I hope you are all doing well. It's been a while I send an update on the progress of the loan. I have been out of my country for some months on an educational tour to South Africa. I have arrived and currently checked with the people benefiting from this loan and they are trying their best to ensure things go well. They had a slight problem with their produce but things have resumed now and they are committed to finishing making payment of the loan before the year comes to an end.

They continue to thank all lenders for changing their lives and for their continued support in lifting their livelihoods. Thank you!

Purchase of grills and burners for gas supply business

Dear Lenders
Thank you indeed for having funded my previous loan. I managed to increase cylinder stock and hire an assistant. In the long run, it resulted in increased revenue. God blessed me with a son this month (an heir to this business). Preparing for his coming was a lighter task since there has been better flow of income from the business, to support my salary. I am therefore a happy father and a thankful member of the zidisha community. May the Lord richly reward all my lenders.
