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.

Hello Dorine!

I'm glad you could overcome the difficulties. Life's never a bed of roses, is it?

I see you have nearly completed the repayments, despite those problems. Congratulations on your good work!
