Purchase land & help improve food security

My bananas have started producing, my pawpaw trees too. I have harvested plenty of peas. I have dug holes for kales,cabbage and spinach, and am still digging to fill the whole garden. I bought four goats at USD 40 in total though they don't do good with plants/trees in the garden. Just that I got them at a cheaper price. I have plenty of food for my two cows. Though I have already sold the big one at USD 240 making a profit of USD 140. I sold to clear some of the many loans I had. But the owner still asked me to stay with it. That's the current progress. I now need to source cash to build a permanent residential unit and buy a plastic water tank.I have a quotation for a water tank of 5000litres at USD 340. This is one of my big basic want.

Receipt-printer counter scale

Like my history explains ,i am a good business partner who wants to help and survive this facility. Alot is happening in my business like aquiring more equipments which help my business. Today we got a liding door display freezer ,a good second hand and two weeks ago we managed to make half payment to a reciept counter scale of which now we need a printer.This counter scale is coming from a statutory engaged organisation as a way of monitoring businesses and we are very happy to have gotten such a unit because even gorvernment inspectors shall give as prefference.

Printer paper for bulk photocopying

I bought printing papers that am now supplying to two private schools. This is as a result of the zidisha family giving me a loan to start the supply. My life is completely in a different level. I can now afford to pay my kids school fees at least. May God bless the zidisha family. AMEN

Provisions shop

I will at this time wish to buy more a the goods I sell for a reason that demand has risen hence I have to go to the market about three times in a week to replenish stocks which ties up my profit. So I believe bulk purchase will help me save cost.
This will make a difference because it will enhance customer satisfaction as well as cost of transportation. I forecast to have a profit margin of about ten percent.
This increased earnings will be reinvested

Additional second-hand clothes for my clothing business

Greetings lenders. I am glad Zidisha has made me a businessperson. With the loan that I last received, I was able to increase my stock and subsequently the profits. Added to this was the fact that the loan was a booster, in terms of helping me cover business expenses such as rent payment for my business stall. Without the money from Zidisha, it would have not been easy for me to transform from hawking to the extent of opening my ow stall.
The loan i received from Zidisha not only helped me expand my business but it also taught me why it is important to save. With the weekly installments that I was expected to pay throughout the repayment period, I was able to develop financial consciousness in my operations, Thanks to Zidisha. The loans from Zidisha make me become responsible in a great way.

Purchasing equipment & stocking inventory

I would like to give great thanks to my lenders for making my plans realizable through this micro-lending plan. I have been able to use the past loan facilities to foot my internet connection and power bills, which support my online freelancing venture. I plan to use the net loan facility to get a wireless Mi-Fi connection equipment for my internet connection so as to enable the people that we work with to share the work space and connection without the need of everyone having their own modem. I hope that as the facility increases I will be able to use it to procure more equipment and software to facilitate my online work. Thanks a lot Zidisha and all the lenders that have made this possible for me.

Order hangtag

good evening sir, thank you for helping me with capital and trust in me, the money I gave you, I bought my business equipment, a press machine to install buttons and paper material, paper is the main ingredient in my business, I I usually buy kiloan paper to make it cheaper in production costs, to pursue competitiveness I chose kiloan paper, it does not affect the quality of paper, for small businesses like me, kiloan paper is very helpful, because it can reduce production costs by around 20%. now the price of new paper is Rp. 4,300 / pcs / plano, and the price of kiloan paper is Rp. 9,000 / kg. once production I can use 100kg of paper. that"s a story about a business that I have engaged in. In the future, I will tell you more. thank you for trusting me. this is the production of today.

Dear lenders,

Kemarin, uang pinjaman telah saya pergunakan untuk membeli Laptop, tinta printer dan beberapa variasi baju-baju rumahan. Stok celana legging anak-anak di supplier, barangnya masih kosong sehingga saya belum membelinya, mudah-mudahan minggu depan sudah ada sehingga saya dapat membeli legging anak-anak tersebut.

Saya harap stok barang yang saat ini ada pada saya, cepat terjual sehingga saya bisa mendapatkan keuntungan lebih untuk membeli kembali variasi-variasi lainnya dengan lebih banyak lagi.

Terimakasih kepada semua pemberi pinjaman saya, kalian semua membuat hari-hari kami sangat menyenangkan. Semoga anda semua selalu bahagia dan sehat.
