About Me

My fullname is Mbilima Sebete I was born in 1997 and I come from a family of 2 boys 1 girl. I am married and I do my own business. I grow tomatoes and I also supply rice in schools especially to teachers. I did my primary education in Lusaka and later completed my secondary education in kitwe. I could not go to college because of lack of support. when I have chance and save enough money I will still want to go to college. I am married and I have one child a boy who wants to become a medical doctor.

My Business

I grow and sell tomatoes. Apart from that I sell rice. From my farming business I make some good money because I do it under an outgrower scheme where Amiran Zambia give us a lot of support. I have a 1 hectare farm and my tomatoes grow so well. Once I am stable financially I plant to buy a bigger portion of land and grow lots of tomatoes. Tomatoe is used in every home so its high on demand and that's why I chose this business. My typical costs are seeds and fertilisers and also labour. But once I harvest I make some profit which I use to feed my family and pay house rent.

Loan Proposal

I want to thank all my lenders for my previous loan. I am a farmer and I mainly plant tomatoes.I need a loan to buy plastics so that I can cover my tomatoe plants.It has been raining heavily and the tomatoes is getting affecting by heavy raisns so this plastics will provide some protection . This will help have a better harvest. I am confident customers will buy and I will make a profit.. And i thank you even before i receive the loan.

Income Source

If i get this loan i will manage to repay it without so much problem because people must eat everyday . Therefore my business will remain stable i will be able to sell and make profit and repay my loan.Even when there has been covid19 i have still been receiving orders for tomatoes.I have also continued receiving orders for my rice which i sell to teachers. So with this in place i cant fail to repay my loan
