About Me

My name is James. I am married to Charity and we have three children.

I live in Lusaka's Makeni area where I own a small holding in the area where I rear broiler chickens. I also keep vegetables.

My Business

I plan to use the loan to buy bags of chicken feed.

I have already ordered 300 chicks and now I require 24 bags of chicken feed.

I plan to sell the chickens to the public over the festival period.

Loan Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase Broiler Chicks for my farm.

I am a chicken farmer and I rear chickens for a living. I enjoy rearing Broiler Chicks because they provide much needed proteins to our community

Income Source

I am one of the main suppliers of chickens in our community.

I supply to local stores and boarding schools. I will use the income earned from selling chickens to repay my loan..
