About Me

My names are Maureen aketch , am a firstborn in my family and started Zidisha before l got married but now am married with two kids. Zidisha has been a platform of my success. l was brought up in poverty, going to school was very tuff. making ends meet was real struggle, by but Gods grace a friend introduced me to Zidisha , n ever since things have never been the same. things grew from bad to better, I even afforded to take my siblings to school, since l started a business of selling second hand clothings for babies. l would source them from the local market and hack the clothes. the return was great and by the time l was taking my second loan, l got a shop and sold from there. l have a liking and great love for clothes and smartness. this inspired me so much. l got clients that were sent by other client, since l bought the best clothes, by the time I took my third loan l had introduced even diapers that l sent per piece, l notted that people could not buy the entire packet since my hood people hustle a lot. l just love my business.

My Business

my business is something that l have loved doing,I love it with my heart. it has grown from hawking, to a sizeable shop. The returns are great .The interest rate is almost 80% , there was a time my shop was broken in too, but God helped me and l picked up. l now want to buy bails, and open my self. by this l will hang the camera clothes ( the very smart ones) first class then the small ones sell cheaply and continue that way. the profit has enabled me, even employ a casual who stands in for me when l take the clothes to people in offices and even go to the market. l know God will touch your hearts and you lend me more, l grow and even pay my daughter fee.
