Loan Proposal

Hello dear lenders.I recently cleared repayment of my previous loan.My previous loan helped me a lot to boost my business by buying cosmetic products for sale.I also paid my kids schools fees for the all year of 2017 without inconvenience. Thanks to you alot.
I once again come to you to lend me loan.I would like to use part of this loan to buy cosmetic products including human hair varieties,body lotions and ointments, jewelries and neglaces among other products in my shop outgoing first and running out of stock.I intend to buy these goods amounting to a total of £50(ksh 50,000).This is a major source of my income as I use some of the profit to pay school fees for my kids and shop rent as well.
For the remaining £70(ksh 70,900) I would like to put in my M-pesa line as float.This will enable my mpesa business to realize more clients turnout hence more transactions and more profit. Its also a good part of my business and part of the profit I get,to pay one of my employee who is working with me in the shop.I also use some of this money as a payment of myself,my kids basic needs and to pay house rent.
Having achieved all these I hope my business will grow much bigger and will be able to pay my loan on time.Iam kindly looking forward for your support to lend me loan.Iam also grateful for your for your continuous support. Thank you.
