Greetings Zidisha and lenders.
Yesterday it rained back down, the weather today is indeed difficult to predict.
Even so this morning we keep the spirit to work as usual because some brick orders waiting to be delivered soon.
The stock of raw materials is still stable and there are no obstacles so that production remains smooth, this is the raw material ready to be processed into if the dough is ready to be printed into pieces of raw bricks.
Thanks Zidisha. Thanks Lenders.

I used my loan to buy phone batteries and cover. one battery costs 2 Us dollars and I sold at 3 us dollars and one cover costs 1 us dollar and I sold at 2 us dollars. The purchase was so important to me as I was able to increase my stock, in total I have made a profit of around 70 dollars from the purchase and I used 45% to repay the loan, 30% I invested back and the remaining I used to to take care of my family. Thank you my lenders, my business is doing well.

“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.” a quote by George Herbert. Indeed it's true,the road to the dreams isn’t always easy to navigate, sometimes dotted with mountains to climb, obstacles to overcome and hard, mind-numbing times that will make someone who feel like quitting but someone has to remember that if you get lost along the way: Anything worth having doesn’t come easy, never turn back around, never give up. Thanks a lot to my lenders and Zidisha fraternity, through your support and help I have a story to tell others by using my example especially to those almost giving up in life, am proud with Zidisha and my lenders, though not there where I want to be but I know am on the way moving. Now my business is doing well, I can smile. Thank you.

Alhamdulillah my loan which yesterday has paid off a few days ago. I want to apply for another loan. This loan will I buy a new product stock at a price more expensive than yesterday. But the quality is equal to the price of millions. This later in the form of facial serum and health products made into a package. Many of the devotees because the benefits and bonuses are given. This purchase is very helpful to me because it can provide stock for buyers who ask for immediate goods. With these loans profits increased by 15%. Addition of income that I use to rotate capital for more capital can stock more goods. The family must be more happy when my sales succeed because it can help increase income. In my neighborhood a celebration will be held when the anniversary date of the village. There is a lot of entertainment and sales people. Alhamdulillah Thanks for donors and team zidisha smoga long life and healthy slalu. Smoga gives loan to anyone who needs it. Aamiin.

Alhamdulillah pinjaman saya yg kemaren sudah lunas beberapa hari yg lalu. Ini saya mau mengajukan pinjaman lagi. Pinjaman ini nanti akan saya beli kan stok produk yang baru dengan harga lebih mahal dari yang kemaren. Tapi kualitasnya sama dengan yang harga jutaan. Ini nanti berupa serum wajah dan produk kesehatan dijadikan 1 paket. Banyak peminatnya karna manfaat dan bonus yang dikasih. Pembelian ini sangat membantu saya karna dapat menyediakan stok untuk pembeli yang minta langsung ada barang. Dengan pinjaman ini keuntungan meningkat 15%. Penambahan pemasukan itu saya gunakan untuk memutar modal agar modal lebih banyak bisa stok barang lagi. Keluarga pastinya lebih senang ketika penjualan saya berhasil karna dapat membantu menambah pemasukan. Di lingkungan saya sebuah perayaan akan diadakan ketika tanggal hari jadi desa. Ada banyak hiburan dan orang jualan. Alhamdulillah Trimakasih untuk donatur dan tim zidisha smoga panjang umur dan sehat slalu. Smoga slalu memberikan pinjaman untuk siapa saja yg membutuhkan. Aamiin.
