About Me

Thanks you for this opportunity you have given me to join Zidisha Community...I'm a mother who likes farming and my job as well. I started farming while I was still very young girl at school and both home and it is my passion upto date. I was very polite girl who used only to follow my parents and my guardians orders as being instructed by them.....both home and school.
I overcame hardships according with the lifestyle my parents raised in...with hard work for survival on daily basis....I'm trying my best, never to lack anything for family.

My Business

I started my farming since 1990 after I finished School with the support I got from my husband and my family, that helped me to purchase a piece of land where I do harvest different crops like; Maize, Beans, Soya beans, Potatoes, Tomatoes, potatoes and many other crops the land is very fertile for planting cash crops......I and my family we all depend on farming, which has really helped me for paying my children school fees, Hospital bills and home shelters, I also use profits for saving in case of emergency.
Where I live the land is very fertile, because plantation usually do well with farming.

Loan Proposal

Am grateful to the zidisha lenders, if I succeed to get this money i will buy the following items to Create a Greenhouse in my place which will cost a total of $300 to prepair the greenhouse.
I will benefit a lot with my family because we will harvest more tomatoes and other items which will bring benefit to all of us.
We also expect our profit to increase by 70% this season.
