About Me

This Hagai Kalumba from Lusaka, Zambia. I completed my secondary education in 2014.

Due to limited funds, I could not manage to attend college. My Father passed on while in grade 10. My mother supported me and my siblings from her tailoring business.

However, she could not manage to sponsor me to college so I started up a small business to help me and supplement my mother.

My Business

My source of income is the tailoring business that my mother runs. Since she is advancing in age, I want to take up that business on full time. She has taught me the designing and sewing skills but I am not certified.
So I need money to get a trade certificate and procure another sewing machine.

Project Proposal

I want to buy sewing materials so that I can make school uniforms to sale to different schools as the new academic year begins.

I want increase the allowance for my helper and move to a bigger shop that has a bigger space.

from the funds I will get from Zidisha, I'm expecting to increase my profit margin by 70%.
