Inventory purchase

I topped up some other cash and added it to the loaned money and purchased flash disks (about 10 of them). Unfortunately students from the JKUAT University went on strike for about 3 months and when they resumed, the lecturers followed on their strike also. My business was a start up and therefore succumbed to the lack of business at the time. I am sorry that i delayed my money but everyday i woke up with the urge to repay but i had no money.

I am happy i have repaid it at last. Thank you so much to my lender. May God bless you.
