My Business

I STARTED MY BUSINESS IN THE YEAR 2010 AT GITHONGO MARKET IN MERU CENTRAL. I DO DRESS MAKING AND OTHER CLOTHING DESIGNS.I AM HAPPY WITH MY BUSINESS.
I CHOSE THIS BUSINESS BECAUSE MY AUNT DID THE SAME BUSINESS AND USED TO TEACH ME HOW TO DO IT.I WAS VERY INTERESTED AND I JUST DECIDED TO DO THE SAME.
BASICALLY I USE MY PROFITS TO PAY SCHOOL FEES FOR MY CHILD AND ALSO REINVEST IN THE BUSINESS.

    Dear Team.
    Happy new year.
    I am very thankful for your kind support you have accorded me.
    It has become very hard for me to make the installments as per the arrangement due to the
    poor business and also the hectic time for taking back the children to school.It is for this reason that i request for this adjustment.

    Dear zidisha Team.
    I have decided to adjust the installment plan due to a very heavy burden of back to school.
    There are so many requirements other than school fees.

    Dear Team.
    I am suprised to receive a mail indicating that i still have a balance of ksh.380.
    Where does this come from and yet my balance is ksh. 17.
    Please find out and rectify.

    I wish to continue paying ksh 501 for the next five installments because the economy has not recovered yet.

    I wish to request for a change in my weekly installments to ksh501 every week due to poor financial conditions.Things are still hard with the corona pandemic still with us.Therefore
    my next installment will be of ksh 501 for next five weeks as we wait to see what next.
