My business involve training young children on basic scouting skillslike marching,hiking,conserving the environment and alos to be self independent and learn how to cook,bake and even prepere lands for planting and also know different types of plants,from the profits I get here I support my family and the rest I save.

Loan Proposal

I would like to buy books,maps,charts,marking pens,rulers and compass for my business,this will cost an amount of [email protected],000 that will sustain me through out the first term when schools open in January 2015,with the funds from Zidisha I plan to add to my savings and buy these stationery that will sustain me through the term.this will allow me to save alot since buying at small scale cost alot while if i manage to get the stationery at wholesale price it is much cheaper,this will alow me to save up 70% on stationery and thus my profits will increase by a good rate so repaying the loan will not be a problem since I will have plenty to save and pay my loan well.

    The reason for the change in repayment schedule is because i am selected to attend a course in scouting in the afternoons for a month as from January 2015 . I will not be able to pay the amount i stated because i wont be able to attend to my business in the afternoon thus lowering my income as i will be paid half days. The items i bought with the loan have been of great assistance because i have started preparing myself for the scouts training in advance before the schools open 5th January 2015. Thank you for your support.
