Madalitso Chapweteka born in 1979 started farming rice in 1998 on a 0.4 Ha piece of land from where he used to harvest 400 Kgs. This was the case because he was using recycled seed and without any good agricultural practices. His life started to change for the better in 2009 with the coming in of the African Institute of Corporate Citizenship (AICC) at Domasi Irrigation Scheme. AICC introduced a project which was providing inputs through revolving loan to the farmers, promoting good agricultural practices (GAPs). The project also introduced modern farming technologies in rice production in order for them to increase their rice production.
