My name is Nickithemba Sikhambule, I am 23 years old and I am from a township called Mbekweni in Paarl,South Africa. I am taking this opportunity to please ask for funding for an aquaponics farm start up idea I have been working on, I have been to banks and loan sharks but they turn me away because I have no collateral to give them.
I have a long distance mentor from Kenya who has helped me with this idea and has supported my dream in numerous way but now it’s tike to execute my idea and bring it to life. To start with a small green tunnel for the aquaponics farm i need seed money and that’s why I am here, to see if nobody can help me to buy the equipment needed for the farm to get off the ground.
I am an aspiring entrepreneur and I hope to take this idea further and further into the future and supply the local supermarkets in my community with fresh produce that is both healthy and organic. I also have 4 years farming experience from working on a grape farm during my high school holidays where I started out as a picker then moved to systems control and driving a forklift, that experience has shaped my knowledge and has given me great insight into how to run my own farm one day
Any funds donated will be used in the acquisition of the grow tunnel,seeds as well as foam floats for the plants and any other equipment it can afford to get. Some images have been provided to help you visualize my drea
