Beans & kola nuts sale

well it hasn't been easy, i started with Beans, at some point ventured into kola nuts, made some losses, and was able to catch up again. At a point i thought it was not going to work but thank God put in extra efforts, went the extra mile of collecting extra goods and paying back after sales. Today i am so happy cos i can also give out commodities to smaller traders and wait for them to bring payments. Thanks to you my lenders and thanks to Zidisha that was patient with me even when repayments became slow. I wouldn't be where i am without you. My next consistent comes in next week, will make pictures available

Wow and congratulations to me !! Though it was tough through the unprecedented low and high season but i managed to repay the loan . For starters at the beginning there was a slight delay in the disbursement of the loan but when I got the money I wasted no time and worked with my suppliers to ensure that my project of the anticipated expansion of the meeting hall/ conference room for my guest house was constructed and thereafter in a few months after completion I embarked on marketing the new facility conference hall to the local community that included women groups, local government as well as NGOs who have started using the facility/ conference hall for their meetings and to date i am realizing extra additional income for my guest house and this is has enabled my guest house to be a fully fledged hotel thanks to Zidisha community.

Efficiency, product line and service provision improvement

Dear Zidisha lenders, kindly receive my warm and happy greetings as I begin by thanking you for the last loan you gave to me. I have faithfully completed my payments for it.
The loan has helped me grow twofold. I managed to purchase some machines that increased capacity and efficiency that has increased my profits by an estimated 30%. In this, I am motivated to increase my staff by one, as well as refurbish the premises so as to handle an increased client flow and maintain efficiency. Ideally, this will enable me take on a second member of the community as a member of staff.

This last loan has been so encouraging, as for the first time in a while, my son has gone through 3 semesters without any hiccups as regards school fees and has not therefore been sent home for lack of the same. This has led to an improved performance academically on his part. For this, I am extremely grateful.
Finally, and in brief, I wish to employ the new loan's funds in strategies that will make a brand of this business, looking long term.

Thank you for making a positive impact in my life, and in return that of my family and those who depend on me. On my part, I promise to continue being prompt and faithful in servicing my loan. May God bless you all and the entire Zidisha family!
