Photocopying and printing services

I can say many things related to funding at Zidisha, apart from the easy process, it also guarantees the key trust of this program. I am a worker in the printing service sector, from the first project I got capital to purchase HVS paper to expedite my photocopying service business. From these funds I get a net return of around 20%, and I invest it again to purchase business materials, so that capital assets continue to increase, and this is what I do little by little. in the end I get capital assets in accordance with the amount of funds obtained from zidisha (capital + assets) in a ratio of 1: 1. Apart from getting the capital that I have paid off, I get assets equal to that capital. thanks to Zidisha, for the next project, hopefully it can expedite my business, especially in the field of photocopying and printing services.

Banyak hal yang dapat saya sampaikan terkait dengan pendanaan di Zidisha, selain proses mudah juga jaminan kepercayaan kunci dari program ini.
Saya adalah pekerja dibidang jasa percetakan, dari proyek yang pertama saya mendapatkan modal untuk pembelian kertas HVS guna memperlancar usaha jasa fotokopi yang saya jalani.

Dari dana tersebut saya memperoleh hasil bersih kisaaran 20%, dan itu saya investasikan lagi untuk pembelian bahan usaha, sehingga aset modal terus bertambah, dan ini yang saya lakukan secara terus sedikit demi sedikit. pada akhirnya saya mendapatkan aset modal sesuai dengan jumlah Dana yang diperoleh dari zidisha (modal+aset) berbanding 1 : 1. Selain mendapatkan modal yang sudah saya lunasi, saya mendapatkan aset yang sama sebesar modal tersebut.

terima kasih kepada Zidisha, untuk proyek berikutnya semoga bisa memperlancar usaha saya, utamanya dibidang jasa fotokopi dan percetakan.

Buying tomato & spinach seeds for my farm

I say thank you alot for all the members who funded my project and made it possible for me to achieve my goal.

Purchase of baking flour

Kids in my neighborhood are now calling me 'Dada Kaimati'. loosely translated, that is 'The Croissant Lady'. I am mastering the craft and in my small ways, running with the enterprise. In a day, I make about $4 in sales and earn a profit of $ 0.8. I am still not factoring in my salary. That would reduce the profits I earn.

I am thankfully not paying rent or electricity, so my overhead costs appear less for now. I believe the future will be bright.
