About Me

I am married, father of a 10 month old infant, and two other people - an aunt and a niece are all my dependents. I work in a company processing cashews in Bobo Dioulasso. In addition to my employment, I sell many different articles to my colleagues, for example, mobile phones, cereals, household appliances, etc. The revenues from this business allow me to pay for school fees for my niece, and make sure that she eats every day. I hold a BEPC (*trans note BEPC = secondary school graduation cerificate) and have a very good knowledge of computers.

My Business

I am a vendor of many items. I sell my merchandise at social prices, that's to say with a 10% reduction compared to other vendors. I sell my articles on credit to the clients who have proven to be faithful to me, and in whom I have confidence, but I also ask for a down payment from them. This is why people prefer my products to the competition. This business brings me a lot, and my daily earnings allow me to expand. There is not too much risk of loss because my products are much sought-after and I cannot meet the demand. That is why I have come to ask you for support, to respond to the growing demand.

Loan Proposal

First of all I say thank you to all those who trusted me for the first loan. This time again I intend to focus on telephones. I also intend to invest in pig farming because it's a buoyant sector as well. With the rest I will pay for tee-shirts used in major popular events such as weddings and many others. As a sign of gratitude, I will get an internet connection kit in order to help other people build their first zidisha record. Thank you

About Me

Je suis marié père d'un enfant de 10 mois et de deux autres personnes dont une tante et une nièce tous à ma charge. Je travaille dans une société de transformation de noix de cajou à Bobo Dioulasso. En plus de mon travail je vends plusieurs articles à mes collègues à savoir des téléphone portable, des céréales , des appareils électroménager etc…
Les revenus de ce commerce me permettent de payer la scolarité de ma nièce et d’assurer leur repas quotidien. . Je suis titulaire d’un BEPC et le niveau terminal de l’enseignement général, et une très bonne connaissance de l’outil informatique.

My Business

Je suis vendeur de plusieurs articles. Je vends mes marchandises à des prix sociaux c'est à dire avec 10% de réduction par rapport aux autres commerçants, je donne mes articles à crédit à tous les clients qui me sont Fidel et que je fais confiance mais ils versent d’abord une avance. C’est pourquoi les gens préfèrent mes articles à la concurrence. Ce commerce me rapporte beaucoup car ce que je gagne par jour me permet de m'épanouir. Il n'y a pas trop de risque de perte car mes articles sont trop demandé et je n'arrive pas à satisfaire la demande. C’est pourquoi je viens vous demander un soutien pour pouvoir répondre à la demande qui ne cesse de croitre.

Loan Proposal

Avant de commencer je dis merci à tous ceux qui m'ont fait confiance pour le premier prêt. Pour cette fois je compte mettre beaucoup l’accent encore sur les téléphones. Je compte aussi investir dans l’élevage des porcs car c'est un secteur aussi porteur. Pour le reste je vais payer des tee-shirts pour les grandes manifestations telles que les mariages et bien d’autres manifestations populaires. Je vais prendre quelque kit de connexion internet pour aider quelque personne à monter des dossiers zidisha en guise de reconnaissance. Merci

    Hi everyone! __ It is with great pleasure that I find myself before a new computer to give my news. __ Note that the beginning of the year was not pleasant for me because in the month of February I was the victim of a motorcycle accident in Ivory Coast of republic or I had gone to search nut raw coconut. I was wounded in the foot but now I feel better. This is what explains the delay found on my refund. To all lenders I apologize and I assure them that the schedule was changed and I"ll thank you Fidel .__

    are there any news from Paul? Unfortunately I don't speak French, but some small repayment now would keep the account alive.

    Je veux renduire le montant de mon prêt afin d'être à jour parce que ces derniers temps mon activité tourne au ralentit. J’ai utilisé une partie de mon prêt pour payer des marchandises que je n’ai pas encore tout vendu, mais avec les bénéfices réalisés avec le peu vendu j’ai pu payer la scolarité des mes petits frères.
    Je sais qu’avec ma bonne volonté je vais pouvoir me mettre à jour très bientôt . merci à tout le monde et bon vent à zidiha.

    Mr. Birba,
    Some advice from a friend to be funded more quickly: you must change your profile to include a very clear picture and modify the description of your business by adding many details and also your loan proposal. Your loan request can be placed in the FEATURED category (the best place) and it will attract the attention of many lenders. Good luck.

    Thank you Jan73 for having thought of me. You saw that I am late in my payments, but don't worry, because I made the payment on time but it hasn't been posted yet. I sent a message and the problem will be resolved.

    M. Birba, vous avez été si ponctuel avec vos remboursements jusqu'à ce mois-ci. J'espère que tout va bien avec vous et votre famille et que le retard apparent de vos remboursements est juste un retard de comptabilité en les affichant.

    granite (29) wrote on my profile on March 15 and asked the new gentlemen Amadou Ouattara. All's well that ends well, thanks to God and your prayer, gentlemen Amadou Ouattara is found and he even made his payment there some days. It instructed me to convey his greetings to granite (29) for thinking of him during this difficult time. I also I appreciated this gesture from you gentlemen. Thank you for your consideration.
    Also thank you to everyone and see you soon.
