My Business

I run a drug pharmacy and vet shop.I really thank zidisha for their constant support that has made my business grow by leaps.looking forward for the new year.I intend to input the incoming loan to purchase more stocks for my pharmacy and Agrovet.By doing so I believe my profits will double and better my life.The proceeds will go to my kids school fees and to start building a decent house.As a whole zidisha has really improved my living standards and that of my family.i encourage the youth in kenya and africa as whole to join zidisha due to flexibility in payments and understanding nature.God bless the lenders and Zidisha as an organisation!

Loan Proposal

The loan I would receive will be part of my expansion program that started about six months ago. This is to make my pharmacy inclusive of animal medical products which are not strategic, convenient and easy to find. I would amass most of my customers to shop from my pharmacy since, already, many people are aware of my new venture. The growing awareness has pushed me to try harder to support the demand. This may require over $2000 (Ksh. 200000) for the start but I would wish to do it in phases to develop a steady growth.

    I take this chance to appreciate your generosity in contributing to my life. With the loan I received I was able to send my children to school and settle their school fees at once which enabled me to focus on business and settle the loan gradually. With this initiative, the business has been relatively stable and I am a happy business man. There is more stock to variety of drugs than was before and that is growth.
    Thank you for your impact in my life.
