Laptops for sale and other merchandise

Hello Endang, we are all rooting for your health, happiness and success.

Laptops for sale and other merchandise

My daughter was sad because she could not celebrate graduation with her friends. But surely it must "make peace and be patient" with the current situation. Even for the next level of school, there is still no certainty of going to junior high school, which is because schools are still closed. For my online business, it was very affected because the stock of goods was almost gone while there were no goods at the supplier because the workers were closed so that they temporarily stopped producing goods. Hopefully this virus outbreak passes quickly so that things can return to normal as usual. Always be healthy for Joshi, Joost, all lenders and Zidisha management, God bless you all, Ameninn.

Putri saya sedih karena tidak dapat merayakan kelulusan bersama teman-temannya. Namun tentunya memang harus 'berdamai dan bersabar' dengan situasi saat ini. Untuk jenjang sekolah selanjutnya pun masih belum dapat kepastian akan meneruskan ke sekolah menengah pertama yang mana karena sekolah sekolah masih diliburkan.

Untuk usaha online saya, sangat terpengaruh karena stok barang hampir habis sedangkan tidak ada barang di supplier karena para pekerja diliburkan sehingga sementara waktu berhenti produksi barang.

Mudah-mudahan wabah virus ini cepat berlalu sehingga keadaan bisa kembali normal seperti biasanya.

Sehat-sehat selalu untuk Joshi, Joost, para pemberi pinjaman semuanya serta manajemen Zidisha, Tuhan memberkati kalian semua, amiinn.

Solar energy kiosks

Hello Paul, Jonathan, Melkmom and Johannes!

Hello to all my wonderful lenders! Thank you so much for your trust and confidence in me!

Last week I adjusted my loan due to some works that we are doing
to establish an energy kiosk that we are setting up in Siamatika village. The works are not yet completed.

However, this week I managed to increase revenues of one of the energy kiosk by about 5% by relocating it and placing it on a more busy route! This has enabled to raise all the funds to complete repayment of my loan! Am so happy!

Thank you to all my wonderful lenders and I hope that you will participate in my next loan.

Stay safe and healthy!
