Adding refrigerator to restaurant business

I am happy that I have managed to clear my loan without a hitch. I am amazed by the flexibility of Zidisha loan and the low interest. I believe I now have a partner I can rely on for my business growth. I managed to purchase a refrigerator with my first loan and this changed the way I do business drastically. It brought food wastage to an end as I would throw away food that was not consumed due to hot weather here. I now even buy food such as vegetables and fruits in large quantities and store them under refrigeration. I get discounts on these items thus making good savings. Overall, my profitability has gone up – thanks to you lenders.

Application for $300 (ghs 938) for inventory for my boutique

I wish to once again thank lenders for the offer been done me.about a week ago I received my first credit loan of $100 (GHS 319).The money was used for inventory in my clothing business just as i indicated in my loan application.my first repayment will be on Sunday the 8th of February, 2015.My weekly repayment of my loan is $10.I am happy to announce that it I will review my repayment to a much higher amount before my first installment, this is because business was vibrant during my trek to sell at the festival.I came back this evening and hopefully I will go for new stocks on Friday to various markets.Market has been good for me.Thanks to the zidisha team and lenders,especially lenders who funded my loan.I say God bless u.Beyond the sky is the limit for sense and Degree.my 2015 resolution is to open a clothing retail outlet by the second quarter of this year so I will commit myself to paying my loan on time so I could progress to apply for higher loan facilities.I believe with hardwork, determination, perseverance,business diversification etc the name of my business will be rolling on Tv screen because zidisha empowered young graduates like me through a loan facility to grow our business.
Hopefully very soon I will apply to be a volunteer mentor to help educate and empower the youth to take initiatives.
Thank you.

House upgrade

Helo Zidisha Lenders I am glad to inform you that my business has started picking up.

So I hope you will continue lending me a helping hand till I achieve my ambitions. I will always be great-full to the Zidisha team for improving my economic standards, and also living standards. God Bless You abundantly. Yours Godfrey
