About Me

When I have the opportunity like this, I get so much excited to share. I was born and brought up in a village. My parents were both farmers so that's were I lent farming. We relocate to the city where things became very though. I was working with a construction company just to pay my school fees. I did this from my senior high till I completed the tertiary education. I am a Higher National Diploma holder in Accountancy, and am working seriouslyIaround the clock to to charter as an accountant. I have start the process of registration with ACCA. My hope is to get to the top. I was sponsoring myself and little support from family.

My Business

No matter what you want to do, there must be a start. You will have to make a move. One action is worth a thousand good intentions. I started this business after I completed the tertiary education. I was saving for my voluntary service. I first started with one pregnant goat. It was challenging at the beginning but with persistent and purpose I was able to get where I am with twenty-two goat's now. One of my pregnant goat gave birth to three more kids.

Loan Proposal

Thank you very much for this great opportunity. I wanna improve the medical care of my animals. Veterinary services here is quite expensive. My first loan even though was not enough was able to help in some way. The ones am able to take care of are doing very well. Normally in every month I loose more than three of my goat. But this time around it has reduced.

I will be able to buy farming equipment in my farm to enhance the work effectively. I will make a lot of profit which will be able to help me employ one more person in my farm and also buy animals like rabbit and grass cutter.

This will help me ease the pressure and the challenges I go through when paying for the fees of the two children am supporting in school. Thank you Zidisha loan in advance and also my lenders God bless you so much. Thank you
