hello lenders,
once again i want to thank you for your contributions towards the growth of my business. my school is experiencing growth in every department especially the photocopy section which is a commercial activity to generate extra income for the school. because of your loan we have been able to aquire the lamination and binding machines and we want to add the sale of STATIONERY ( A4 REALM, NOTEBOOKS AND EXERCISE BOOKS, PENS, PENCILS , ERASERS ETC) as a way of expanding the business. i can assure you that the demand for these items in the school is very high and for that matter is economically viable business. due this we would need additional money to top up the little profit made from the photocopy section of the school to buy and stock these items.
the total cost of buying sizeable quantities of these items is 1,250 ghana cedis (313 USdollars). thank you for your support

Thank you Zidisha community and my lenders for my previous loan. I was able to use the funds to increase learning space by building two new classrooms. This way, I was able to accommodate more pupils in my school and this translated to more revenue. I was able to clear my loan on time and had some money left to cater for my expenses. I will be forever grateful!! Thanks

Up to now, zidisha lenders have been supportive enough. for example, i was able to build a house for my family and i rent no more, i got enough space to rear chicken and goats, now i do not buy water because i get is from the same house that i built, my children's school fees have been taken care of and they learn smoothly.
