Sewing business expansion

Good afternoon my generous lenders. Hope everybody is doing great by the grace of God? I think it is about time I once again update you on the loan funds. My business is gradually doing fine as profit margin has increased more than 50%. This increase in profit and the support from my husband's salary will help me pay the next loan when I finish paying for this current one.
The loan funds received so far have been used to make installment payments of the five(5) modern sewing machines I am in process of buying to expand and setup an entrepreneurial centre to train young girls as entrepreneurs in the area of sewing.

Glass screen protectors for smartphones

Thank you for the reply! It just shows how much we have in common, despite the miles (kilometers) between us... Tony Robbins has been one of the major influences on my personal and business life!! I have studied him since probably before you were born (more than 30 years), and his ideas and techniques are INCREDIBLY powerful! I have also studied Steve, Jack, and Lisa (I'm assuming you mean Lisa Nichols?), who recently gave a deeply inspiring presentation to a Digital Marketing group I'm a part of. I didn't recognize the name Prince EA, but I watched a video of his and immediately realized I had seen an interview with him and was very impressed with his passion. So Nick Vujicic is the only one I hadn't heard of... and he is now on my list to watch in the next couple of days. I'm glad to be learning from you! :-) I don't mean to take too much of your time (and thank you again for your thorough response to my last question!), but if you have a couple of videos of local entrepreneurs in your country, I would love to see those as well. It's just a matter of time before there's a video about you, right? Or is there already?! :-)

Thank you, my friend!

The book that interest me most is “Awaken the giant within”
The book cover strategies for improving Virtually every area in life. It thought me how to find confidence to take control of life and make change a reality. Because change is the only constant thing. Getting the right attitude and positive mind set is essential in personal development and self confidence. Ultimately the book is about having belief in your self and your effort. It cover more on realizing your goal to develop positive mental habits. I also watch video of prince ea, Steve Harvey, Jack ma, Lisa Nicholas, Nick vujicic lot each morning on my way to work. I also Watch success stories of local entrepreneurs in my country on how they started and how they were able to build upon till now. I love to know more and share my experience with others. Hope to hear from you.

Locally made face masks for sale

Dear Jenny,

good luck with your business. Very commendable from you to help your community to stop spreading the virus!

Just out of curiosity: What mask do you sell? Professional surgical mask or FFP masks?
If you think cloth masks may be appropriate and more accepted, there are good sewing instructions and pattern to produce community masks, e. g.

And have you thought about adding hand disinfectant or liquid soap to your offering? This is another piece in the puzzle to fight Covid-19 and also helps with hygiene in general.

Lastly, I find the WHO information for the general public very useful:
They include ready-to-print posters

Maybe you can put some of these on display to educate the community about how to fight Corona.

Stay safe!

Kind regards from Switzerland,

Buying an interlocking block-making machine

My business has been Soo different since I got the last zidisha loan. Using the loan, I bought renting wheelbarrows. I took this decision after knowing that in most construction sites there is no enough wheelbarrows because people feer to buy more and dispose them in few days of work. So they find it better to rent. This business is going well. The increased amount of profit is used to widen the small scale farming and to help raise the family. The family is doing well. We are happy for zidisha to help us. Thank you lenders.
