To buy televisions to sell in my employer's shop

I am so sorry to hear that this bad practice that some employers engage in over there has happened to you, as well. :(

I'm sure that your lenders understand that what happened to you was out of your control, and that as soon as you do find and receive new income, that you will resume making payments here. In the meantime, please try not to stress too much about here, as we trust you that you will begin your repayments again, as soon as you can.

I'm saying a prayer for you to find a better employer soon.

Best wishes, and as always, please stay safe.

To buy televisions to sell in my employer's shop

Thanks for caring, That is exactly what happened to me and my friend in the job, we had to quit because we were spending the little money we had saved on transportation and food without getting paid at the end of the month. The employer told us to keep working and he would pay all default months money at once but we can't trust that so we stopped.
i will surely get a job early this month and will start payments.
Thanks and sorry for the defaults.

Vegetable farming

Thanks Dave
It's true that solar is the best and cheaper option to go for at the farm. The initial costs of buying the needed solar system equipments is too expensive in my country Zambia. Yes that is the way to go in the near future.
Great I appreciate your input fellow farmer.

To buy televisions to sell in my employer's shop

Thank you for updating your lenders about your current situation.

I'm curious, Agnes, did you quit your job because your employer didn't pay you on time or maybe even not at all for weeks or even months in a row? I know people in your country who have had that experience, in some cases even with big and so-called "reputable" companies, and also with no explanation or apology to the employees at all, and even with no indication told to the employees of when the companies would be doing right by them. These individuals now are searching for a reliable employer, and at least they currently are financially ahead because of not having to spend money five to six days per week anymore on the costs of transportation to and from a deadbeat employer, or the costs of meals from food stalls near the company at lunchtime, too.

My very best wishes to them and to you, too.

Please stay safe.
