My Business

I Nickson Mobutu Ontweka, I love and I like business than being employed since I am hardworking and I like to commit myself in long hours in my business which I know am making money. My business it deals with metals works, battery charging and paintings.

The business is marketable as so many buildings are coming up in the Kisii county as the town is expanding, through this business I can be able to repay the loan while I feed my family and educate my children.

My business also has risks but sometimes are minimal, due to credit terms to your customers, as few of the customers they come so close as good customers and once you give them the service as good customers they run away while without repaying the credit.

Loan Proposal

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Zidisha community for giving me this chance to request for a loan which will be used to add my metal stock once I receive it and some paint to finish my client pending job of steel doors and Windows. The amount if their is any left over I will add welding loads to my stock store for my welding purposes.

This loan will also enable me to be able to finish my customers work in time, and also this will enable me to get my payment from my customers.
