Farm mechanization

Hi dear Zidisha lenders. The last loan you gave me went on purchase of chicken nipple drinkers and a pipe. This is to help me install a water system where the chicken use bipples instead of waterers . The waterers eat on our time because we have to keep refilling the m every now and then and this is cumbersome. The chicken sometimes tip them over when there is little waer remaining and this wets the chicken coop causing moulds to build up if not cleaned immediately.It actually is hectic and cumbersome and needs alot of manpower. Spread of diseases isalso very fast. The water system I eant to install will help curb on diseases and extra manpower that eats into profits. All I need to complete the system is a small water tank and voila, my technician can install it.The last loan was not enough to buy all the gadgets needed. But so far I can smile because I have the nipples and pipe

Again, Many thanks for all past assistance.

Business expansion loan

Hello, my dear lenders,
I sincerely lack the words to thank. I would sincerely like to express my gratitude for the invaluable assistance that you accorded me when you supported my cause. I had tried many other online lending platforms in vain. For this reason, feel highly appreciated. For the two times you've lent me, I have been able to expand my business inventory. With this, my profit margin has gradually increased. I believe with more lending, my inventory will realize the break-even level to meet rudimentary operational costs. I will upload photos of inventories next time I report back.
Thanks and thanks once more. God bless

Solar lanterns for harvest time

Greetings to All my lenders.

Happy Holidays to you all!

Its been long since i posted and updated you on whats happening at kukula Solar.

This year i i had an opportunity to meet with 44th President of the USA Barack Obama in South Africa as one of the Obama Africa Leaders. It was one the most amazing time of my life and the 5 day event seemed like it was 1 day!lol

This meeting was made possible because when i came here to request my first loan to distribute solar lantern to the most remote communities of my country Zambia, you all came on board and supported me with the loan. Today we have seen the power that a simple solar lantern has. We have seen people who depended on kerosene for lighting switching to solar lantern and saving more money. We have seen children performance increase in rural villages. We have seen five young people earning income through distribution of these solar lantern under Kukula Solar.

Kukula Solar was founded by Zidisha loan. Today we have organisation believing in what we first believed in when we posted the first loan request here on Zidisha. The winners in this all venture all YOU my lenders. You decided to lend me so that over 2,000 women, girls and children can have access to solar lanterns.

As i write this note, i want to say THANK YOU to all of you! Thank you! Thank you!

I also want to reaffirm my lenders that i have been repaying my loans all on time. I have engaged Zidisha on why my repayment has been reduced from 100% to 98% when all my repayment are on time. I did make a repayment for 1st and 8th December. Its been three weeks since i made the repayment but till now it has not reflected. I have opened a ticket with Zidisha and no response has been made.

I believe it will be resolved and i look forward to coming to you my lenders as we continue with our goal of distributing 100,000 solar lamps to impact 1 Million lives in rural Zambia.

I Thank you all and Happy Holidays.
