    First and foremost, Zidisha is not bank which I am aware of, but it has come to help a lot of people and I am soo excited to be part of the lucky ones.
    My loan was fully funded about two weeks ago pending disbursement. I would be happy if something can be done about it for me.

    Hello Sheila, few weeks ago some one posted on this forum too about the loan disbursment to Ghana takes a long time too. I think maybe there is another thing that make zidisha finance team for Ghana unable to send the funds to you soon.
    I suggest you make a support ticket to find out.
    1. Go to help page, choose the funds not receive yet (I'm sorry, I don't know does that the correct sentence in English, mine in Bahasa Indonesia)
    2. Choose no, I'd like to ask help, then inform them as the procedure that written on that page.
    I hope you will get the funds soon.

        Thank you Martin. I'm still learning. My weakness on grammar and afraid to make mistake. It is easier to write than to talk. :)

      Thank you for the heads up Fitri, thankfully my loan has been disbursed, thank you to all my lenders.
      At first Zidisha used to give one week grace period before payment starts but this time no grace period. I received the funds on the 2nd of Feb and payment starts 9th Feb. If funds are used and managed well things will surely be for the best. Thank you Zidisha!!!

      I accepted the loan on the 25th of Jan, 2018 and disbursed two weeks after thus on 2nd of Feb but my issue is with the grace period for repayment. I received the loan on the 2nd of Feb and first repayment is on the 9th of Feb. I hope you understand what I mean?

      Yes Sheila, I understand that there were grace period before, a week time after the loan disburse to us. I thought It was just my minds. I just checked my third loan that disbursed on June 12. I still got the grace period for a week. I don't know why it doesn't exist anymore.

        I am sure probably with time, it will be resolved, at least one week grace period before repayment starts. all the same, little drops, zidisha is really helping us and I am proud to be a part of.
