My customer base includes clients with official purposes like payslips, license renewals, income tax returns, visa and passport applications, vehicle registrations and transfers among others.

Loan Proposal

From my savings and the loan that I am applying for I hope to buy an incubator . Since buying one month chicks are expensive, I intend to incubate my eggs so as to save the cost of buying chicks and at the same time having the best breeds the remaining cash will help me in equipping the chick’s new house, lighting, and warmth for chicks(1 day old) coming out of the incubator to the brooder room and for veterinary regular checkups. This is in preparation for the end of year and the New Year’s (2016) celebrations, where the demand is high and I don’t want to let my customers down and at the same time add one more worker who will give special attention to the incubator and the young chicks.
An incubator goes for US$ 150
Am grateful for visiting my page.
