The ripple effects of a loan

This is to inform my lenders and all the Zidisha fraternity about the results of this loan.  It’s through your your help that one more youth has been employed in my business. This bright young man finished his primary education with flying colours but due to lack of school fees he was unable to proceed with his education, his single mother could not afford to take him further than that.  And due to his lower level of education the man has failed to secure a permanent job for years until now when you funded my business, it ensured increased purchases and sales hence the need for another person to help in transporting the merchandise to and from the warehouse.

Your kind help has gone a long way to create a smile on this young man’s life.  Even though his starting salary is little compared to the cost of living, he could not hide his happiness on securing this job. I will post his photos for all to see how you are touching people’s lives. Thanks a lot.
