Nurse Matron Hamoonga Empowered by Public Service Agricultural Loan for Farming Venture


In an effort to enhancing food security and bolstering the agricultural sector, Nurse Matron Hamoonga has harnessed the benefits of the Public Service Agriculture Asset Plus loan facilitated by the Public Service Micro Finance Company (PSMFC). The nurse, residing in Palabana, was seen disembarking from a tractor on her farm, symbolizing the tangible impact of this initiative.

This development aligns with the visionary pronouncement made by the President during the 2023 Agricultural and Commercial Show. The initiative aims to empower public service workers, such as Nurse Matron Hamoonga, by providing them with access to agricultural loans and inputs. These resources are intended to not only contribute to individual household food security but also play a pivotal role in bolstering national food production and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Nurse Matron Hamoonga’s use of the tractor, made possible through the Public Service Agriculture Asset Plus loan, underscores the practical implementation of this program. The support extended to public service workers is envisioned to have a cascading effect on the agricultural landscape, fostering economic growth and self-sufficiency.

As the agricultural sector takes center stage in national development, initiatives like the Public Service Agriculture Asset Plus loan become instrumental in realizing the broader goals of the government. By empowering individuals like Nurse Matron Hamoonga, the program not only addresses food security at the grassroots level but also contributes to the overall economic prosperity of the nation.

The sight of Nurse Matron Hamoonga actively engaged in her farming venture, supported by the resources acquired through the PSMFC loan, serves as a testament to the transformative potential of targeted initiatives in the agricultural sector. It signifies a step forward in aligning individual aspirations with national development objectives, fostering a resilient and prosperous future for Zambia.


  1. This is what we need to be doing, we also need more people in copyrights & ICT, then we will move forward. Not just drinking beer and womansing

    • What about nurse Mumbi Chansa, did she get empowered with a canoe? Maybe she should change her name to Hamumbi Hansa.

    • Everything with you mathafakas is about your tribe. This is a loan. This lady will have to pay this loan back using the money made from using this tractor in agriculture. If you were a bank, the safe loan would to people with a proven track record of hard work and honesty. Also, the money she is BORROWING, came from massive amounts of money Southern Province puts in the government budget. As for Mumbi Chansa go and give her money for a canoe. It is likely that the money will be a free gift on top of the many gifts of money coming from Southern Province, which has been poured in the people and their provinces, without any tangible return. You have taken our money and built pipelines and tribal universities, so shut up.

    • You know spaka, they took government and council assets and shared them among their tribesmen, practically free of charge, and they still complain when a woman BORROWS money, from a l bank, for which she had to submit a viable business plan, present collateral, and get approved through an underwriting process- all because the only people they want to see going up are their tribesmen. It does not matter if you do things honestly, and for the benefit of the country. They will still support promote their tribesmen even if these animals have borrowed and looted US $33 billion, leaving us all enslaved to the foreigners who own the debt; or if you were the criminal minister of health whose corruption and incompetence led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Zambians during covid
