About Me

I am a mother of one beautiful 10-year old working as a freelance writer specializing in various research projects. I studied Avionics Engineering, got my diploma, and desire to support my Avionics career through writing. With more than 10 years of writing experience, I have been able to get fairly good jobs that help me make a good living while raising my daughter. I not only provide for my daughter, and pay her school fees, I also cater for the needs of my family, including my elderly father. That said, I am a God fearing, talented, hardworking and motivated lady.

My Business

I have been making a decent income from writing different types of articles (lately focusing mainly on research projects like market analysis) for the past ten years. Since I couldn't just sit at home once I finished my diploma course, I took to writing as a hobby and turned it into my main source of income. Since I get a fair amount of orders, I have extra help from two other writers on my payroll. However, I seek their writing abilities whenever the work load is too much to handle on my own.

Loan Proposal

Since I will be going back to school next month, I would like to increase my workforce from two to four excellent writers. They will help me meet my clients' demands and deadlines. This loan will help me top up the additional employees' salaries for this month as I train them to meet my kind of quality work.

    I bought a laptop that I use for my writing since I have took up writing as my main income source so I can have time to raise my daughter, and serve my family and church.

    With the new laptop that I am looking forward to purchase from the loan money I receive, I project a higher increase in revenues since it will enable me to get more work done and enroll the services of an extra writer, something that will open an opportunity for someone too. Such openings and opportunities are the ones that are truly in tune with the Zidisha team spirit.

    My last loan has really helped me so much that I cannot help but to foresee a brighter future for my little business. In recognition of that, I therefore put a request to lenders to please fund my current request so I can help finance the purchase of one more laptop to help in the growth of my work. Thank You

    I am happy to have gotten the chance to purchase a software that assists capture little grammatical errors in my articles. Freelance writing is currently my main source of income, therefore, producing quality work is the only way I can guarantee payment. Additionally, I have gained more clients due to my improved quality in article writing. Thank you so much for helping me achieve some of my business goals.
