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 Fertilizers and Seeds which are urgently required by the farmers in my area.

The rains have been good this year, however, farmers in my area are unable to purchase essential agricultural products, such as the right seed varieties and fertilizers, due to the non-availability of these commodities.

Income Source

My Shop sells essential agricultural products to farmers in our rural area. It is the only shop selling these products to the farmers.

As such the shop has become popular with the farmers since the first day I opened the shop.

    Dear lenders,

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during my previous loan. It was not easy, but I preserved because I don't want to let you down.

    You helped me when I needed help and I am grateful to you all!

    To Chris and the rest of the lenders, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Not only did I grow my vegetable business, but I also diversified into selling agricultural products. It was all thanks to you.

    Please continue to support me and to help me grow my business. Thank you.
