About Me

My Name is Chisanga Mulenga. I live in Kitwe, Zambia. I am 47 years old Zambian Lady. I went to school at Fatima Girls Secondary School in Ndola. I finished college and worked for sometime.. I am now full time in Business in Kitwe.

My Business

I run a garbage collection business. I collect garbage door to door weekly on different days in difference areas. I provide Garbage bags for my customers to pack their garbage and charge a fee for collecting their garbage weekly.
Each household is responsible for proper disposal of their garbage at the government designated dump area. Most if the people would rather they out source this service. This is where I come in to help clean our environment and the garage bags keeps the household garbage properly contained reducing the spread of diseases.
This service is on very high demand as it is needed by every household.
I choose this much need service to provide help clean the environment the community, employment to the youths and reduce the spread of diseases.
Cost are transport, salaries, dumping fees, telephone bills, Administration costs and there is an income that comes in every week.

Loan Proposal

The funds will be used for the day to day running cost of providing this service.

From the money, I will by the plastics @ $0.15 per Plastic.

The benefit is that when garbage is neatly packed it will lessen the work of loading the garbage on the truck and off loading the garbage at the dump site hence creating more time to do pick ups in more areas.

It will be convenient for the customers to store the garbage before pickup time.
I expect the my profit will increase by 20%
