Seeds of prosperity: Business through reinvestment

After the second day of one of our Pioneer Business Planting trainings in Kenya, a participant came up to me and said: “Jonathan, now I realize I have made a big mistake…”. And she started sharing her story.

“I have a big piece of land and started to farm watermelons. To do that successfully I needed a lot of water and I needed a waterpump. I didn’t have one, so I borrowed a water pump from someone else. I planted the watermelons and after a while I received a big harvest. I sold the watermelons and received $80,000. That was a lot of money. I spend all of this on building a house. I never thought about buying a water pump and keeping some seeds to plant watermelons in the field next year. Now I don’t have any money anymore. Thank you for giving me this insight.”

From this story we can learn that in times of prosperity, it is vital to allocate a portion of our earnings back into our business. By reinvesting and nurturing its growth, we safeguard its sustainability and ensure a stable and flourishing future. This lady’s experience serves as a poignant reminder of the significance of foresight and financial planning in business endeavors.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." - Malachi 3:10
