Through the previous loans from zidisha, i have been able to improve the business i started from the first loan i got adding some savings from my employment.

I also want to add more stock including bed sheets and heavy clothes for cold season which is currently in our country. The total cost of constructing a changing roon is about usd 50 and the cost of buying stock is about usd 130.
