My name is Allan and I am from the remote village of Mkutu in Lilongwe. I have four siblings, and I live with both of my parents. My family relies on subsistence farming as its main source of income. This type of farming is not dependable due to variations in climate. We grow vegetables to make money for the family. I am the eldest child in my family and the only child in college.
I am studying agro-forestry and horticulture and would like to be a farmer. I hope that a sponsorship from Good Soil Partners scholarship will help me achieve my dream career. As a farmer, I hope to employ other people from the organization and community at large. For fun, I enjoy football (soccer).
