sow. This covid season has not been friendly to business at all ,but being in agribusiness i have had a lot of demand for food in the market . I have worked so hard to deliver , and so far so good. during this season many people resorted to working online and so increased the demand for internet and computer usage. We are situated in a rural area and so i saw a need which needed to be met, and so i took one of the personal computers to be used to meet little computer services, to my surprise it is what has paid off compared to my other businesses.therefore am looking forward to running a business alongside the electronic transfer business.
I want to use this loan in buying maize seeds for planting this month and beans. The farm is two hectares and it's at this season that we plant maize in our community. So am going to buy 10kg of maize seeds @$20, beans seeds 70kg @$56 and 2bags of Diammonium phosphate 50kg @ $33 and the remaining amount I will split to labour and farm preparation which entails ploughing and harrowing, I intend to hire a tractor for ploughing and harrowing which amounts to $50 I will hire 10 casual labourers during planting. Of which I will pay $2 each as a wage. I will appreciate you consideration to give me this loan. Thank you so much Zidisha.
