My Business

Orange Farming
I started orange farming after my College Education. Farming is something I have interest in right from childhood. I opted for it simply becauase my parents main occupation is farming and for that matter has a large pieces of farm land. So aquisition of land was not a problem. I have been continously planting oranges for the past 5 years and I am now having about 8 acre land of orange plants. Those ones I planted in my first year has started bearing fruits and is amazing how people troop in to buy it. I am currently having five(5) permanent workers and employ 5 casual workers during harvest time.The need has arisen to make expansion of the farm since there are still land to work on . I am therefore pleading to Zidisha Lenders to support me make my dream be a reality.

Because people patronize the product very well, I am able to make profit and can pay the loan from the profits. Aside this, I am a teacher and for that matter,I receive a monthly salary with which I can service the loans I am given. I therefore assure the lenders and the organization as a whole of my commitment to repaying every loan I will be granted.
Thank you.

Loan Proposal

The rains has been very abnormal this season. I among other farmers have resorted to irrigation in other to help in the plantation of the new seedlings and the watering of the entire farm. This will help in maintenance and expansion of the farm as the impact of the drought would not be felt that much. I count on the on the usual cooperation of lenders to help me with this loan support as usual.
