About Me

My name is Anthony Opara, I live in Lagos Nigeria with my wife Vero and our three sons. We work as caterers and survive by catering for weddings, birthdays and other occasions. We have had to cater to families who prefer our home cooking to buy from hotels and other eateries because our food comes with a touch of home. Over the period we have discovered that our engagements require a lot of planning and renting of equipment and human resource management as we sometimes require some experts to assist us in preparing some dishes requested by our customers.

We now need a blog site to advertise our business on the internet so we seek a loan to pay for a website where we can advertise and get more people to know about our business and hire us for our outdoor service

My Business

Our business is catering to different clients ranging from schools, companies, families friends and even family members. Our business is based in Lagos but we have had to travel outside the state to cater for a burial ceremony. We cook different kinds of food and cakes and small chops to satisfy the requirements of our customers, which is sometimes based on what part of Nigeria they come from. We sometimes employ experts to cook some of the food requested by our clients. The greater challenge of our business is planning all the aspects including human resource management and transportation.

Loan Proposal

We have discussed that renting big cooking pots each time we have an order to provide food to a school or a wedding party costs us money so we decided to approach to raise about Hundred Thousand Naira to enable us to buy these pots and big frying pans. We will save cost as well as rent these pots and pans to other caterers when we do not have a job

Income Source

Thankfully the federal government has announced further ease of the lockdown and the Lagos state government will probably further opening of the business space which will affect our business positively. we have started receiving orders to cater for small gatherings and baking birthday and wedding anniversary cakes. I believe that with further opening of the business space we will be able to not only repay this loan but take larger loans to expand our business
