Dear all,
My business from last week has been doing very well which is a good remarkable that in future it will do very great. Imagine lenders whereby my profits raised from USD 86 to USD 106. Therefore lenders yesterday I found it necessary to repay all my loan to enable me post for a new loan to catch up with the challenges which are facing now my cybercafe such as to add a skype equipment and at least to add 3 computers to satisfy my customers needs. Hopefully lenders you will fund my loan in good time to enable me go as per my proposal.
Thank you and God bless you all.

Good day my lenders: I am sincerely pleased by this project, and whoever started it was very noble in the heart and in mind. I have seen a lot of breakthrough in by day to day business activities and its my sincere hope and objectives to work hard and harder to become probably the first most successful Alumni in business from Zidisha project.
How I hope all the stakeholders of this project will continue to share a healthy relationship that will bring mutual understanding amongest this rapidly growing community.

Once again I would like to recognize the effort of my honored lenders as they continue to keep this project alive and helping it to focus on it's objectives. I would like to apply for another loan once am through with repayment of the current one in order to expand my cloth business which I had started with funds gotten from selling of eggs from my chicken Rearing business which I started courtesy of zidisha loan.
