Loan to boost my office supplies inventory

I am now approaching the end of my loan repayment and I must say it has been a good experience. I was given this loan towards the end of March this year and it has been of great help to me. I had no prior experience of borrowing credit due to strict and hard to meet conditions set by local lenders. Initially I was a bit sceptical about Zidisha because I thought it was a hoax or maybe they have other hidden charges. I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong. Not only did I get my money within a very short time, but I realized there were no hidden charges.

I have paid my loan faithfully for the last 6 months and I am now planning to apply for a second loan as soon I finish the current one. I will remain faithful to my lenders and I believe with your support, I will move my business to great heights.

Help me teach and sell my transcription service

I would like to reschedule my loan. I'm expanding my business by opening a training college and due to the expansion I will take a short break as funds will be channeled to the expansion phase and once I've finished setting up the training center I will proceed with the repayments. The training center I am opening will be operational in three weeks time and will help educate and empower youths to be able to do transcription jobs from home and be able to earn some income.

Hi Christy!
Thank you for your message. I trust you are well. Yes, things are getting better. We haven't had any more insecurity incidents. Considering the clients we received last month, business is picking up and we are optimistic. Moreover, UK has lifted it's travel advisory and that will really help to boost international arrivals to Kenya. We really hope for the best! Thank you.
Muttai.
