Loan Proposal

Dear Lenders,

It is indeed my Pleasure to apply for the Stated Loan to Purchase a Van that will enable me transport my cakes to my customers .
The type of Transport am looking for should be able to address the following :
1) Affordable
2)Capacity to load all my cakes
3)In good condition
Am looking at a Van that can cost $5,800 this of course is a reconditioned Car not exactly new.
This Van will enable me reach my customers in good time and i can cover a bigger area , currently i use an old pickup which breaks down quite often and on many occasions it breaks down before reaching the destination .
With an assured transport both the supplier and the customer are assured of time delivery time.
Am also convinced that with good transport we are able to reach more customers and in essence grow our customer base ad profitability.
If the business can increase by 15% of our gross sales will definitely appreciate.
