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.

This is the TV set that I bought with the money you loaned me and this has seen my business grow by leaps and bounds. 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.

Hello this evening,
It is my pleasure to salute you and congratulate you for this great support to our families in Kenya. Nowadays I can see that you are boosting women on your website to post loans. Actually this is a great achievement to Kenya since women in Kenya are disadvantaged and most of them do not have hopes on capital for starting business.

The Tricycles I purchased with part of the loan. They have been really popular with customers and only one is remaining in stock. Looking forward to buying more.

Greetings Lenders and Zidisha Team,

Hoping that you are all well, I thank God that my family and I are all good. In terms of business at the moment things are a bit slow due to end of year exams both for primary and secondary schools.

However I am looking forward to a peak time after schools close and the long holiday ahead. I am therefore gearing up for this by trying to stock up more products.

The bicycles and tricycles that I introduced to the shop with the help of my current loan did well in terms of sales and currently I have just two pieces remaining so that has motivated me to plan for more stock for the holidays.

The sales have helped me to pay back my current loan on time and I have used part of my profits to add some more products like photo frames and educational toys. I am also saving some part of the profit to build a display shelf outside the shop to catch the eyes of potential customers.

I thank you once again for your generosity and continued support. Wishing you all a blessed week ahead.
