Packing papers

I got my first Zidisha Loan on the 28th of July 2015. I did manage to buy good quality packing papers and I qualified for a wholesale discount. This has greatly reduce the amount of milk that used to go to waste due to leaking papers. This also improved on efficiency. I was initially using two or three papers while packing milk which was taking a bit of time, but as for now I just use one paper which is way much faster.
I have informed the surrounding business people and they have started buying the papers. Last week on the 30th July 2015 and so far I have sold 8 bundles. People are slowly getting to know that I do sell papers and I believe I will sell more than 50 bundles before the end of this week.
