My dream job is to be a trader of food crops.
My name is Waziiko Eliphazi. I grew up learning how to cultivate land and plant crops. When I joined Educate! Club, I learnt how to identify community problems and come up with solutions. There was a problem of food shortage in my community. I solved this problem by cultivating my three-acre garden. I planted many crops and cassava is one of them. Every harvesting season I sell my crops in the market where I have a stall. I do this during the day till 6.00pm. At night from 7.00pm- 9.00pm I boil cassava from my garden and take it to a nearby market where most women sell cooked foodstuff. I have done this for a long time and now I cater for my daily needs. I feed my family from the same harvest. When the harvest is a lot, I sell the surplus to traders, who transport it to various towns for sale. My dream job is to be a trader of food crops.
