About Me

My name is Samson Chatilo am a farmer .Am a Zambia by nationality I grew up in the remote area of Central Province and to be specific Mumbwa District. From there the only Business I do is farming. I heard of Zidisha loans from my niece and I got interested to apply for the loan to help buy farming inputs.

My Business

Farming is the main source of income and survival, I grow maize , vegetable, sweet potatoes, cassava and groundnuts. Maize crop is the one I grow on a large scare because I sale it to Milling Companies and the profits is very awesome.

Loan Proposal

Am requesting for this loan once again to buy farming crop inputs such as organic fertilizer, pesticides and grower booster, I want to use it to in maize and vegetable crop fields to make the soil very fertile. This way I will have a good yield and therefore realize a good profit. I supply this maize to milling companies at 12.5 moisture content and this allows milling companies to buy and pay me in good time.

Income Source

Apart from growing maize as main crop, I also sale vegetables on a weekly basis. My vegetable Garden is big and I grow a variety for sale. Therefore the income from the sale of these vegetables I will save to repay toward my loan.
