I believe that it is an opportune time to start a business like Chagadama Christian Bookstore since the retail services industry in Maryland is currently worth $350 million; in Salisbury, the industry is estimated to be worth $20 million. Furthermore, since new small businesses are being launched with great frequency, the potential market for our services is growing exponentially. I bring more than 20 years of technical repair and sales skills to the table and am investing $60,000 personally to start this business. I anticipate being able to repay my loan to the company beginning in August 1999. So as to ensure the success of the new location and the business I will hire a marketing manager who will be in charge of all the marketing of the two locations.
