My Business

Iam a business lady who has been operating since 2008 commercializing traditional products. I supply paintings, fabrics, sculptures, baskets, bracelets and leather etc.
I started my business out of my own savings that i collect from rentals . Iam happy to find an institution that will help me to expand my business so i can restock some of the products which are needed to boost up the business.

Loan Proposal

My business has been approached by several tourists who wish to place orders for African designer products such as dresses, westcoats, neckties, shirts and bags etc. I want to service both new and old clients with these products . As requested by some clients I want to buy better materials to ensure quality design for me to meet my clients expectations. The market for the business is good women in particular especially are fond of the unique hand painted African designs and I have continuous and growing demand for these customized fabrics.
