About Me

My name is Moses Mashoko. I live in Lusaka's Chelston area. I am married to a Patricia and together we have three children.

Patricia works as a nurse at one of the local clinics. I am a businessman who hires out motor vehicles to individuals and companies.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, transport business has been slow, so I used some of the money which I borrowed from Zidisha lenders to open a grocery store.

My Business

My main business is selling household goods in my Shop which is located in Chelston township.

I sell various types of household goods, such as cleaning detergents, foodstuffs and soft drinks.

Loan Proposal

I plan to use the loan to purchase fuel for use by the five vehicles which I own and which have been hired by clients to various destinations.

I have an account with one of the best fuel service operators in the city and I will draw the fuel when needed.

Fuel is an expense to my business and so I plan to stock up on our fuel supplies so as to provide efficient services to our clients.

Income Source

My car hire business is doing well and I expect the business to continue doing well as many more clients continue to travel.

This is why I plan to stock up on fuel for my business. Thank you.
