Motorbike to ferry eggs/cereals from farm to my store.

Hello lenders hope you are fine,here in Kenya am doing great.
The motorbike that I bought courtesy of the loan I received from Zidisha has really transformed my life and those who depend on me.
Since I bought the motorbike my sales for eggs has increased before I was selling 40 trays of eggs per week,but today I sell over 70 trays per DAY since I now do supply of eggs using the motorbike.
This made my stock of eggs to look very little, but through my trust and faith which zidisha community found in me,I got a supplier of eggs who has also trusted me and he now gives me eggs worthy 1000US dollars and above,I sale them and then pay him.
My lenders with the aid of the motorbike it makes me sale 500 trays of eggs in one week.
This has made my profit to increase to 100 US dollars in a week.
But my wish and prayer is to buy those eggs at CASH ,and my plan to buy them on cash is through repaying my current loan then Apply for another one that will enable buy my eggs on cash.
My lenders I have faith that you will support me financially again.
God bless you all.
