Distributing milk for local dairy farmers

The first loan was a success. It helped me increase the milk volumes. Now that we are heading to dry season here- when the demand for fresh milk is high, I want to further improve as well as maintain the existing volumes. To do this in a more effective way, I have plans to establish a bulking point- a centralized place where I will be collecting milk. This will give me an upper hand among my competitors as well as help be build trust and loyalty with farmers in the area.
To implement this, I have just posted a new loan proposal and look up to your support.
Merry Christmas and happy new year all.
Thank you.

Inventory of household items

I am planning to move to a bigger space due to rapid business expansion. There is a next-door neighbor who has decided to retire at the end of this year and I am hoping to take up his space as part of my business-expansion plans. I need more cash to undertake this transition. For this reason, I have decided to use my savings to clear this loan so that I can take a bigger one to enable me acquire the new place.

Time is of the essence, hence the decision to clear the loan sooner because I am afraid the space will be taken by another investor if I don't act fast.
