Dear lenders. I appreciate you so much for the money you loaned me. I was able to buy more materials for the order I got for security guard uniforms though I am un able to supply the quantity required because of inadequate funds as the loan amount I got wasn't enough to cater for the complete order but the goodness is that I negotiated with them that I can deliver part and then finish the other part after they have paid me to which they agreed. I have continued making clothes for people that come with their own materials I charge them for labour only and also I make clothes and sell them to the public, that's why I am able to pay my loan on time. I would want to pay the current loan as soon as possible so that I can get a little more and be able to finish my order. I have inspired two of my neighbours and they have asked me to teach them the tailoring skill. I have shared to them about Zidisha and they got interested but I advised them to come up with a business where they will be able to make daily sales that's when I can bring them on board. They are in the process of setting up their businesses and I am there to help and encourage them. They are so eager. Schools have just opened here. I had a wonderful holiday with my children, we visited Chaminuka safaris where we saw animals like lion, hyena, giraffes, monkeys, buffallo, different snakes. We went on a cruise boat it was a nice experience. We came back the same day. I do spend money cautiously and carefully, within my budget owing to the fact that I have other financial responsibilities to take care of. Indeed I am so greatful to Zidisha for this nice initiative. Thank u all, who have made this initiative a success, may God richly bless u.
