About Me

Hi my name is Gift Sakala I am 27 years old married with 2 sons. I live in kabwe and I have a farm there. I am a hard working farmer and I make sure my inputs efforts never go to worst so am always there supervising and working with my workers at the farm.

My Business

I am a a farmer I mostly grow maize and various vegetables on the farm. Currently I am just cultivating maize and the other vegetables were cultivated on a small scale just for consultation. I sell the maize to the Food Reserve agency and supply them in bulk usually about a thousand bags.

Loan Proposal

With this loan I need to use it to make a traditional shed house for storing the maize,this shed house is open on the top enable the maize to dry up further. I need to buy planks, dried tall grass,rops to help tie the grass to the planks to stack them together and finally small sticks.

Income Source

Even with this economic crisis it is my responsibility that the loan is repayed back when due using my business profit and sells that I serve.
