Solar lamps & clean cookstoves for rural women & girls

Words can't explain how excited I feel that the loan was funded in one and half-day! this is clear proof of all my lender's belief in what my business is doing and the impact it has on people and the planet.

With this loan, I will continue with the distribution of solar lamps and clean cookstoves to Lundazi so that more families can have clean sources of lighting and cooking.

This will help my business expand in new districts and villages and also impact more households with life-changing products such as solar lamps and clean cookstoves.

I want to thank all of you my lenders for your continued support and always know that together we are transforming lives for the better, one village at a time!

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 pesticides

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.
