Loan Proposal

I am currently finding it hard to meet my customers needs because my beauty shop is still in need of stocks. God willing if I get this loan I will be in a position to buy products in bulk and be able to sell them in wholesale.
I hopefully think that this particular loan will be a turning point for business and life as a whole.
