    Hi! I don’t know if it is the right seminar i am looking for, but my concern is more on writing a business plan and raising funds to fund my intended business. i am working with the same line of business right now and planning to set-up on my own but i have no capital to start up with. the business has good profitability and can compete abroad that’s why i really want to start on my own.
