About Me

My name is Ethelo Chiyumba. I live in Siavonga town, in the area of Fishing Camps. I am a married woman with two children. My husband is a fisherman.

My father is also a fisherman and together with my husband, they supply me with fresh fish which I sell at the Fishing Camps Fresh Fish Market.

My Business

I am a fish trader with stand at the Fishing Camps Fresh Fish Market.

I sell fresh fish caught by fishermen from Lake Kariba and I sell the fish to local customers, as well as to visitors from other towns who come to visit Siavonga.

Other than fresh fish, I also dry the fish and I also sell salted fish. I dry fish using traditional methods of drying over a fire. My fish is healthy and tasty.

Loan Proposal

I plan to buy a 1000l water tank and one roll of 40mm x 100m to water my vegetable field.

My vegetables, especially my carrots and tomatoes are growing well, however the hot season is here so my crops have started to dry up.

I already have a 5HP water pump which I use with my husband to water the field, so the water tank and pipes will help with growing the crops to enable me to harvest them by the end of the month and sell them at my stand in the market.

Income Source

Business is tough, but my business is doing fine because customers come to buy from my farm. I also sell to the women who resell the vegetables at the market.
