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.
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.
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.
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.
