I convey my thanks to you all for lending me my previous loan which turned out to be very helpful; I was able to purchase a new electric sewing machine for my business. As you all know using an electric appliance make things much easier thank the manual one. For this reason I was to speed up my clothing and school uniform production from 4 pieces a day to 10. This is a great achievement indeed which would not have realized without you good people. Thanks and may God bless you.

Hi Lenders,
I am grateful and thankful for your support since i joined Zidisha.
Me and my family, We have passed through tough moments in the past (2017) but I am happy to report to you that all situations are resolved and my business is stable. Last month I made a net income of KES 10,000 ($100) which I used to purchase a Windows smart phone for my wife worth KES 7,500 ($75) and I used the remaining amount to purchase clothes for our one year old daughter.
This month (FEB) I am estimating it to be a net profit of KES 15,000 ($150).
My long term plans are to purchase an acre of land and build a home for my family. I am relying on Zidisha to make this dream come true.
I also know I have not been prompt in repaying my previous loan but I am humbly asking for another chance to correct this and cleanse my repayment records.
In addition to that, there are few people I refereed who are in arrears. I have taken an initiative to visit them and ind out why. All of them have assured me that they will clear the outstanding balances before the month ends.
However, I have applied another loan two times without success am wondering what could be the problem. I have applied for the third time now and am still waiting for it to be published before its funded. Kindly advice.

I received the loan on time and I used it for the purchase of feeds and fowl pox vaccine. My birds have been laying eggs constantly and rarely do diseases affect them. The eggs that I have picked will be hatched at a nearby hatchery for the purpose of sale and increasing my stock.

To Mary . I answer yes. Farmers are asking for it very often. Mr Rusty Orner in a general way taught us the culture of the mushroom and especially SHIITAKE. His wife made us taste a dish that I present here in photo. I wanted you to be in my place for this tasted, so it was delicious.
Zidisha with his lenders gave meaning to my life. I already said it and I repeat it today.
