The portion of the loan I'll also spend in paying my workers , and also to hire some additional number of workers so that I could have an easy time in managing other economic activities that I have been also running as my side hustle.The imputs that I will be purchasing with some portion of the bill loan will help in maintaining the good quality of the crop ,also ease their growth rate, so be that I could be able to yield on time , and with higher amount of profit .
