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.

On 18 September, AICC had a press briefing where it presented a business case for a once-off capital injection US$4.8 million into a cotton input fund as a short to medium term input supply intervention. It is expected that the injection towards input fund will rejuvenate the sector by generating US$60.5 million in exports, US$26.5 million annually accruing to smallholder farmers and over US$ 50 million accruing to various players engaged in value added services.  Additionally, the sector employs over 20,000 workers on both permanent and temporary basis in cotton value added activities during a ‘normal year’ when over 50, 000 MT of cotton is produced.
