Loan for university admission fees and laptop

Hello dear lenders, am very sorry for my inactive lately. Things didn't go as planned, a lot of bad unforeseen issues going on in my life currently but with God all things are possible. I know that the road to success is never smooth, am never given up yet. If plan A didn't work, I would go for plan B. Would do everything possible to finish paying this loan than put my plan B on the map.

My plan B is to go to a driven school and get trained as a professional commercial driver, get my driven license then get a kia picanto of my own and use it to work. I would surely need your unconditional support to bring this to reality.

Kindly don't stop supporting me please.
Thank you.

Mobile phone money transfer services (m-pesa)

Thanks for the loan. This money I will put it in my mpesa float as stock for my mobile phone money services.

This Will at least help me to make sure that my customers have the money services whenever they want. Mostly my customers will withdraw cash from my shop or deposit cash. And when there no enough cash and electric money, I send some of them away. With this loan, I will increase the number of customers I serve and reduce those I send away.

Thanks for the loan, may the good Lord Jesus continue to keep you safe and happy.

Install internet in the new business premises

Hey Emma

Thanks a lot for your loan! We have not yet actively started seeing cancer patients. We are currently only running the referral lab and raising money to put up a chemotherapy unit.

I am a firm believer that nutrition is fundamental in recovery from any disease and especially cancer. It feels nice to know that there is someone out there who cares about this too! We plan to use an approach called integrative medicine that looks at the patient as a whole taking into consideration all the determinant of disease. In short we plan to treat the patient not the disease.

Have a good one and thanks again for your support and your kind words

Payment of rent

Hello distinguished lenders, Good evening,afternoon, and morning to you all depending on your location.

It's obvious I'm in arrears of two installment with a total figure of GHS 200.00.

I have a little challenge with cash for this past few weeks and that's why I have not been able to make repayment.

I would like to assure all lenders that, this is not total negligence on my part but rather the recent financial constrain faced. I will pay everything arrears in the few weeks to come. I hope this message calms you.

I share Zidisha's vision, I'm a credible member and wish to maintain my credibility established in the past; I can't afford to ruin that.

Thank you
