Am currently doing farming business in the rural part of the country and selling the produce to the urban centre of the country.I will use this loan to buy more farming tools and fertilizer,I will pay back this loan with money from the sale of the farm produce.Members of the community and other customers prefer my goods due their good quality and they are affordable compared to my competitors.My business is profitable because the produce is always more than the capital used.The risk my business faces is drought but we mitigate that with irrigation.My monthly income is around USD750 my monthly Expenses is around USD600
I will use the loan if granted me to purchase farming equipment (hand cultivating machine)and fertilizers.The benefit will be increase in quantity and quality of my farming produce and this will result to more monthly additional income of a round USD225 these money will be used to improve my farming hence gross result of better life of I and my family.Am requesting lenders to support me because am not in a position to it by myself though my wish is to see my farming expanding.
