I am making a loan request based on a detailed financial projection, which demonstrates that by combining $85,000 of my own assets with a loan of $155,000, I can open a computer store and offer consulting services. I will consider securing the loan using the equity in my home as collateral. The loan will allow me to hire a full-time salesperson, a full-time technician, and two part-time salespeople and technicians.

My conservative estimate of revenue and cash flow indicates that I will make a profit after three months and will become self-sustaining after six months. I currently have two small business contracts for supplying 30 computers, and I expect to have a third proposal approved within the next three weeks. Within one year, I expect to double my sales and technical staff to meet growing demand.
