About Me

I am a university graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental health waiting employment. So in the mean time I decided to venture into a business to earn enough income to make ends meet and supply my dependants with their daily needs

My Business

I rear chickens and supply them to big supermarkets when they are due. I also have a salon that I run after am done with the chicken work. It is mainly for clients that are held u during the day as it functions fully in the evening. I have employed 4 workers at the salon if which all of them are students as we are trying to boost our economic status by helping each other run the night salon

Loan Proposal

With the previous loan I got I was able to order more chick and now I have a lot of them which am rearing. I am kindly asking for more money because I need to buy starter feed medicines and all the necessities for the growth of the chicks. Soon after purchasing the chick there is certain medicine I am sapposed to give them mixed with water and it is expensive so I used part of the previous loan I got to buy the medicines. Now I need more money to buy feeders and drinker's to accommodate more chicks

Income Source

I understand that no matter how certain you may be about your business paying off you can never be too sure of the risk factors. So for risks like theft and or fire I have insured my my small business so that in case of theft or fire I will have all my money back which I invested from the insurance company. And for risks like making a loss because none is buying my chickens that will not in any way affect my due payments because I will use the money I am earning from my saloon to repay in case of anything

    As I had stated earlier I was paid by chopies for the chickens I supplied but they used ABSA bank for payments. I went on the 5th of March to withdraw but then unfortunately my card was swallowed by the ATM machine. I have submitted my problem to the bank management and I am awaiting my cards replacement. As soon as I get my card I will be able to access my money and pay back my loan. I am so sorry for being late but I will be able to repay my loan by the end of this week

    Firstly I want to apologise for being quiet I have been very busy lately. And as for the weekly instalments that I have missed well after my chickens got ready I signed a monthly contract with a supermarket called chopies. The contract is that I will supply them 50 chickens every week for the whole February then I will get my payment on the 1st of March. And so that is when I will be able to repay all the money I owe you at once as for now am using the little funds I have for transportation of the chickens. Thank you

    Good morning I am very grateful for. The loan I received on the 4th of January. The total amount I received was a ZMK1949 which I used to order chicks. I have already place an order and the chicks will be delivered to my house on January 7 and I am very happy that my business is moving so smoothly thank you for the support. I am likely to pay back the loan on the 7th of January because my sales have been very good and I need more money to buy chicken feed and all that is needed for their healthy growth

    With this money my plan is to buy 250 chicks to rear and continue my business. This loan is helping me top up on the money am having. The money I have can only get 50 chicks but with this loan amount it will add up to 250 so that I do not run out of supplies.

    I am very grateful for the money you are lending me
