About Me

My name is Billy Bwantu. I live in Siavonga town. I am married with four children.

I run a shop where I sell various types of agricultural products, such as fertilizers and Seeds.

I started this business because I am a farmer and I understand what farmers want to get better crop yields.

I advise farmers on seed varieties, types of fertilizers to apply and what types of herbicides to apply to crops.

My Business

I am a farmer and I also run a shop selling agricultural products.

I sell seeds, fertilizers, herbicides and sprayers. I also sell some of the crops which I grow at my farm, such as tomatoes and cabbages.

I started small, with a small vegetable garden and a water pump, which I bought using a loan I received from the community.

Thanks to the lenders I have now managed to open an agricultural shop.

Loan Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase bags of fertilizers for my agro store.

The farming season is almost here and I need to stock up on fertilizers

I also sell seeds, polypipes, hosepipes, herbicides and sprayers. I also sell some of the crops which I grow at my farm, such as tomatoes and cabbages.

Income Source

My business is doing well and this is how I managed to repay my previous loan.

I will continue to sell what my customers want so that I can make money to repay my loan.
