Zadisha I really appreciate you alot and the help you have been rendering to the public and also the improvements of the loans to the individuals of the entire public. The last loan I got here was a great thing that happened to me because it brought me good luck.

Inventory of bananas for market stall

Dear lenders: The last loan I received from you helped me a lot. I bought 90 bananas at a cost of kshs. 600 ($6) per a bunchof bananas, totalling to kshs. 54,000 ($540). I sold the 90 bananas within a week at a cost of kshs. 700 ($7) per a bunch, thereby fetching me kshs. 63,000 ($630). Hence giving me a net profit of kshs 9000($90) before deducting expenses. After expenditure I get a net profit of kshs. 7000 ($7).

With the proceeds I managed to pay for my college fees amounting to kshs. 105,000 ($1050) for the whole year(2018). I am yet to pay a fee balance of kshs. 25,000 ($250) before I graduate with a Diploma in Theology and Bible Studies in the month of March, 2019. I also took care of my cow and the calf in the same year.

Broiler chicken farming

Hello my dear lenders.

Am so grateful to the kindness ,humility and support you have accorded to me.
The previous loan amount helped me hugely in that I boosted it with my savings and was able to acquire good feeders , drinkers and vaccination for my broilers.
Hence, I didn't have a high risk of broilers dying. The return on investment stood at 50%.
Going forward, am glad to report that I no longer have problems with finding a market for my broilers as was the case previously. I have a good network connection and reliable clients that am struggling to fully satisfy.
I kindly request you to lend me the amount stated above to boost my savings so that I can increase the number of broilers I keep by 50birds.
Thank you in Anticipation.

Solar lanterns for harvest time


2018 has been a year of impact! A year that will go in our history for distributing more solar lanterns to people who need them the most. A year when i concentrated much on listening to customers needs and working to try and deliver life changing products to the most remotest communities of Eastern Province. A year when i got stuck the most with my car while working around the clock to reach the villages that have been left behind.

As i was going through the pictures we get from the field, i came across the picture i have attached. Regina told me how a solar lantern has changed her life. listening to Regina, a simple solar lantern made it possible for her to embark on saving the money he used to buy paraffin so that she can buy enough farming inputs. This year, Regina has planted 2 hectares of land compared to the previous year when she only planted 1 hectare . All thanks goes to the solar lantern. People ask me how? With solar lanterns, women are able to save from buying paraffin to light their huts. An annual saving of between $30-80!. Regina thanked our Rent to Own model for making it possible to own a solar lantern.

For us, we say thank you to all our lenders for making it possible to impact Regina's life. We also extend our thanks to Zidisha for providing this platform for entrepreneurs. Together, lets reach more women and girls with a solar lantern that rekindle hope and create opportunities for them!

Happy 2019 to all my lenders and Zidisha Team!
