Hello Zidisha,
It is my belief that Zidisha is the best community I have ever known. My name was Hans but up to this moment it's changed from just Hans to a Happy Hans!

In today's world, happiness is something that everyone yearns for, even to dangerous grounds. This has not been in my case because I simply applied and your good lenders favored me.

This is just my second loan and the progress is clear. Believe it or not I have no problems paying for my wife's college fee because you solved my printing hardships and now I can concentrate in my business without stress!

I cant imagine how it will be when I reach the maximum lending amount. That and beyond is my goal.

Thank you so much, blessed lenders. I work hard because you have inspired me.

Yours, (Happy)Hans Ochola.

Dear Lenders, Julia Kurnia and the Entire Zidisha Family,
I wish to take this opportunity to express my thanks, joy, gratitude and happiness to what you have done to myself and my family.
For many years, I have been dreaming of having my own place here in Mombasa to call home but due to lack of sufficient funds, it was a challenge to realise this dream.
Now I am a very proud and happy man because you have helped me realise this long term dream. I now own my house which I constructed with your funds which you lend to me.
My spouse and children are more than happy too !! We will not be paying house rent any more which we have been doing since 2011...( I surely cant imagine this !)
I will now have more time to focus on my Recording Studio, improving the quality of life of my family and Education of my daughter and son. You have really came into my life at the appropriate time and I can therefore not take this for granted.
I wish you all the best with your families and in everything that you do. I also thank you for believing in me and funding my loan without any hesitation.
I believe you will still be there for me and all other borrower so that you continue helping us in changing our lives and that of our communities to the better.
On behalf of my family I say thank you again for making our life better and more worth living, thank you.
