As a young and dedicated person, after completing my High School I started with my dream job as a mushroom farmer. It my believe that will strive successfully in this industry so as to be able to support my and children in the future.

My Business

I started my mushroom business through my personal savings. Over the years I also got support from family and friends to support the business. As the years go by, there was high demands of mushrooms, when calls from hotels, restaurants, homes do place in their orders which as at now the demand for my mushrooms at with my supply. It is through this that a friend introduced me to for assistance.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to expand the business by building more shelves. Have more money materials like saw dust, millet lime, rice brown and so on.

I would also like to employ more people to aid me in the business.
