Laptops for sale and other merchandise

Dear Lenders, How are you? Hopefully all of them are in good health and in the spirit of activity. This week, my daughter at her school is following the Mid-Semester Assessment. So, besides accompanying my daughter to study, I also still have to sell to get the benefits that will be used, one of which is to pay for my daughter"s monthly tuition fees. It"s quite tiring, but it still has to be uplifting and fight for my daughter"s future :). I want to update the development of my online store. Today I bought a stock of goods for sale, which is to buy 5 items of clothing for about Rp. 5,000,000 - around USD 370. I am very grateful, because by getting to know Zidisha and the help of loan funds from you, my online store can always add to the inventory that is in great demand by buyers. By turning the profits of sales, I was able to fulfill my daily needs and provide education and buy appropriate food for my daughter. My hope is that Zidisha and the lenders will always be there for us borrowers in Indonesia. Always passionate and healthy. Greetings, Endang

Dear Lenders,

Apa kabar? Semoga semuanya dalam keadaan sehat dan semangat beraktifitas.

Satu minggu ini, putri saya di sekolahnya sedang mengikuti Penilaian Tengah Semester. Jadi, selain menemani putri saya belajar, saya juga tetap harus berjualan untuk mendapatkan keuntungan yang akan dipergunakan salah satunya untuk membayar biaya uang sekolah bulanan putri saya. Cukup melelahkan, namun tetap harus semangat dan berjuang demi masa depan putri saya :) .

Saya ingin update perkembangan toko online saya. Hari ini saya membeli persediaan barang untuk dijual, yaitu membeli 5 kodi pakaian kira-kira seharga Rp. 5.000.000,- sekitar USD 370.

Saya sangat ber-terimakasih sekali, karena dengan mengenal Zidisha dan bantuan pinjaman dana dari kalian, toko online saya bisa selalu menambah persediaan barang yang banyak diminati oleh pembeli. Dengan memutar keuntungan penjualan, saya bisa memenuhi kebutuhan hidup sehari-hari dan memberi pendidikan serta membelikan sandang pangan yang layak untuk putri saya.

Harapan saya, semoga Zidisha dan para pemberi pinjaman akan selalu ada bagi kami para peminjam di Indonesia. Semangat dan sehat selalu.
