    Hello and good evening zindisha/my lender Mr Paul Buchheit do hope you are all well together with your beloved one?i know i have been very quiet for some times now.i didn't choose to be quiet toward achieving my goals with you,it because i wake up 1 morning (13/04/2018) and found that my business was robbed and some important working tools were stolen like metal stands ,crates etc and as shown in the pictures below.from then i lost concentration since those stands costed me $150 each.because of that i forget there was a loan to pay but now am back and i promise to pay all my standing by tomorrow God willing.Thank very much zidisha ,all staff member,my lender Paul Buchheit and all other lenders may Lord's favor be with you and your beloved one always.
