About Me

My name is Richard Simalundu. I manage a farm and a Mobile Money Shop.

I live in Chongwe farming area, in Lusaka East.

I was born in 1997 and I am a father of two children. One boy and one girl. My wife's name is Elizabeth and she is a nurse.

My Business

I am a farmer and I also run a shop where I sell mobile units and phones.

Other services which I provide in the shop includes, mobile money services to the residents of my area.

Loan Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase Farming Equipment.

I have already used the previous loans to stock up on different types of farming equipment. Now that my new loan request is larger I would like to purchase an ox plough for use to till my field.

Hopefully, when my loan gets larger I will purchase a tractor and a plough.

Income Source

I sell various types of fruits and vegetables at the farm and so I have a steady income which would enable me to be able to repay the loan without much of a problem.

    Richard paid back his loan over a week before it was due. I would gladly lend to him again.
