My Business

We have opened a small business with my wife. we sell different types of household items like sugar,rice,maize and wheat flour,some cereals,cooking oil,detergents and many others.l buy these goods in wholesale and then later sell them to my customers in retail.Its a good business because one cannot stay without making sale during the day.I fund it using the small income from my teaching job.I use my profit to expand the business.I am planning to start selling some of the products in wholesale like sweets, rice,sugar,sanitary towels and others.l would like to improved my shop now that our country is gradually reopening the economy and business will start to pick even well.

Loan Proposal

I already have a general shop where I introduced plastic household items and cereals produce.With this loan I will buy more plastic materials like basins,buckets,jikos,umbrellas and cereals like maize,green beans,beans and many others.l also seek to boost my malimali stock like mirrors, jewelry and many others.

Income Source

Having these four areas I.e plastic items,cereals,general shop and malimali will in my shop will ensure that I don't go without a sale in a day.besides am employed and I can use my income to boost my repayments.

    Unfortunately John did not communicate at all on his last loan despite being months late with all the repayments and being asked many times what the challenges were. Disappointing after his previous track record.

    405USD loan paid back on schedule and in full. Looks like you are doing really solid job of managing the expansion of your business John. Happy to support another loan if that in your plans.
