    Good morning zidisha team,
    I am still in touch with my clients whom have promised to offset the amount of money I owe them after I supplied them with the farm produce.
    Immediately they pay me, I will send my loan to you. Thankyou for the patience as I look forward to good customers whom will be paying the farm produce on time.
    Kind regards

    This has been caused by the produce I had harvested being delivered to my customer late and he did not pay as agreed although he promised to offset it by the coming week,which will give me a point to pay my installments normally.
    Sorry for the inconveniences caused.

    Today I was able to sell part of my farm produce , specifically kales and managu at a good profit which made me meet my payment instalment on time.
    As time approaches nearer, I will also sell my other part of vegetables (dania and spinach)which will be harvested by this sunday by the same customer.
    To my lenders, I register your effort in making my venture miles ahead .
