My Business

I have a shop where I sell almost everything .The profit per item is small but I sell a lot of things per day making a better profit. The profit from the shop is about 30000 monthly. This may depend because some of things are seasonal ,like when school is being opened I sell a lot of things related to school .The money that I get from my small business I use for my own upkeep ,pay my bills and some goes to my parents and our you siblings for now i will use the amount also to raise my daughter who is now about to go to school.thanks very much for the good work zidisha are doing. you have really helped many people through your scheme.

Loan Proposal

I am Rachel from Bahati Nakuru. I have a retail shop. As the festive seasons nears alot of customers requests for different variety of goods which I may not have stocked in my shop.
Therefore I would wish to apply for this loan to add those goods that I don't have in my shop. For example Brown rice and wheat that nowdays people prefer eating instead of white rice and flour.
I bag of both costs kshs20000, and it can take me for like a month. I can also prefer to mill the wheat and sell it like flour. So the cost of milling and packing for that 1 bag will cost another ksh10000.
