Dear Ms. Sara,
I am writing this letter to propose my agriculture business expansion, and to request you to grant me a loan for that.
I have been in the agriculture field for more than ten years. I believe I have gotten enough experience and expertise to expand my business. However, I do not have the required capital. I do not want to dilute the ownership of my business by seeking a partner and do not want to lose control by seeking an investor. Therefore, I want to request a loan.
The total amount needed is $[X]. I am attaching a detailed proposal with this letter, that also lists the components of this money. I have gone through the available options of the bank, and I would like to choose the five-year repayment schedule, with 7% interest. I am also attaching a detailed loan application, and a filled loan form, with this letter as well.
I request you to accept my application and grant me this loan soon. I have ordered some new machinery, and its payment is due on 5th October 20XX. I will be very grateful if you release the payment before that.
Looking forward to your positive reply and acceptance.
