Livestock farmer, Abraham Zulu
Abraham Zulu is a livestock farmer, providing for his family through general and livestock farming business. At the moment, he wants to expand into gardening and he is happy that Jacana assisted him with a partly sponsored borehole and pump.
Abraham is married and father of 8 children, living at his own farm near Apollo dam 2 at Mesekera area. Abraham owns a farm where he is currently farming field crops such as maize, groundnuts and beans. Besides this, he also has 14 cattle, 9 pigs and 32 village chickens. After a thorough survey of the area and the profitability of many businesses, Abraham wants to expand into garden. He believes that growing variety of vegetables would be profitable.
