Thank you family, Zidisha is a God sent, ever since I joined this family in 2015 I have seen incremental records of business. I will buy baking flour, nut meg, margarine, baking equipment all of that in bulk quantity. Because business is good I do make sales of 800 Ghana cedis a day and makes a profit of 120 a day. Am even planing to add a mini snacks and pastries to my already moving baking business. I do pay for my children's fees and even cater for my other siblings.

Using the loan I was given I used it to buy 40 litres of cooking oil,2 bales of wheat flour, 2 bales of maize flour,snacks and juices that are liked by the customers around my business.
The purchase has increased what I have in the stock and has made a big difference in the business by insuring that people don't miss what they need.
Atleast my young girls go to school because even their fees is paid in time before they are sent home for money.
I would like to thank my leaders for the good work they are doing of helping the people and may God bless them.
My regards to all.

am so grateful for the loan. it has made me to go a step forward.
I purchased ten kilograms of rice. it has made a very big difference in my business because i bought the high quality rice which is used by most people and its price is affordable.
my business earning has now increased by at least 50 percent.
I have used the increased earning to buy paraffin oil because it s demanded every day and we sell in small quality depending on the amount the customers requires.

And this is one of the typical Tana Toraja cakes, Deppa Tori, which is made from rice flour and brown sugar is incomplete, it seems that if you go to Tana Toraja, you don"t have to eat it as souvenirs :)
