Hallo Franmiguel,
I must begin with an apology for going silent and also not making my payments as agreed. This is because, I had to go back to school, though training on a different study all together. At the same time, my kids are growing into high school and university level. This isn't easy and even though I'm done with studies, my kids are now 3 for campus, one in high school.
Now, my writing to you is to thank you for the great help you have been, and to let you know that I'm committed to pay my loan though not at once but I began yesterday. When I'm done paying, I will not be asking for another loan, but I will forever be grateful for what you did, may God bless you.
Thank you for the patience too.

New printing machines and tuition for phd program

dear lenders

I am so thankful for standing with me for the last 4 years. At first it wasn't easy, because I was running my business while i was in school. when i got the last loan, i had a fee balance of kshs 87600. i took kshs 50,000 from the loan and added the rest from the business savings, paid all the fee balance. the balance( kshs 37600) i was able to increase the stock which enabled me to raise the rest of the fee for the remaining time of my schooling. I finished my master's degree last year. i am so proud of your support. this year have started another business of printing and stationery services next to a new constructed medical training campus and its doing so well. this far I would say, if it was not for your support I don't know i would have done this much. my new printing and stationery business, need two extra two printing machines. this is because the new campus population has grown and am losing most of my customers because only one machine is working. I have registered for my PhD program in Kenyatta university and am trusting that with the two businesses i will be able to raise more cash for fees and upkeep your support this time will do great work in my business as well in my PhD program. thank you all

Well and irrigation for my farm

Simon, I was just wondering if you would consider selling lemon juice (for people to add to water) instead of soda's? It often quenches the same desire, but is much better for health (& is also still affordable)...

Also, instead of icecream, frozen coconut serves a similar purpose :-) As does something called "sorbet"...

You seem like such a wonderful person, & your other endeavours are great/very admirable :-) I just thought I'd make those couple of suggestions to help with the influence on the community :-)

(It also attracts more zidisha lenders when things are healthy & vegan)

Wishing you all the best with your endeavours Simon :-)
Emma from Australia.

Loan for establishment of my own local oven project.

Hi Augustina,

I wonder if you've ever heard of solar cooking? We do solar cooking in the UK - we even cooked bread in the middle of winter using just sunshine and mirrors, even though the UK isn't the best place for sun!

It's not electric, it simply concentrates heat from the sun using something reflective. A solar cooker can even be made out of aluminium foil and cardboard, but most people don't know about this.

If you're interested, here is a website with lots of information about solar cooking:

Also here are two links to info on how to make a fireless cooker. These are often used with solar cookers, to allow people to keep the food hot until the evenings. They can also be used with any cooking method to save firewood or other fuel.
