Good day my lenders: I am sincerely pleased by this project, and whoever started it was very noble in the heart and in mind. I have seen a lot of breakthrough in by day to day business activities and its my sincere hope and objectives to work hard and harder to become probably the first most successful Alumni in business from Zidisha project.
How I hope all the stakeholders of this project will continue to share a healthy relationship that will bring mutual understanding amongest this rapidly growing community.

Once again I would like to recognize the effort of my honored lenders as they continue to keep this project alive and helping it to focus on it's objectives. I would like to apply for another loan once am through with repayment of the current one in order to expand my cloth business which I had started with funds gotten from selling of eggs from my chicken Rearing business which I started courtesy of zidisha loan.

I have used the loan to improve the poultry house. This has enabled me add more poultry meaning more eggs. My income has increased and l have managed to pay fees for the two students who l sponsor. I am considering buying an incubator for them to start a hatcery business since there is a high demand for chicks.

Hi Naomi,
Thanks for sharing the good news. I thought of you when I went to the market. People were annoyed because the farmers had no kale to sell.
Best wishes for continued success, Ann

Hello Lenders;
Indeed you are more than of our parents because after your course here in Kenya your parents now gives you a go a head to promote your self. Imagine where to go if you did not secure a good job or you lack capital to start your own business. Indeed for me Zidisha boosted my business to a great position since I could have not qualified for loans here in Kenya for their restrictions for the loan such as a logbook, a tittle deed and the like, but for Zidisha trusting and a face book account are the only qualifications for the loan.
my loan is now 78% funded please continue to fund it up to 100%.
Thanks a lot.
God Bless you

Dennis Furr, you've just made my day. God Bless you so much! Hardship growing up made me venture into business. Your daughter is lucky to have a caring dad who knows the importance of investing.

I promise to pay back and hopefully meet you someday. Once again, be Blessed.
