To buy wheelbarrows to rent out to others

My business has been Soo different since I got the last zidisha loan. Using the loan, I bought renting wheelbarrows. I took this decision after knowing that in most construction sites there is no enough wheelbarrows because people feer to buy more and dispose them in few days of work. So they find it better to rent. This business is going well. The increased amount of profit is used to widen the small scale farming and to help raise the family. The family is doing well. We are happy for zidisha to help us. Thank you lenders.

Open-field tomato project

Here is a link to a website that has more information about one of the two varieties of tomato seeds that I bought.

Open-field tomato project

The Zytonic M organic fertilizer that I bought for use in transplanting my crops.
It is far much efficient, economic and productive as compared to the regular basal fertilizers. In this case, I am going to use 2kg of Zytonic M organic fertilizer worth 1850 KES to grow a whole acre of tomatoes whereas if I'd use the ordinary fertilizers, let's say DAP, I'd have to buy a 50kg bag at 3300 KES.

To purchase variety of seeds

This is to confirm I have received 2,502 ZMW and i will use it to buy a variety of seeds for plant at my farm.i thank you a lot.
