On it must be all the things that must identify you as the owner of the business or writer of the business plan. So include the  name, address and telephone number of the owners. And now add the date of this proposal or loan request.  If a consultant like Complete Full Marks Consultants Limited is writing it or you, then you must indicate this on this page too.

The next step is the Executive Summary. This is the summary of all the segments of this plan especially, the outcome of the feasibility analysis. Therefore, it must show explicitly how much loan you need. The Summary serves to give  loan officer, investor, or employee a thumbnail sketch of the business and  purpose for writing the business plan.

In this part of the proposition, tell your reader  what you want. For instance, “Anekivin Limited  seeks a N10,000,000 seasonal line of credit to augment cash flows during cyclical construction periods. This line is to be secured by inventory, accounts receivable and certificate of deposit”. This is also the collateral page.

Or” Karisas  Technologies seeks a N2,000,000 installment loan to purchase two programmable milling machines to service a long term production contract for the Micro chip equipment. Loan to be secured by equipment and contract proceeds”.
