As someone that a passion for interconnecting people for the purpose of communal progress,I'll like to be made a community coordinator on this wonderful platform,thanks.


My last loan was used to up meant for maintaining of vehicles that were already set for delivery. I am base in Calabar, Cross River State in the South South zone of Nigeria. I travel for to South West, Lagos State where we have the only functional seaport (tican). After every successful deal with the major importers I will need to shift the cars to Calabar for delivery to the final users.
The loan has actually made a different because we no more have delays in servicing our fleet.
Our earning has increase from #280000 a week to #350000 a week. The fast we're on delivery the more profit we make.
We use our increase earning to fix cars that have broken down in the course of delivery.
Our achievement so far, we've been able to expand our network through Facebook page, Business WhatsApp. My brother whom was working with me, through our assistance has been able to secure a job with Biase Plantation.
Around my neighborhood, we have an ancient college, then called The Polytechnic Calabar and now it has been converted to Cross River State University. A place to visit. At the outskirt, we also have the Qua Falls resort. In my immediate compound, the building though new is sited on the land of an old renowned candle factory.

School fees support

This funding will help me clear my sibling's pending fee balance to enable her sit for her end of semester examination that is due in a week's time.

I would like to thank the lenders for ensuring my funding comes through and I will endeavor to keep and maintain positive credit history since this form of kindness is not to be taken for granted. This is much appreciated.

Loan to buy maize seed

Amos, I'm really sorry to hear about your crops being destroyed by the nearby elephants :-(

Its probably worth popping the zidisha team a message... They might be able to pause things till you get back on your feet? & Can also likely lower your repayment amount, & restructure your loan so you can just pick it up from here? Just pop them a msg & ask for some help :-)

Wishing you all the best... Hope you have some better luck :-) Emma from Australia.
