Purchase more cereals for my cereals/ grocery store

My last loan was of tremendous help to me and my family at large. I needed to increase the space I had for accommodating more staff at the office where I practiced freelance research from. I bought a larger table and chairs, a water dispenser and few other smaller amenities that my staff needed. This in turn helped me increase my earnings because each new staff member brought an average of $3 per day in returns, helping sustain the business through some of the roughest tides since I opened. Even as I move on for reasons I've explained in my intro above, I am always thankful that you took your time and trusted me to invest and repay your funds through this platform. I'll similarly oblige myself to always work hard on your offer to make the most of it in returns. Of principal importance to me, and what I pride myself in the most (ALL THANKS TO THE LOAN YOU GAVE ME!) is that I have been able to smoothly sustain my family through some of the worst financial difficulties this side of the world has experienced. I am always grateful to you. Every cent you invest in my business will go into good use. I wish to go back to the university when I am earning more, and certainly the next loan is a step in that direction. The extra investment I'm making in the store will help me add more cereals (they're the more expensive of the stock I need) and I've only managed to stock them in low quantities.

Hoping that with your kind hearts of support as before, you can help me raise the remaining funds. Thank you.

Real estate

Good day ladies and gentlemen, I just wanted to say thank you to you all. You have truly helped me achieve my goals and more, the community and tenants thank you too. With your money I was able to buy a shipping container, and materials to set it up. Including new water pumps and water trunks, install lighting and electrical wiring. The tenant opened up a barber/salon, cyber cafe, kiosk and wholesale clothing shop. They have requested that I add more container shops so they can all grow their businesses and also open new shops. In a month or two I'll be requesting another loan I hope you all will be able to help again. With the earnings from rent I'll be able to pay back the reminder for the loan in full tomorrow.

Once again let me just say thank you, I truly appreciate your help. Thank you.
