I am a farmer of Mkushi district. I grow maize which I sell to the national food association.
My first crop has grown and is ready for harvest. The profits that I will make from the sell of the maize would be used to repay my Zidisha loan. I will also buy seeds and fertilizers for the next crop which I plan to plant next week.
I plan to use the loan to buy maize seedlings which I will plant at my field.
The land is already prepared and what is required now is to purchase the seedlings to plant.
I have also already stocked up on the fertilizers.
Growing maize is a huge business in my district and many farmers have emerged from poverty by growing and planting maize.
