Loan Proposal

Since there have not been a favourable conditions do to the hard and tiring economy and also favourable climate. Goats that I have have not been performing well.since I'll the the loan I'll buy dairy goats and add to the stock that I already have.My target is getting a biggest amount of dairy goats since they fetch a good amount and can improve my living standard and I'll be able to pay school fees in time ,bills in time and improve my transport. Zidisha loans have helped me buy a motorcycle that I have using to go to my daily duties and also carry my family to church, but now my children are now growing bigger in future I'll not be able to carry them with my means of transport so I know with the loan"s profit and my other business I'll be able to improve my transport system. Thank you zidisha team.
