Buying a grating machine and a cassava-dough presser

Looks like you are ready for the dry season Stephen. I live in a very dry place and have successfully used cardboard between my rows of vegetables to keep down weeds and to keep the moisture in the ground. I cover the cardboard with wood shavings or wood chips. At the end of the harvest it can be plowed under into the soil. Over time it helps build the water holding capacity of the soil and attracts beneficial earthworms. Regards, Mary

Dear lenders, I am very happy to let you know that the loan that I have just cleared did a lot to improve my business.

This was important to me as I was able to invest in my childrens school books which are expensive in our country and also enabled me to repay my loan faster than I had anticipated.

May God bless you all and I hope that we will continue to be together in the year 2017.
