I have successfully made another repayment today August 17, 2018. I want to extend my most heartfelt appreciation to every lender especially to those who funded my loans since I joined Zidisha. It took the contribution of each of you on this team to create the tremendously successful Zidisha project all this while. I made great strides in the past semester on my semester projects and look forward for the upcoming semester. This wouldn't have been possible without your support. I am proud of each and every one of you and to be part of Zidisha community. I hope that the direction Zidisha vision has taken, will remain for the next generation as well. Once again, thank you to Director Julia and entire Zidisha Team, lenders and volunteers. God richly bless all of you.

I am in constant touch with my mentees advising them on how to take advantage of the numerous opportunities offered to them by zidisha to sustain and explain their businesses.
They are doing well with their repayments.
I am proud of my mentees.
I also thank zidisha for making me a mentor.
I will use the little experience I have acquired since joining zidisha to help grow the community in order to raise more entrepreneurs with expanded businesses in every community across the globe to reduce the ever increasing cancer of unemployment in every hamlet, village, developing as well as developed countries across the whole wide world.

My shop provides staple food and snacks, because the staple food is certainly needed by the community every day, the benefits I get are used for daily living needs. The loan funds I got to add to my merchandise so that my business was more developed.

Hello zidisha lenders,the vest have became a fashion due to climate change and it as been cold weather throughout the day. With my previous loan i bought more vests as required by customer of which i was buying at KES.75.00 and sell at KES. 120.00. The difference is great. The school opens next month the demand of vests for mostly boys is great!!!!!!The price of petrol mostly increase used in our country is hiked and therefore life is becoming expensive. The answer is business.
