Materials for making natural skin care products

Hi Malte,

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my business story. Thank you for your encouraging words.
Indeed, we need to move away from chemical-based cosmetics and remedies as they are not only detrimental to our overall health, but also to the environment as you rightfully say.

I wish to create awareness and to "convert" as many users as possible to natural health, wellness and beauty products. I also want to encourage women to be their sisters' keepers because when they buy our products, they help us support rural women by buying raw materials from them. I believe this creates an overall win-win situation for all those involved.

I appreciate that you are interested in my business. I would be grateful for any support in terms of ideas, funding, and even criticism where you think I can do better or differently.
Thank you very much for funding the current loan which I will use to buy packaging containers.

I look forward to engaging more with you.

With my regards,


Materials for making natural skin care products

Hi Mercy,

I like your project very much, because I think it's important to gradually get away from chemical cosmetics due to a number of reasons (health issues like allergies; environmental pollution due to microplastics; cruelty of animal testing; and so on).

Furthermore it's nice that you try to build your business around social and ecologic responsibility by buying the raw materials from local women-led farms.

I would be interested in hearing more about you and your venture!

Feel free to contact me at: [email protected]

Best regards,

To all my Lenders I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the last loan of $520. two reasons I struggled towards the end of the loan was 1. the screen am I was looking for initially I had to order from China because I was looking for the complete screen ( the screen, hinges and covers) I could not get locally it arrives next week so that business is still pending. 2. towards the last repayment week, I fell sick with malaria and typhoid so business went down. All in all this loan was a big boost to my business because I fixed over 6 iPhone screens, sold one laptop, and at the end of all the business i invested this funds I will have made an extra working capital of $200. Thank you
