    A model Zidisha borrower, in my opinion - I would be very happy to support Eunice again in the future, if requested.

    Dear lenders,
    My name is Analin Saturria McGregor and I'm Zidisha's Country Liaison Manager.
    Holiday seasons involve traveling in almost every region in the world. Developing countries, including Kenya, are no exception - very often this is the only time in which extended families come together and those who live abroad come visit. For some business owners it means great opportunities for additional business, as the number of people in their area increases. The opposite is also true - the holiday travel can bring significant decreases in the number of people in a village and affect business activity.
    Eunice sent us an email explaining she is going through just that. Many of her clients are out of town during the holiday, which has greatly affect her income. She does not expect this to be a permanent problem, as her clientele should be back to normal once they are all back home from the holidays. We have reminded Eunice to notify us if she comes across any issues that might affect her loan payments in the longer term.
    Happy holidays and thank you for your support of our entrepreneurs.

    Dear Lenders,

    my name is Roberta Zenere and I am a Kenya Country Liaison Intern at Zidisha.

    Today we have received a SMS from Ms Ngetha. She informed us that she is sick and under medication. For this reason, she will be unable to send her repayments on time.

    All the Zidisha Team wishes Ms Ngetha a prompt recovery.

    Lenders, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Thanks and best regards.

    Dear lenders,

    My name is Achintya Rai and I am Zidisha’s current Kenya Client Relationship Intern. On 7th March I met Eunice Ngetha in Embakasi area of Utawala in Nairobi.

    Eunice was part of a Self Help Group that taught its members to make detergents and disinfectants. Eunice later started her own business of making these and selling at prices lower than the market. The detergents and disinfectants Eunice makes are used by hospitals and schools to wash floors, clothes, utensils and lavatories.

    The chemicals Eunice uses are dangerous to store so she buys them only after she has received an order. And she receives many of them. She said to me “Even if I go to America I’ll find an order!” I have no doubt she will because Eunice is one of the most confident persons I have met here.

    Eunice told me about an incident which confirmed to me that she is a great marketer. To transport drums of detergents to faraway places, she loads them in public buses and the customer unloads them at his location. She once lost 25,000 Kenyan Shillings worth of detergents when the customer told her he never received it. But she never complained. And now she has very good relations with this customer.

    Eunice found Zidisha on her own. Her earlier loans were very costly so when she needed capital for her business she ‘googled’ it and found Zidisha. When I met her she had not yet received the disbursement of her loan but she planned to use it to buy chemicals for this big airport contract she had recently got.

    Her husband is the principal of a school in Machakos where Eunice also used to work as a matron. She left that job and shifted to Nairobi when the business picked up.

    Eunice has three children, two of whom are studying. She has also adopted five children. Three of these are orphans in her village and the other two are bright students from a school she went to sell her products to. The principal told her that these students couldn’t afford their school fee and Eunice readily decided to sponsor them. This is one trait I have found common in many Kenyans, this incredible desire to share their wealth.

    Eunice’s dream is to build a school. She told me that she has already bought 3 acres of land in an area called Embu for this. I expect great things from Eunice. With her energy and her desire to help others, I wish she succeeds in whatever endeavors she undertakes.
