Purchase of inventory for my provisions shop

Re: "...I have been able to employ at least two people in my community and also help in providing financial aid to them..."

You are a sweetheart. :)
The world needs more of its people to be like you!

In so many cases, the reality is that a job (or jobs) and a loan (or loans) are not necessarily enough to make ends meet, even just for the basics of life, as too many people in this world know only too well.

I know that in your country, for example, new university graduates are expected to work for one year in a "National Service" job, which typically pays only enough for transportation to and from work. And then, after that, a first real job doesn't usually pay very much more, especially if any more on-the-job training is expected, which, over there, can last for up to another year.

Add to that the fact that it's not unusual for employers over there to not always pay their employees on time, and sometimes some don't pay anything at all for weeks or months on end.

We thought it was bad over here, where starting wages and salaries have stagnated for at least the past 25 years, while prices of just about everything have risen steadily. Most people just starting out in most types of jobs, over here, currently get paid the same starting wage or salary that people got paid 25+ years ago, despite that the cost of living has skyrocketed in that amount of time (and despite that the gap between what a C.E.O. gets paid and what most employees each get paid has widened by an enormous amount, due solely to corporate greed, at least in most larger corporations).

Anyway, and, before that, it already had become necessary for there to be at least two incomes per household, whereas during the first nineteen years of my life experience, in most households it was only the man of the house who worked for a direct paycheck (and that paycheck easily more than covered all of the household expenses, as well as many extras, including travel during one or two annual vacations, etc., without any need for any debt other than maybe a house mortgage).

The reality is that practically everywhere in the world, and most especially for people just starting out, it has been getting more and more difficult for most households to make ends meet, even just to cover the most basic of living expenses.

So, thank you for helping others, to whatever extent that you can.

Galatians 6:2: "Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."

James 2:14-17: "...If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and filled,' without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."

Luke 3:11: "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him [or her] who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."

Luke 12:33-34: "Sell your possessions, and give to the needy..."
(sell some, not all... obviously, don't sell what you yourself actually need... but regularly take stock of what you don't use, don't need, and that you feel fairly sure you won't need, and sell those items and use that money to help someone who truly is in need, more so than you, or donate those items directly to people who truly do need those items more than you, or to organizations that act with integrity to get those items to the other people)

Matthew 6:24: "No one can serve two masters, for either he [or she] will hate the one [God] and love the other [money], or he [or she] will be devoted to the one [God] and despise the other [the love of money; i.e., greed]. You cannot serve [both] God and [the love of] money."

Philippians 2:4: "Let each of you look not only to his [or her] own interests, but also to the interests of others."

Proverbs 14:31: "Whoever oppresses a poor man [or a poor woman] shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is generous to the needy honors God."

Proverbs 17:5: "Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he [or she] who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished."

Proverbs 22:16: "Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his [or her] own wealth... will only come to poverty."

Proverbs 28:27: "Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he [or she] who hides his [or her] eyes will get many a curse."

(...*gives* to the poor, not just *lends*... I love Zidisha's new "Pay-It-Forward" program: [forum-thread/11056], in which we from non-Zidisha countries give some of our excess, and then you in countries that Zidisha serves also give to others in countries that Zidisha serves, by helping with some of your profits to fund other "Pay-It-Forward" projects, too... this is the best of Zidisha, IMHO) :)

1 Timothy 6:17-19: "As for the rich... charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God... do good... be rich in good works... be generous and ready to share... take hold of that which is truly life."
