Cow for dairy business

Dear Nikko, thanks for this message on behalf of the other lenders. It's very unfortunate for me, not my expectation to be in such a position of unpaid debts.
When you lent me the money I knew that I'll pay it quickly, unfortunately the unfolding of unexpected events have beat me severely down, but am optimistic, and as you said I purpose to remain positive.

1.Covid 19 did strike, tough economic times came

2. One of my workers plundered me and ran away with some money and stock.

3. I had to lay down workers for lack of enough pay...

These basically, besides other happenings have rendered me down.

Thank you so much for understanding, though am very, very sorry for these happenings.

But hopefully I will make by the help of God...

Best regards...

Nebart.

Cow for dairy business

Hello Nebart,

I want to let you know 2 important things.

1. Try to stay positive. I have read all your messages here, and see you mention several times you are "down, down".

We understand its tough economic times for everyone now. Certainly I am not angry with you and surely other lenders feel same way.

Having a positive attitude, is very helpful. Try to hold on to hope, this will get better.

2. Your communication with us is critical.

I have lent money to some others who also have not paid their loans fully yet.
But they have not said anything here.

If someone takes a loan, and has troubles, difficulty to pay on time, the worst thing to do, is to stay silent here.

We are patient,
We are understanding, and we have compassion for others.
I say "we" because I belive most of us are this way.

We came to join Zidisha as lenders, because we care about our "brothers & sisters" around the world, who also struggle to build a better future, the same as all of us.

When someone stops payments, and then stays quiet, not answering the phone etc. that shows a lack of respect for Zidisha, and their lenders.

Nebart, you are doing this the right way. Communicate with us to let us know you are having difficulties.

I have much respect for your honesty, please keep positive for the future as this will pass and better business days is coming.

Nikko.

Distributing safe birthing kits

Before raising a Loan on Zidisha, I was selling 3-5 Mama's Moments Maternity Kits per week. Right now, after the loans I have raised, I am able to resell 10+ Kits per week. My team has increased to two Customer Service Representatives who also help me with assembling these Kits on a Saturday. During the week, they help me with manning the Spaza (Booth) in Chawama and Kanyama West and also with extra deliveries to the community health volunteers who sell our Kits for income generation. So, there is a positive change not just in my life but also the lives of others. I believe that my Mama's Moments Maternity Kits are fulfilling their motto of (i) creating behavioural change for the pregnant mother by encouraging early antenatal booking
(ii) increasing male participation in ante natal and post natal services
(iii) ensuring a livelihood opportunity for the marginalized in society,
(iv) ensuring a flow of health information to the pregnant woman and provide for a safe delivery.

Acquiring food items for my cereals retail outlet

I appreciate your resilience. Covid has strongly affected each of us. Thanks for the update. You have my best, Jim

Acquiring food items for my cereals retail outlet

Hello Zidisha,

So, I have finally completed this loan. I am so excited because with its completion comes the opportunity to begin/expand something.

I have taken a really long time with this loan. We all know what happened. Just after I had invested the funds and I was yet to realize a tangible return, Corona started, and with it, a wave of uncertainty and fear.

To contain it, we had to close shop and stay home, and the requirement for technology to step in so that customers could order remotely and delivery streamlined.

This was not possible for me as I did not have the resources and had to completely close shop for an extended period. Fearing difficult times ahead, prudence dictated that i reduce my expenses, forcing me to close my shop to save on rent and instead, opt for selling my wares on foot from door to door.

Of course, things have eased up and the economy is picking up pace. The blow was huge, but we soldier on. I am ready to puck up the pieces and rebuild again.

The funds will therefore be used to source for rental premises pay a deposit and several months of rent, and for building up the premise with shelves and other fixtures.

Best,
Wairimu Gathii

I managed to buy the feed as well as vitamins for my chickens.
This time round,we a starting to sell and I'm so excited about it.
This has really increased my numbers and I intend increasing the number.
This has really made a difference in that I will manage and are saving some money to pay for my son who is going to college in January to do Bio Medical Sciences.
Without the help I'm getting ,I would not be able to have this opportunity..
I can see my son going to college.
My earnings have increased from K3,500 weekly to K5000+ weekly wen I'm selling and with the help I'm getting,I would like to make sure I have chickens regularly to improve with my sales as well as my workers also.
To mention,I would like to buy a bigger deep freezer for storage next time .
My desire is to open a relish shop by end of this year or early next year where I will be selling my full, half, quarter chickens.
I'm training to smoke chickens and this will be an added advantage to make sure that I add value and sell my products with better returns.
My achievements will be my son going to college.

Thank you my lenders and please continue helping me so that our lives and those of our families and workers improve.
Thank you
