Knowledge of Farming and Savings Lift Phillip Out of Poverty
By Alex Nkhoma, World Vision Zambia, Mbala Area Programme “Although I went to school, I never knew that farming could be treated as a business. I thought it is just a way to one’s survival – to have food for one’s family,” Phillip Maivune, a farmer of Mbala district in northern Zambia shares. Phillip, 30, is married to 27-year-old, Noriah Nachilya. Together, they have two children – Faith, 4, and eight-week-old Favor.
