Boga’s Farm start up threatened
Am Boga Mnindwa aged 40years old from Botswana. My vision is to own a farm that I can use to grow vegetables so as to employ people in my country that is full of youth who are not working. Not only to take youth from the street but to give them a living. This platform, Free women entrepreneurs by Mrs Mellany Mariri is great. I have learnt a lot from it because women interact there talking about the businesses they are doing or aspiring to do.
I have a ten hectare farm here in Botswana that is on virgin land and full of bushes and trees because I do not have the means mainly being funds to carry out the process of preparing it for farming. I have tried to look for funds but I can’t be funded as my paying job salary is not adequate for me to be funded. I must also not be working but it’s not a guarantee that I will be funded if I stop working. What pains me and is scaring me is that after some years if the plot is not developed, it will be repossessed. I hope I get access to funding by connecting with other women and getting help.
