About Me

I am Okwukwe Faith Kam, from Rumuokwuta, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. I own a wholesale & retail business, selling rice, beans, canned tomatoes, groundnut (peanut) oil, and other items.

It is located at 465 Ikwerre Road, Rumuokwuta, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

In my shop, I sell rice, beans, canned tomatoes, other food items, and supplies.

I would use this loan to buy 15 bags of rice, to supply the company that gave me a contract to sell 50kg bags of rice to them. I also would buy cartons of spices, tins of tomatoes, and groundnut (peanut) oil, to stock in my shop.

    Borrower number not available to receive calls. I called Emeka Nne who the member claimed to be her neighbor to reach out to her about the loan repayment.

    I called the borrower but her number is not reachable. Then I call other references but only Amarachi Woboroma who the borrower claimed to be her sibling is the only reference that is available as standard the time of call. She promise to reach out to her and likely on Sunday I should try to call back by 3pm.

    The last loan helped me to deliver my contract on time thus giving me more recommendations from the firm I supplied, to others who might be interested. It also increased my sales and profit, thereby putting food on our table. Thank you my lenders from my heart.

I love you all, from the depth of my heart I say THANK YOU! And please please my lenders,I will need your lend again when I apply. The last loan really helped my to meet up with my target of supplying bags of rice to a firm, and this improved my sales, and the most happiest thing about this last loan is that because I was able to deliver my contract on time, the firm recommended me to other firms who want to do contract with me. All kudos goes to you my lenders because without you guys I don't know where I would have been. Thank you zidisha for your perfect work, God bless you.

    The reason i want to adjust my loan to bigger amount is because I was paid for my supplies today, I am full of joy right now and I remembered my source of joy which is my lenders, my joy won't be complete if I didn't keep my promise of repaying my loan on time to my lenders.

    Please my lenders, I want to reduce my payment amount because the firm I supplied rice to said they will balance me the remaining payment in the next two weeks. I promise to finish my loan before the due date. Thanks for your understanding.

    Great news! Its a big one, I won a contract in a company to supply 15 bags of 50kg long grain rice, and I was given part payment. So I said let me pay back my loan to my beloved lenders because if not because of you my lenders I won't have progressed and grow my business to this level that I am now.
