Inventory of merchandise

Before making a loan I did not have any stock at home, I only made an order if there was an order coming in according to the wishes of the buyer, once I got a loan from Zidisha I started to stock things at home little by little ... thanks zidisha now my business is growing, I the easier it is to serve buyers because I now have a lot of stock at home. Hopefully my next loan will be able to get it again because now I need a tool to store my stock of goods at home so that they are more neat and clean, so my stock is no longer damaged, messy and dirty. Help me zidisha and funders. I will not disappoint you because my passion is very high to be a successful young entrepreneur.

Sebelum melakukan pinjaman saya tidak memiliki stok barang apapun dirumah, saya hanya melakukan order jika ada orderan masuk sesuai keinginan pembeli, begitu saya mendapatkan pinjaman dana dari zidisha saya mulai bisa stok barang dirumah sedikit demi sedikit.. terimakasih zidisha sekarang bisnis saya semakin berkembang, saya semakin mudah dalam melayani pembeli karena kini saya memiliki banyak stok barang dirumah. Semoga pinjaman berikutnya saya bisa kembali mendapatkannya karena sekarang saya membutuhkan alat alat untuk menyimpan stok barang jualan saya dirumah agar lebih rapih dan bersih, sehingga stok jualan saya tidak lagi rusak, berantakan dan kotor. Bantu saya zidisha dan pemberi dana. Saya tidak akan mengecewakan kalian karena semangat saya sangat tinggi untuk menjadi pengusaha muda yang sukses.

Full-color digital printing

Here are photos of my shop and printers acquired through loans from Zidisha

Full-color digital printing

Dear lenders, I am most happy to have paid my last installments today before the due date which is 24th August 2018. The loan helped me a great deal to achieve my goal of becoming a mass printing centre. I have managed to add printers and fully repaired my bizhub that now is working. My business is flowing smoothly. I have managed to sort out and establish black printing to a point where I can do mass clear printing without break downs since i have several printers on standby, if one breaks down, I have alternatives. This has asured me of a Kshs. 2000 ($20) minimum income per day. My children are going to school without school fees issues. My life has improved tremendously. My next step is to establish a digital color printing dominance in my market by acquiring Bizhub and Xerox color printers. I also need a photo printer that can do large photos of A4 size and even possibly A3. Thus I will have 3 categories of printing i.e Black, Color and Photo in commercial magnitude. Thank you so much lenders for having believed in me and my dreams that have now come true to be a successful printer. Thanks for elevating my life.
