About Me

I am Zambian man age 40, born in a family of 9 and I am number 6th.Completed my grade 12 in 1996. Studed theology for 3 years, Pastoring for 13years. Married and have 3 children. I fellowship with Holy Temple Assemblies of God. During my free time, I like learning new things everyday ,how people leave,what they do and what makes them be what they are. I love adventure too,visiting new places with my family and friends. I also love doing social work, working with less preveraged orphans and the phisically challenged, in the future if my business grows, I plan to build my own orphanage and a community school for the less preveraged.

My Business

On the parallel, I ran a catering business. I have a Restuarant and a play park. I have been in this business for 10years now and is doing well. Though my intentions are to expand it and secure it by putting up a wall fence. The recreation Park is big enough to accommodate outdoor functions. As it is I have employed 7 people. I also run a baber shop, car wash ,recreation park, second hand clothes , shoes and fish farming

Loan Proposal

My desire is to buy biger musical instruments which include big sound boxes (speakers) which is about 300 dollars each and a mixer which would around 132 dollars. I intend to use at the recreation park and many other outdoor functions. I always host local musical artist, kitchen parties and teenager programes at the park, hence the desire of advancing my musical system. I will also have a desire of hiring out the same system which will increase my income. This I believe will increase my returns as I cut down on the cost of hiring musical instruments every time I have a n outdoor function.

    I want to confirm receipt of my loan. I had requested for 7886, and 7492 is what I received after the deductions for the service fee. I have invested the money in the building materials for the security wall fence. With it, my property will be secure. And the clients will have confidence even as they relax at the park knowing that their cars and other belongings are safe. This will boost my business and increase the turn overs. Thanks to all my lenders for funding my loan. It will go a long way in sustaining my immediate and business family.

It will help me secure my properties, my clients and the properties of my clients including their vehicles. And in case of outdoor functions, it will help me bar the UN invited people, maximising my profits. Thank you so much for the funding of my loan.

    I am happy to inform you that the last loan made me achieve what I have longed for. I bought outdoor sound system for the park. Since then I have stopped hiring sound system for outdoor musical programmes. This has helped me reduce on the cost of doing business and enabling me to expand. From the money saved from the hiring of musical system, I have started buying materials for the security fence for the park. It also has helped me increase on the stocks in the bar and restaurant. I have created a good environment for my clients. The services are better than before, since now they have what they would request for. My immediate and extend family has benefited greatly due to the growth of the business. I am able to provide for them and they are happy. We are one happy family who work and live together. I have had time with my family out to Livingstone city of Zambia to see the the mighty Victoria falls one of the seven wonders of the world. We had a nice time since for some of them.

    I am excited that I have finished paying my loan. When I got it,I invested it in the expansion of my menu by introducing traditional foods in my restaurant which which added a new class of my clients. I also have a big water tank now and the water challenge is over. This in all has enabled my business to expand. It benefited my family a great deal that from the profit, I opened a saloon business for my wife, which in turn has increased our income in the family. It is from this that we are able to take our children to school. Thank you zidisha for expanding our working capital, our lives have been made easier.

    I feel that paying what I have been paying will take me a lot of time to finish paying back the loan. With the expansion of my business after I got this loan I feel I can afford to pay more. My plans are that I finish paying this lain so that I can apply for a bigger amount to meet my further expansion program. I wish to bring a car wash at the car park so that as my clients eat they can have thier cars washed and that would mean more money for me.
