About Me

I am currently working as a legal assistant at a law firm in Lusaka, Zambia. My salary from this job is not enough to sustain me so I am trying to raise funds to open up my own Airtel money booth to give me extra income.

My Business

Airtel money booths make money when customers come to deposit or withdraw money from their Airtel money accounts. The key is to have a booth an area where there is a lot of traffic in order to maximise on the profits. I plan to use the money made from this project to open up more booths. I recently received a Zidisha loan of ZMW1,288 which I repaid on time. I am still trying to raise enough money for the Airtel money booth.

Project Proposal

The funds will be used to purchase 100 day old chicks, as well as 8 bags of feed which will be given to the 100 chicks over the 6 weeks. The chickens will then be sold at the end of the 6 weeks.

    I was able to repay my loan after selling chickens. I am requesting a new loan in order to buy feed for my broiler chickens.

    Thank you for the loan. I will use the money to open up an Airtel money booth. It will help me empower other people by creating employment for the individual that will work at the booth. I aim to open up many more booths.

    This is a good business idea. When someone gets a good job in the city, they can use airtel to send money home to their family.

    The previous loan was used to invest in an airtel money booth. However, I was not able raise the full amount. Therefore, I need to borrow a larger amount which will enable me to pay the full deposit as well as the booth.

    The last loan I received was able to help me finish clearing the land which I own as well as pay off the outstanding annual land rates.
