About Me

i started doing business since when i was a girl, i used to help my mother hawk tomatoes and pepper, virtually everyone in my area knows me as tomatoes hawker at that time, as time goes on i began to have passion for business with great zeal for accomplishment, went to secondary school and also added tertiary education just to boost my business mentality.

My Business

i am a shop owner who prepares pepper soup of all different kinds e.g goat meat, cow meat, fish, e.t.c
i always go to the market on market days to buy fish and meat, come home get it prepared and serve it to my customers.

Project Proposal

I want to use this loan to increase my stock, I want to buy more fish in stock so it will minimize my cost of transportation since I will not be going everyday to buy from wholesalers.

    Due to some unforseen disaster that is caused by rain, I was forced to reinforce my shop surrounding because of flooding, I spent alot in doing this, but I will pay the little money I have at hand.

    I want to use this loan to increase the amount of stock in my store, to buy more fish in stock instead of going to buy it in the market on a daily basis, this loan will help to minimize transport cost and the stress of going to and fro on a daily basis.
    I want to happily thank everyone who participated in this contribution and to the whole zidisha team for bringing this platform to it's existence.

    The last loan was very helpful, because I was able to expand my business to some extent, I was able to buy fish in stock to some extent, instead of going to the market everyday which increase cost of transportation.

    I will use this loan to buy more fresh fish in stock,
    The loan will contribute immensely to unnecessary daily transport expenses in buying of fresh fish..
    And I want to thank everyone involved in making this project a success, thank you all.
