The blessing isn't in my small contribution but in your labour and the improvement it makes to the community. I've received your first repayment and immediately reinvested it in another project. I hope to continue in this way to help more people.

hi ccs36. Sorry for the late reply. I have been very busy of late hence the delay. I started my uniform business and I have already delivered 50 sets to different school in the neighborhood. I will file a comprehensive report soon. Thank you for your support and encouragement. With people like you close to me, I am confident I will take my business very far.

The next loan will definitely lead me to another milestone and I am counting on you to make this happen. I appeal to you to make your contributions and I promise I won’t disappoint.
