About Me

My name is Peter Shawa. I live in Chipata. I am married with three children, one boy and two girls. My wife is a teacher and I am a businessman. Our house is along Umodzi Highway.

My Business

I order sugar and cooking oil from Lusaka and I sell the products in my shop.

My shop is located in Chipata town and it is always a hive of activity with people coming in and out and goods going in and out. I enjoy what i do because I am able to provide for my family.

Project Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase bags of fertilizer for use in planting my field.

I have prepared a large portion of land which I would like to use this farming season to plant maize.
