Provisions shop

I will at this time wish to buy more a the goods I sell for a reason that demand has risen hence I have to go to the market about three times in a week to replenish stocks which ties up my profit. So I believe bulk purchase will help me save cost.
This will make a difference because it will enhance customer satisfaction as well as cost of transportation. I forecast to have a profit margin of about ten percent.
This increased earnings will be reinvested

Hai Para pemberi Donatur

Sebelumnya saya minta maaf atas keterlambatan pengembalian dana yang telah saya pinjam, hal ini karena rumah orang tua saya sedang ada kendala, atap rumah yang hampir roboh, jadi dengan kerja keras saya bekerja dengan sedikit istirahat untuk mencari dana tambahan untuk merenovasi atap rumah orang tua saya. Untuk sisa pengembalian dana, secepatnya akan saya bayarkan pada bulan ini.

Terima kasih atas kesabarannya, sekali mohon maaf yang sebesar-besarnya.

Re stocking capital for second hand clothing business

Greetings lenders. I am glad Zidisha has made me a businessperson. With the loan that I last received, I was able to increase my stock and subsequently the profits. Added to this was the fact that the loan was a booster, in terms of helping me cover business expenses such as rent payment for my business stall. Without the money from Zidisha, it would have not been easy for me to transform from hawking to the extent of opening my ow stall.
The loan i received from Zidisha not only helped me expand my business but it also taught me why it is important to save. With the weekly installments that I was expected to pay throughout the repayment period, I was able to develop financial consciousness in my operations, Thanks to Zidisha. The loans from Zidisha make me become responsible in a great way.

I would like to give great thanks to my lenders for making my plans realizable through this micro-lending plan. I have been able to use the past loan facilities to foot my internet connection and power bills, which support my online freelancing venture. I plan to use the net loan facility to get a wireless Mi-Fi connection equipment for my internet connection so as to enable the people that we work with to share the work space and connection without the need of everyone having their own modem. I hope that as the facility increases I will be able to use it to procure more equipment and software to facilitate my online work.

Kemarin, uang pinjaman telah saya pergunakan untuk membeli Laptop, tinta printer dan beberapa variasi baju-baju rumahan. Stok celana legging anak-anak di supplier, barangnya masih kosong sehingga saya belum membelinya, mudah-mudahan minggu depan sudah ada sehingga saya dapat membeli legging anak-anak tersebut.

Saya harap stok barang yang saat ini ada pada saya, cepat terjual sehingga saya bisa mendapatkan keuntungan lebih untuk membeli kembali variasi-variasi lainnya dengan lebih banyak lagi.

Terimakasih kepada semua pemberi pinjaman saya, kalian semua membuat hari-hari kami sangat menyenangkan. Semoga anda semua selalu bahagia dan sehat.
