I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the financial support provided for my irrigation project. Thanks to your funding, I have successfully completed the project, which has significantly transformed my agricultural practices.

Borewell & gardening tools

Am applying for this funds to drill the borewell at the farming site and the gardening tools to be helping me in cultivating the land. For 2023 to 2024, rain has been a great challenge hence most crop dried up due inadequate rain. Hence the borewell will benefit me a lot by providing adequate water to the crops and as for the gardening tools, will benefit me by cultivating the land by creating more necessary beds for vegetable crops as demand in increasing from my customers whom I supply these vegetables. Currently my turn over profits is at ZMW 20,000 and once I drill a borewell, I will increase the production of vegetables to meet the demand from the customers. Thank you so much my lenders for supporting me.

I am so delighted to receive a message that my project which was posted the other day has been fully funded. As I had explained earlier on the funds on this project is to facilitate my son's tuition fees including clearing last term's arrears upon topping up with what I have. This will help me avoid my son being send home by the school authorities from time to time at the same time it will give me ample time and peace of mind to look for a way to get other sources of money, It may be little but the crucial part of it is now done. I am really so much grateful and even lack words to express my gratitude to everybody who made this project successful. I particularly thank Mr. Stephen who fully funded this project and tell him that he is blessed beyond borders and may God give you more since you are so much philanthropic and for being with a big heart to even assist those whom you even don't know! I promise to utilize the same as promised and pay back in time sir, thank you so much and be blessed more!
I also do not forget the admins in this platform and the all of Zidisha fraternity for your effort to connect people especially with common interest through this platform and would like to say ' asanteni sana, mungu azidishe kunufaisha nyinyi kila wakati'. Thanks all and may God bless you!

Tomato business

My tomato business is going well so far, I have a few customers but because it's still something new in the market, it's not easy to convince people who actually believe in their own conclusion. One-day I woke up and I was a diabetic patient, you know how doctors give a list of dos and cons, I tried blended tomatoes but my food still didn't taste well, then an idea popped up and after my first trial, I never stopped and mostly made it for my own use, but I realized it can't benefit everyone especially those with medical conditions who need to eat simple meals. My only challenge is getting the right type of tomatoes, but I'm working on the solution which I believe I'll soon achieve it through your help, thanks again for your help. Zidisha has given me a reason to keep dreaming and working towards any impossible projects I have in mind, you are truly your brothers keeper. Each and everyone of you have made my dream come true. Thank you
