My names are Malambo Kelvin.I was born in Ndola , Copperbelt province of Zambia. I encountered hardships in my childhood as i was raised not in my parents home. I started school in 1991 and completed my secondary education in 2002 at the age of 17. I studied Business Management from 2005 to 2007 that earned me a diploma.
For me to go to college, i asked grandma for capital which she gave me, about 30 dollars. I traded with this small amount and i was able to raise tuition fees even after she was dead. This gave me a good business experience.
After completing my college and could not find a job, i worked part time jobs to sustain my life and married in the process because i almost lost hope. As a family man i learnt to be responsible and worked even harder.I was able to raise 700 dollars with which i started poultry business in 2014. Since then i have been through thin and thick ,ups and downs until recently when i become more tough and experienced business man.
We are blessed with the Mediterranean climate and are able to produce pineapples and most people here are launchers from which sector came Zambia's ever richest man Hakainde Hichilema.
My children are still very young two boys and a girl but they like to be found around me and my work.
Am used to reading business material and playing with my kids.
