my business keeps expanding each amd every month because i don't pay myself salary. so all the profits i return to business for the expansion. I want to grow my business and take it to the next level in couple of years and create massive job opportunities for the majority of unemployed youths in kenya. our business has done well for the past two years because of our dedicated efforts from me and rose.

Loan Proposal

One i receives this money i am planning to buy the business restaurant from a friend who is selling his business. The business am about to buy i have already negotiated terms with the owner Mr. Onchuru Dennis; the business is located at the central Business District of Kisii town. So I will use the following funds as follows;
I. Paying goodwill of Usd 30/- which is Ksh 30,000/- to the business owner
II. Paying rent for three (3) month which Usd 60/- which is ksh. 60,000/-
III. Purchasing furniture for the restaurant at Usd 30 which is Ksh 30,000/-
IV. Purchasing utensils at Usd 20 which is ksh 20,000/-
V. Purchasing uniforms for chefs and staff at Usd 15 which is Ksh. 15000/-
VI. Paints and rebranding at Usd 10/-which is Ksh.10,000/-
VII. Purchasing food stuff at Usd 40 which is Ksh. 40,000/-
Once I acquire all these I will be able to make good returns, since this is not a new business, it has been running quite well. So I will have to improve the business by making it more efficient.
I will also employ two new staff to the business since I have already inherited four employees. So the total stalls will be six, three chefs and three waitresses. And I will be able to make between Usd 20-40 in good day. So I hope you will support me to achieve this dream come true
Thank you so much
