NURSERY OF COCOA SEEDS
After completion of my Secondary School Education, I started to find something to do so that with a little help from my parents I can continue my tertiary education because I have younger siblings that needs to be cater for by my parent and closely looking at my community I opt for nursery of cocoa seeds simply because, majority of people living in these area are cocoa farmers. They have good land for agriculture and for that matter many of them choose to grow cocoa. I use that opportunity to start to cocoa seeds nursery. Few people were doing that and during the farming season cocoa seedlings become scarce. I was able to produce 3000 cocoa seedlings in my first year of and to my surprise; people were chasing me for it. As I am speaking, I am able to produce 30000 cocoa seedlings throughout the year. This has been the major sources of income to me and the family.
Some of the challenges associated with the cocoa nursery include; ordering of the cocoa seeds, nursery site/space/shade, potting/polybag filling, planting seed, watering, and pest and diseases control. I am able to manage all these challenges and always be in profit. I know with a help from Zidisha and the Lenders my dream can be fulfill

Thank you for giving me another chance to raise loan again to support my project. Some farmers have place order for the cocoa seedlings in quantities and quickly have to work on it. I am now producing quality seeds and I have increased my cocoa seedlings production from 30,000 to 50,000. I have also hired 2 people who are working with me. This season is our major farming season; also the best time to plant cocoa and the number of cocoa farmers have also increased. This is how I am going to spend my loan if I am funded;
Ordering of cocoa seeds - $200
Providing shade at the nursery site - $150
Soil for filling poly bag- $140

Pest and diseases control - $100
I am pleading with all Lenders to help me with my loan funding, this project is sustaining me in school , I have been paying my fees and buying books from this seedlings production and also assisting my siblings in school. God bless you for your continual support.
