    Hi Okoth,

    How is everything going with the new loan?

    Did you receive the money? I see from your comment below there had been some problem getting access to it.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for the message. Mr. Okoth was disbursed this loan on February 24th. We had some problems with our MPESA account around this time, which is what he is referring to in his previous comment, I believe.

      Thank you,
      Bayle, Zidisha Team

        Hi Bayle,

        Thanks for following up on the loan to Mr Okoth.

        But there still has been no repayments or contact. He had paid his first loan off very quickly, but this one has not gone so well.

        Are you able to get in contact with him and ask for an update?
