  2. vivek singh chandel says

    Hi,
    I am a small business man from a small district of Madhya pradesh. I am a partner in firm called m/s. Ashra super bazaar. Its a multy brand showroom on FMCG plateform. We are four partners and four employees. Our staff is very hardworking. We took over this venture from our friends one year back. When we took over monthly sales were in between 4 to 6 lakhs (400000-600000) in a years time we managed to double it and continuously able to cross 11 lakhs mark. We believe we have the potential to do better and reach to 30 lakhs per month but we are stuck. We need money to move forward and dominate the market. We tried all options but failed. You are our hope. We need 30 lakhs rs. If you can help us plz get back to us.
