My Business

My business is Organo gold.I am in coffee business,Coffee is the second sold commodity after oil in the world.Everyone takes coffee or tea for break fast.I intend to enlarge my business All over East Africa,and since the company has not get opened its doors in most of the Africa Countries i will use the money to sent the coffee to them as samples.Also i would like to help other people who can not afford to join the business to do so,because the joining fee is close to 22,000 kenya shillings.The profit magine is good,Wholesale per box of coffee is 1500 kenya shillings while retail goes sales for 3000 kenya shillings.

I have since expanded my business thanks to my lenders in zindisha,I have invested in chicken farming and i am seing great results.i started with only few chicks and now i have over 300 dream with this new business is to became a supplier in most of the hotels around.I would request my renders and zindisha to kindly consider giving me a second loan so as to achieve my goal of 1000 chicks by september.

Loan Proposal
