My last loan was used to up meant for maintaining of vehicles that were already set for delivery. I am base in Calabar, Cross River State in the South South zone of Nigeria. I travel for to South West, Lagos State where we have the only functional seaport (tican). After every successful deal with the major importers I will need to shift the cars to Calabar for delivery to the final users.
The loan has actually made a different because we no more have delays in servicing our fleet.
Our earning has increase from #280000 a week to #350000 a week. The fast we're on delivery the more profit we make.
We use our increase earning to fix cars that have broken down in the course of delivery.
Our achievement so far, we've been able to expand our network through Facebook page, Business WhatsApp. My brother whom was working with me, through our assistance has been able to secure a job with Biase Plantation.
Around my neighborhood, we have an ancient college, then called The Polytechnic Calabar and now it has been converted to Cross River State University. A place to visit. At the outskirt, we also have the Qua Falls resort. In my immediate compound, the building though new is sited on the land of an old renowned candle factory.
