I am the second born in the family of 5, I started going to school in 1992, and did my primary education till 1999 at Mbiya primary school. Then I did my junior secondary at Namulonga basic school from 2000-2003, then finally completed in 2006 my senior secondary education. From the time I started growing up I've always wanted to be an Auto mechanic engineer, so after the completion of my secondary education I went and had further studies at Lusaka Trades. From the time I obtained my certificates I've never found employment under my profession. This truly made it difficulty for me to continue surviving. But one thing that has kept me going is the small chicken business am doing it has really helped. I love soccer so I do play during my free time. My children realy yearn to be accounts when they grow up so am working hard so as help them archive the long term goals
People can never survive without food, food is a necessity of life and that is why I thought it wise to start a chicken rearing business, relish is needed everyday so Looking at the community in which I live in, it has forced me to start this business so as to help people get food at a lower price but still leaves me with great profit, I do not have much costs apart from the up keep of my chickens in terms of feed that is needed so as to keep them healthy. Being a married man I always look forward to a better future of my own children and relatives so with the profits I get from the same business i always try my best efforts to support my family.
Since I want to grow my business, am planning to expand the place where I rear my chickens from. So I need materials to help me expand it. One pocket of cement costs $10 of which I need 5 of them, then will need to get drinkers and feeders for $80 and then increase on the number of chickens i purchase for a month. So if this loan will be granted then my profit will increase by 60% and this will surely change my way of living.
