My Business

My business is that of making bricks and selling them to people building. I enjoy my business since the materials i need are locally available. My clients like the quality of my products and have referred their friends to me as clients. i enjoy my job since i makes good income that supports my family.

My challenge is paying for labor for the bricks, since i always need enough labor in brick making.

Loan Proposal

With the loan I am going to build a shade for my bricks at a cost of $12. An increase in the number of bricks would increase my income since they are in high demand in our area. My business is going to expand when my loan is funded. An increase in income would help me provide for my family's needs.
