My Business

my business involve offering salon services such as hair dressing,manicure,pedicure and facial.I started the business after finishing my college education and could not find employment,after a short while I joined Pivot college and learnt how to run my business on a professional level now I also train youths and other intrested people on skills of operating a salon.My main challenge in business is where customers come in numbers and I dont have enough equiments to sustain them and thats why am mainly interested in the funds so I may buy more necessary equipments.

Loan Proposal

I wish to buy stock for my salon business worth KSH 30,000 this money I will use to buy weaves,hair addition and other beauty products since I have noticed that I loose money when customers collect this items from other shops and just come to my shop for the services so with this cosmetics I will make more money for my business and repaying my loan will not be stressfull thanks.
