Business loan

Hi Shaibu,
I hope your loan gets funded. Sometimes it takes several tries which is especially true as your loans get larger. Unfortunately there are more borrowers than lenders on Zidisha. Perhaps you could add more information in your discussion section of Zidisha telling what improvements the previous loan helped you with in your growing business. Lenders like to hear about progress because this is what Zidisha is all about. Best of luck to you! Regards, Margaret

Buy music books for training.

I wish to thank my lenders for expediting the process of awarding me with a loan right on time. The previous loan was for me to purchase some uniforms for my team. Zidisha did a fine job by expediting the process and in no time we were able to have uniforms for our team.

Thank you so very much for ensuring that our image is good.
This time with the loan of 9,300 I can be able to add more cables for our equipment. We have already collected 10,000/- Ksh. Now we need about 9250 to be able to add cables for our music equipment namely, keyboard, bass, lead and mic cables. Thank you Zidisha team.
