To purchase sanitary pads, detergent and toiletries for sale

have not contributed to this loan but have been following you for some time now. What's remarkable is that this loan was for a community project and not just your individual business. To add icing to the cake, by paying off this loan fully in time, you have added to the credit risk fund pool thereby helping someone else with their Zidisha loan.

You have a very inspiring story. Keep it up. I certainly look forward to contribute to you next loan.

Loan repayment finally completed. This was my 5th loan with Zidisha and I felt very humble to say that I have never had a past due. Having joined Zidisha since April 2016 till today, I still maintained my 100% on-time payment. Always grateful to the Zidisha team and to all lenders for this wonderful opportunity. Opportunity that allow me to adjust my repayment such that I never have a past due in my loan repayment.
What else can I say to the many lenders who supported me all these years, I say BIG THANK YOU, for believing in my dream and supporting me. God bless you, protect and grant you all good health.

Acquire a shop for my natural health and beauty products

Dear lenders,
I am happy to report that I was able to secure a small shop through which I intend to sell my natural products. I managed to pay the first and last (deposit) rent for the shop and have it painted.
I am now seeking more funding to stock the shop, buy a weighing scale and packaging materials.
It will be a great stride in building my sales to have a retail outlet and to have a central position where clients will come. Having a shop will also build a clientele from walk-in customers and provide me with an opportunity to upsell when a customer comes to the shop.
