Hello wonderful lenders,
I am humbled to report this to you. Zidisha community as a whole is doing wonders around and specifically to me.
Ever since I got the amount I had requested as a loan to improve my business which includes selling of women articles like brass, bangles, necklaces and foot wares for both women and men It has been great since of the money I received I have been able to repay my loan with ease and also maintained my profits to cater for my household needs.
This has also made my partner develop confidence in Zidisha since he never imagined that one can acquire money online and be able to carry activities to the end without problems since he thought Zidisha was a scam kind of thing
He is now confident that Zidisha is real and now a great supporter of Zidisha.
