    Business has been completely affected by the imposed curfew on movement. Social distancing has forced people to stay away from social places and I'm yet to meet the covid 19KE requirements to fully operate

    Thanks Paul. Very encouraged to have your support in making my business better. Thanks to you we're working on software upgrades and machine repairs we've been assigned to have a youth talent event and for that we need to buy tents and chairs to complete our stage equipment as a full set.
