My Business

i get my income through selling chips and other food commodities and fruits.most commodities i get them across the border because they are cheaper so when i come to sell i get profit.this has really helped to boost my income and living standards has improved.the profits u get i use them to pay school fees for my children and buy them clothes i have even purchased furnitures gor my house through the prifits i receivef from the business last month my life has greatly improved and am so happy for that.

Project Proposal

I would like to increase on my stock buy i creading on the no.of bales that i surely buy.Since corona it has been quite difficult for us traders to get new bales cheaply because of the travel restrictions put on the goods imported.That's why if i get this loan it will help me a great deal to enable me add more stock to my business.
