We’re not just about spreading the wealth — we’re all about spreading friendship, too. That’s why we make it easy for lenders and entrepreneurs to communicate directly with each other throughout the duration of their loans and beyond. Scroll down to see ambition in action!

Dear All!
I got a message!
Poverty kills! Poverty is a disease! No one should ever stay long with this dreadful disease called poverty. It is no good thing. And it cannot be tolerated. Thanks to Zidisha for coming on the scene to help curb the situation.
Poverty is a global phenomenon. And every one is in on it whether we like it or not. It's a global canker - the most dreadful of all.

It exists on all levels. From the topmost to the least, it affects everybody. But Zidisha would not back off nor would she relent efforts to combat this dreaded beast. Together we are conquerors! Let's conquer poverty together!!!! Hey! those who can lend, lend. Those who are lent to, be faithful and diligent. Spread the news. Spread the word. Be innovative. Be creative. In the end we want every one as conquerors! Together let us go conquering and conquering till this enemy called poverty is vanquished and banished out of our lives! We'll make the world a better place if we each one is whole and free from poverty. GO ZIDISHA!!!! GO EVERY ONE!!!!

I wish to inform my lenders and the zidisha community that the loan I was granted was a saviour. As I had indicated, I was able to purchase 2 bags of government-subsidized fertilizer at 2000KES each. I supplement the tea plants at the right time since it's raining. As a result, tea production has greatly improved; over 30% in production, which will translate to increased profits. Once again. Thank you.
