Hi Minata! I just wanted to wish you all the best in getting your loan funded. It sounds like sorrel leaves are an important vegetable. I wish we had them here in the U.S. so I could try them. Take good care of yourself and again, good luck with your loan!
Here is sandra and brenda that I am intending to sell soon

Thanks for keeping us informed and thanks for uploading the photos.
The fabrics look great! Is each piece enough to make one dress?
You know that now comes all the hard work of making all the dresses!
All the best
Happy valentines day to all of you Lenders and have a bless day.

I want to thank Zidisha and more so my lenders for trusting me and giving me their money to use. The money has ensured that my business runs smoothly even in this usually hard period that is the beginning of the year when I have to fulfill a number of obligations, like payment of school fees, etc. The money has enabled me to maintain my stock and use the profits to pay my side expenses. If Zidisha had not assisted me, I am sure I could have spent my working capital on personal expenses and therefore run down my business. THANK YOU so much for your assistance.

I had the opportunity to meet with Corsmas yesterday at his office near downtown Nairobi. There he spends his 9-5 or really 8-6 day job working as a manager for a transportation company. However in his off time he works on his own businesses, one where he sells bricks and the other he is the owner of his own bus service. He is very thankful for Zidisha lenders, since with the loans over the past year he has been able to repair his bus or "matatu" as it is called here. However after some time even the repairs were not enough to keep the old bus going, so he has sold it. Now he plans on buying a new bus hopefully with the help of Zidisha lenders. We went to the car yard where he showed me the bus he would like to purchase, and below are some photos.
Corsmas is one of the few borrowers I have met that was actually born and raised in Nairobi, though he still has strong ties to his parents' hometown in Kisumu County, around six hours from Nairobi. He is proud of his roots, which are of the Luo tribe, known to be great fishermen living on Lake Victoria. This is also the tribe of Barack Obama's father and Corsmas boasted that from his father's house he can walk down the road to get to Obama's grandmother's house where she still lives. This is also where his brick business operates from with the help of his partner and brother. They make the bricks manually with a recipe of soil, water and sun to dry them. Corsmas even lived in his village for a while twenty years ago, running in orphanage from his home.
Now he is looking forward to retiring from his career and pursuing his businesses with the help of Zidisha. The profits of his businesses will help him have a secure retirement and help out his youngest daughter with her education. He has four children total, two of which are working in Qatar. With his guidance all of his children are doing very well and so are the Zidisha members he mentors. In his free time Corsmas likes to watch football especially his team, Manchester United, and dance. He invited me to listen to some live music downtown at the Princess Hotel. Of course I accepted!

Dear lenders.it has been a great day today.work has been good BT a bit hectic since clients are many and drying their hair using a blowdrier only is such a task.but I know you will help me buy my drier so I can expand my business and the task will be easier.thank you and goodnight my zidisha family.
I am very grateful for the loan advancement. With the amount of money I received I was able to fund my websites.
I am an online entrepreneur and the money I received I used 90% of it on boosting my social media ads.
These Ads add value to my websites as they grant me more exposure. The more exposed they are, the more product/service I move. Through the adds and its only been four days, I have already seen a significant increase of organic traffic to my site and pretty soon I will start making sales.

I had a fantastic experience visiting Samuel today at his home and small store in a neighborhood of Nairobi. I visited both Samuel and his cousin, Dauglas (they share a grandfather) who is his mentor as well. These cousins stick together. Since Dauglas is looking to move out of the neighborhood he is in, Samuel has given him a place to stay as well as storage space for his business computer.
Samuel is a warm and caring guy. He is thrilled over the dramatic difference he has seen in his livelihood thanks to the loans from Zidisha lenders that have allowed him to invest in his store which sells DVDs and music CDs that he is able to burn from the internet. He has also been able to purchase a printer so he can book events as a photographer. He printed a couple of photos for me while he was there. One of which was picture of his 7 month old baby girl, Gloria. I was fortunate enough to meet her since Samuel so graciously welcomed me into his home, upstairs from the DVD shop. I also met his lovely wife Janet who sliced some mango for us during the visit.
For his dad, Samuel was supposed to be a doctor. However with the help of his cousin Dauglas, he was able to convince him to help in getting his degree in electronic engineering. Samuel's father was such an advocate for his education that when times were really tough he sold a piece of his land, so Samuel could continue his studies in Nairobi. Samuel is the eldest of six children, and he has inspired his younger siblings who are also gifted in mathematics.
LIke Dauglas, Samuel is optimistic. WIth the help of Zidisha he has seen his profits multiply and he one day hopes to rent a bigger space for his business which will guaranttee a bright future for his baby girl. I can say after being lucky enough to play with her today, she is definitely worth it!
