Golden Lwiindi, 40, is a smallholder farmer in Zambia’s Southern Province. In the past five years, he has bred over 50 goats, developed his farm, planted and sold a variety of crops, and bought a hammer mill. He says the secrets to his success are thinking of farming as a way to make money not just as a traditional way of life, adopting new technologies and methods, crop diversification, record keeping and good planning.
