🌹Talk about us. Maria Zileni Zaloumis is the CEO of Tuzini Farms, a commercial farming company that specializes in growing tomato. She is a member of the Zambia National Farmers Union. Syngenta and Omnia have recognized her as Zambia’s Youngest Female Farmer.
Before starting her own company, Maria studied nursing at the Australian Catholic University in Australia, where she practiced and later came back to Zambia where she struggled to get a job. She then decided to take over a section of her family’s farm (then Mariangale Farms) and has since turned it into a commercial entity. Soon after, she landed contracts to supply both Food Lovers Market and Choppies. She started with only half a hectare of tomato and now she has thirteen hectares.🍅
❤️Maria is a Nurse Practitioner and a professional masseuse. She has a Bachelor of Nursing, a Master in Cardiology and a Diploma in Business.
📍Maria has a interesting entrepreneurial journey and she has speaks up several times insight on how cognitive dissonance can improve your skills in business and running a business with medical precision.
