Hi thank you once again zidisha for offering me an opportunity to kindly request for another loan,l offer money transfer servicesi.e(agency which include mpesa,equity,coop,familykcb,airtelmoney) and l sell accessory,electrical, mobile phones,padlocks. The money transfer is important because customer work so easy,efficient receiving n depositing money and fast,paying bills like rent,electricity,water becomes convenient without any hustle. Accessory are important especially chargers,earphones, phones battery(phone)usb cable, communication becomes easy. For security reason l do sell padlock that would secure customers house.
My revenue for this month mpesa commission is USD340, for rest l haven't received but for equity is USD130,Coop Agency USD80, Kcb Agency USD50airtel money USD20,while for family bank agency is USD40.
The whole profits reinvest back to may business because the demand always goes since l do offer quality services.

Loan Proposal

Hey Lenders,

Given chance with loan l will be amounting to USD 1212 l will utilise the loan in my business . I will top up the amount equity agency in terms of float of which it will bring big results in commission increase. In terms of transactions paying rent, bills, deposits, withdrawal hence positive response in commission.
Am positive am about it because sometimes l do transactions with equity agency and am left even without float to cater to the needs of my costumers.
