Dear Don, Johannes and William,
Thank you so much for lending your money to my business. You have lent me not once not twice, and therefore I want to dedicate the success in my business to you my beloved lenders.
This time I have received ksh 9920, which I have used to buy 132 litres of used cooking oil, which is the main raw material I use in my soap making project. That quantity of oil will make 250 pieces of 1kg bar soaps, which is sold at ksh 25000 at retail price.
Thank you so much,
Denis Otieno.

Motorbike to ferry eggs/cereals from farm to my store.

Hello lenders hope you are fine,here in Kenya am doing great.
The motorbike that I bought courtesy of the loan I received from Zidisha has really transformed my life and those who depend on me.
Since I bought the motorbike my sales for eggs has increased before I was selling 40 trays of eggs per week,but today I sell over 70 trays per DAY since I now do supply of eggs using the motorbike.
This made my stock of eggs to look very little, but through my trust and faith which zidisha community found in me,I got a supplier of eggs who has also trusted me and he now gives me eggs worthy 1000US dollars and above,I sale them and then pay him.
My lenders with the aid of the motorbike it makes me sale 500 trays of eggs in one week.
This has made my profit to increase to 100 US dollars in a week.
But my wish and prayer is to buy those eggs at CASH ,and my plan to buy them on cash is through repaying my current loan then Apply for another one that will enable buy my eggs on cash.
My lenders I have faith that you will support me financially again.
God bless you all.

Revamp of my restaurant to get more customers

Hi Margaret,
Than you for the great advice, i will take it into consideration. I think we may have to do an audit of our dishes, the cost of ingredients, and the mark-up on each item and calculate what we are making per dish while including all the condiments used, such as ketchup or parmesan cheese added at the table.

We will also take into account all our costs, including labour, rent, cleaning, supplies, and utility bills. Estimate an average number of monthly customers, using previous months’ till takings if we're unsure of the figure, plus how much people spend on average. With these numbers to hand i think we should be able to work out how much profit we’re making on individual recipes, and overall. Im sure having all this information in mind will help us see what part to focus on during the revamp. For now, i will use the money to purchase more comfy chairs for my customers. I will start with two first. Thank you so much
