My Business

My parents left us a farm as 3 children and being the first born I took up the bigger responsibility of even staying there. I grow maize, vegetables and bananas. The main costs are buying of farming inputs.

Loan Proposal

I need farming inputs like fertilisers and insecticides for my farm. I grow maize and vegtables, also bananas. I make profit when I sell which I use to school fees for my siblings.

Income Source

With the economy bringing challenges it's not big problem I can still sell. People need food everyday for them to survive so they will still be business even I there is eonomic crisis.
