    Nathaniel, If your loan doesn't fully fund, I encourage you to try again! Sometimes this happens when there are many good loans to choose from. Good luck!

    The high cost of food and fuel made things a little tough in the early days of March but was able to engage my customers about the need to increase our prices a bit and they were very cooperative. This encourage us to explore new areas and it's been successful hence being able to repay my loan two weeks before the due date!

    It's been an interesting experience these few weeks.The universities were closed because of the strike action of the lecturers and I was a bit apprehensive as to how I was going to repay my loan since most of my supply vase was on forward and my team and I explored other markets and it was amazing to see the demand. Was able to pay my loan ahead of time and looking forward to raise bigger loans and explore other markets

    It's been an incredibly interesting period from December last year,was able to get materials and also did some branding that enable us reach a different group of target during the festive occasion. This went so well was able to finish repayment of my loan ahead of schedule. Hoping to ride on that success to do more

    Was able to utilise my previous loan by buying materials for production and also had a few customised clients. Campuses that are my major markets have vacated so now focusing on events during the holidays whilst at the same time stocking up for school reopening

    I received an amount of two thousand nine hundred and forty five cedis(Ghc2945) from my lenders. It came in handy at a time that I really needed funds to supply ice kenkey for a wedding and a funeral reception.
    Thank you to all my lenders for continuing to support my project and to also assure my new lenders to continue to support me on this exciting project
