I had to look for temporary work in order to pay for my college education. from savings i made i manage to bodaboda which gives me income and also start the poultry business. I love adventure.. I choose this type of business because its very marketable in my are there are a lot of hotels and small cafes in my locality and almost all of them sell chicken thus there is already an existing market for this type of business and sure market for the bossiness. Another business is the motorcycle which i use it to offer transportation for people. The amount gained i use it for family spending and also reinvestment.

Loan Proposal

Hello Lenders, This is another great opportunity for me to bring my proposal to you. My business is a poultry business and through yo u my business have been expanding. As i have a big house for keeping the small chicks i want to increase to no of chicks from the previous 250 chicks to now 400 chicks. 1 chick cost 1usd so 400 chicks will cost 400usd. the rest of the balance which is around 250usd i will use to buy chicks food which a 50kg bag cost 38usd so i will buy 7bags at a total of 250usd for a stater but will letter have to add my savings up to there maturity which is around 4weeks. After deducting expenses i will have a profit of around 380usd. which is good money and this will make it possible to repay my loan on time as i have always done. This will make me be able to sustain my self and family, help me grow my business further and also be able to continue with my college education.. Just want to thank you in advance for funding my loan.
