About Me

Hello. My name is Mercy Lembama. I am a nurse by profession and I am also engaged in a business of growing vegetables at my small holding in Choma.

I am married to Bwalya and we have two children, a boy and a girl.

My Business

I was invited to join Zidisha through a friend who is also a farmer based in Lusaka.

At my small holding I plant various types of crops, such as green beans and tomatoes.

I sell the vegetables to supermarkets and shops in my area.

Loan Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase feed for the chickens which I am keeping at my farm.

I have prepared the chicken house and I have purchased the chicks, drinkers and feeders.

Income Source

I sell vegetables at my farm and I make good sales of my vegetables.

I will manage to repay my loan soon because of the chicken sales.

    Mercy paid the loan back even before it was due. I would lend to her again and wish her good luck for all her future projects.
