Hello lenders,
Hope you are doing great. And your family too is doing well. Here in Ghana, after your University education, you will have to serve the country for 1 year- National Service. That is what I am doing now. This has affected business somehow.

This will not in anyway destroy our trust for each other. I will work hard and be kind to my promises. Thank you

To All My Lenders & Zidisha Family!
Today, I fully repaid my loan in full. Without you guys, my business won't be where it is now. Thank you so much! Zidisha has really changed my life for the better. I can now dream big dreams and create business ideas without allowing myself to be scared away by the thought of lack of capital to start a venture. My gratitude goes to all my lenders who funded my first and second loan: Christy CMK71, goodwithoutgod, timnj, hulte, zidishap2p, treyh, mguenter, AllieJ, thebonseung, vortex, Aaron85 and Tom44; Thank you so very much. I look forward to your support in raising my future loans. God bless you all.

Dear Lenders,
Am happy with the disbursement of the loan and now I wish to add the 4 computers which I ordered yesterday from Nairobi and the printer this will make me to earn a good profit and my customers will be happy with me too. Also am working on the waiver as I promised my customers who were eagerly waiting for this. LET ME NOW WITHDRAW MY MONEY AND WORK ON IT.

I am happy that my business is really doing good.My sales have gone high from making 4000k a day to 7000k.Zidisha has helped me improve my business big time.Don't be surprised for paying my loan faster it's because here in Kenya we are approaching high season and I really need to be prepared and stock my boutique and cosmetic so that I supply my customers with whatever they need and this is through getting good money from Zidisha.I have enrolled a few people and more still to come.Thank you once again.
