I am currently student doing Bsc course in herbal medicine. I already hold a diploma which entitles me to trade in herbal products.
I had to go and do degree course at the university as the law has changed and all herbalist need to obtain a university degree so we can be equipped with better skills, so when we graduate I will be qualified Practitioner
i love and admire working with natural medicine as it is the best way to stay healthy. This gives me the chance to help and guide people to maintain good health so they can be happy and productive. In addition this will allow me to look after my young kids and fulfil my dreams by graduating and setting up a great example for my kids.
I have setup an online business where I sell herbal supplements and the business seems great, but j have problem in raising cash to develop and expand the business.
I Ibelieve with the right investment the business can succeed and I will be able to pay the loan back working 2 years maximum. I already have considerable amount of clients and able to expand my client base, but with no considerable capital, I find it hard to move on.
The capital will be needed to:
-enhance my online selling channel (the website)
- rent small office
- advertising (local paper, flyers etc.)
curreny my my business runs from
As well as I have selling point in our local market Saturday's & Sundays. This is helping me to introduce my products to the locals and it is a cost effective advertising for my business
2 years ago I was a business seller on Amazon my products sold to over 91 countries. My mother not well and had to travel abroad to be beside my mother. Sadly she passed away 3 years ago and due to me being away as well as the impact of me loosing my mother, my business declined and sales fell. I had to close the business down and concentrated on university.
12 months ago I re-launched the business and I am very positive I can succeed again, but the start up capital has been an issue
