To start with I used my loan to finance a school business.I produced the posters to invite the students from low income background for evening tuitions. The first day, I received 13 learners. I taught them myself.The following day I received 17 students.After a week I had about 34 high school students and 5 primary school kids.

By this time, I had started to charge them kes 20 per day for facilation.I also hired 4 teachers to help me.
From the above amount of money, I am able to save for the loan repayment.

I would like to pay early so that I reborrow to increase my working capital.
