    The loan I just completed paying came through in such an amazing way as I was able to purchase the items I needed to complete 7 pencil portraits that were commissioned. I made good profit and i believe one day I will expand my business. Hopefully one day I can get a higher loan limit to purchase other equipments to make frames for the portraits instead of outsourcing them,

    Hey Zidisha community,
    First and foremost I am grateful that you lent me cash. It helped me a lot as i was able to purchase painting and drawing equipment. Today I have been able to make my first payment as I was able to get a client. It is my believe that I won't be late on payments again. Regards
