About Me

My name is Betina Phiri a Zambian young woman. I grew up with my parents and I completed both Primary and Secondary School level. I over came my life challenges through engaging myself in entrepreneur ship businesses. I joined farming cooperatives and that is how I started my farming project.

My Business

Am involves in gardening of farming maize , sunflower, groundnuts, cassava, sweet potatoes and vegetables.

These good when ripe like this time during the marketing season are in high demand from Millers looking for grains. They are highly profitable and sustainable.

Hence the profits made are used to to improve the living standard, pay the children school fees and reinvestment to the business grow and expand.

I choose farming business because its is permanent business as long as there is rain droughts.

Project Proposal

Am here lenders requesting for humble support from you, I need money to hire a truck to transport my maize from the farm to market so that I can sell them the market is readily available for me to sale at good profit during this marketing season.

I have harvested another 3000 bags of maize already and sold.

I also sell vegetables daily and hence I will be saving some money
to repay towards the loan and I will ensure that I repay the loan on time.
