Broiler chicken farming

Hello my dear lenders.

Am so grateful to the kindness ,humility and support you have accorded to me.
The previous loan amount helped me hugely in that I boosted it with my savings and was able to acquire good feeders , drinkers and vaccination for my broilers.
Hence, I didn't have a high risk of broilers dying. The return on investment stood at 50%.
Going forward, am glad to report that I no longer have problems with finding a market for my broilers as was the case previously. I have a good network connection and reliable clients that am struggling to fully satisfy.
I kindly request you to lend me the amount stated above to boost my savings so that I can increase the number of broilers I keep by 50birds.
Thank you in Anticipation.

Solar lanterns for harvest time

HAPPY 2019 TO ALL MY LENDERS!

2018 has been a year of impact! A year that will go in our history for distributing more solar lanterns to people who need them the most. A year when i concentrated much on listening to customers needs and working to try and deliver life changing products to the most remotest communities of Eastern Province. A year when i got stuck the most with my car while working around the clock to reach the villages that have been left behind.

As i was going through the pictures we get from the field, i came across the picture i have attached. Regina told me how a solar lantern has changed her life. listening to Regina, a simple solar lantern made it possible for her to embark on saving the money he used to buy paraffin so that she can buy enough farming inputs. This year, Regina has planted 2 hectares of land compared to the previous year when she only planted 1 hectare . All thanks goes to the solar lantern. People ask me how? With solar lanterns, women are able to save from buying paraffin to light their huts. An annual saving of between $30-80!. Regina thanked our Rent to Own model for making it possible to own a solar lantern.

For us, we say thank you to all our lenders for making it possible to impact Regina's life. We also extend our thanks to Zidisha for providing this platform for entrepreneurs. Together, lets reach more women and girls with a solar lantern that rekindle hope and create opportunities for them!

Happy 2019 to all my lenders and Zidisha Team!

Farm mechanization

Hi dear Zidisha lenders. The last loan you gave me went on purchase of chicken nipple drinkers and a pipe. This is to help me install a water system where the chicken use bipples instead of waterers . The waterers eat on our time because we have to keep refilling the m every now and then and this is cumbersome. The chicken sometimes tip them over when there is little waer remaining and this wets the chicken coop causing moulds to build up if not cleaned immediately.It actually is hectic and cumbersome and needs alot of manpower. Spread of diseases isalso very fast. The water system I eant to install will help curb on diseases and extra manpower that eats into profits. All I need to complete the system is a small water tank and voila, my technician can install it.The last loan was not enough to buy all the gadgets needed. But so far I can smile because I have the nipples and pipe

Business expansion loan

Hello, my dear lenders,
I sincerely lack the words to thank. I would sincerely like to express my gratitude for the invaluable assistance that you accorded me when you supported my cause. I had tried many other online lending platforms in vain. For this reason, feel highly appreciated. For the two times you've lent me, I have been able to expand my business inventory. With this, my profit margin has gradually increased. I believe with more lending, my inventory will realize the break-even level to meet rudimentary operational costs. I will upload photos of inventories next time I report back.
Thanks and thanks once more. God bless
