Loan Proposal

I will buy more stock including households supplies that run out of stock hence ensuring steady supply for my clients. I will also use the loan to pay for online ads for the accounts i have on Facebook, Jiji & Instagram.

The loan will also help in paying for item deliveries, airtime and shipping charges for items that need to be shipped.

Income Source

I have 2 sources of income. My job where i'm employed as a marketer and get paid monthly and my business which is still growing. As a result, getting money to pay is not a big problem.

In regards to stability, i can say that both my job and business are stable especially because i work both from home and online.

    Grace paid her loan back early and it has been a pleasure to help in a small way in furthering her business venture. Would certainly invest again.
