I am Veronica katongo. I was born on 12th August 2000 and am from Kitwe. I am a young emerging farmer and against all odds am making it in farming.The challenge I have gone through is society failure to accept that as a young lady i can make it in Agriculure, But the Lord has been giving me strength everyday to be successfull.
After I completed my secondary education 3 years ago I did a 1 year course in Social Work at the community and development college. I enjoy serving the needy in rural areas of my country. And in one community where I was serving I found a good family that offered me a small piece of land for free after they noticed I was so much interested in farming. So for 2 years I have been there trying a number of plants and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I need a loan to buy organic fertiliser and pesticides for tomatoes. I have planted tomatoe, green paper and carrots. This will give me better harvest The profit I will make I reinvest in my business, I want to keep improving every time I harvest either green paper , tomatoe or carrots.
I have a job I work as a Social worker under a girl child project for SOS children's foundation. I get allowances on a weekly basis so that is my source of income.
