Am aiming to do farming in next coming days as soon as possible in the year 2019. My name is Abdulaziz Momba from Tanzania a student from Sokoine University of Agriculture am doing B.sc irrigation and water resource engineering.I have passed in various hands including hands of Journalism such as Newsquest Media Group of South London and Youth Journalism International of United States of America. Also i have done a short coarse in National service army which aims to prepare youth to be able to solve problems in the communities. I was born in August 24,1996, I'm energetic and motivated youth ,i have been deciding to change the mindset of other youth who are afraid of doing farming that they can turning farming as a part of job that we can make a life.
I have a niche already, I am aiming to do vegetable farming which including farming of water melons,Onions and vegetables such as cabbage just mention few.
I have already got a permission from my beloved mother to cultivate four acres of land which are owned by her. The land is found at Rungwe District in Tanzania a place where you can view a peak of Mount Livingstone and Mount Rungwe.
In this region climatic conditions is well supportive. Apart from been passionate to do farming also am planning a farm for success,the crops to be harvested will be for foods and for sales. Being doing farming is not only for food purpose,part of earnings from those selling crops will be directed to the special events such as Environmental conservation events and some development campaigns.
The market of my crops is well available , Because the crops I have planning to grow have higher demands in our daily life. For example onion,tomato,water melons are well used in our daily life.
Having those four basic foundation I am still hustling in get enough capital to organise and run such project. I have been facing with the financial problems, i have tried to rise a fund via gofundme.com but unfortunate this service is not yet available to my country. As a student I don't have an any assets that I can put as a bond to get loans from financial services such as banks that is why I have decide to request for the rising donations please.
My donations is around 20,000,000 TZS Tanzanian Shilling (TZS) equal to USD =8,765.77 USD
This amount will go to
1.To pay workers ( Not less than 10 man power)
2. Buying two water tanks of about 1000 Litres.
3. Digging well for obtaining water from the ground
4. Cultivate the Land ( four acres)
5. Buying chemicals and fertiliser during the period of farming.
6. Buying irrigation equipment ( I am planning to do drip irrigation)
7. Buying of Hybrid seeds
Thank you for your faithful support toward me. Warmly welcome in Tanzania. Happy summer season to you.
