About Me

My name is Luchiya Bunya Makuwa, I am 26 of age. Currently living in Lusaka.
I am a striving single mother of 2.
I love being a mother, but I also love making sure my children are secure.
In 2012 I bought a small farm in chongwe with the little money I had saved up from my previous job. Because farming is something I love to do. The beauty in watching something grow from a seed into a plant and finally into food is something only the creator can explain. With just enough water and sunlight.

My Business

I am a small scale farmer, I run a poultry farm( organic chickens, ducks and layers) vegetables( cabbage, tomatoes, onions, spinach etc) fruits ( lemons, maize, oranges bananas and watermelons). I wish to expand with more to offer.
Especially with maize for it is our staple food.

Loan Proposal

Am happy to join the zidisha family, in hope to grow my business to a larger scale.
With this loan, I will buy maize seeds for this seasons produce. For the weather is also very favorable.

Income Source

Every business has risks, but every season has its own produce.
Some good, some bad. But I always strive to make profit.
