Section 8 – Financials (SMALL BUT IMPORTANT SESSION)
Whether your business is in operation or just an idea yet to start. Please dont guess your financials, make research, enter accurate figure. If your financials is not logical – your application is doomed. I remember I had to seek for help in financials before my selection and even after my selection for the comprehensive business plan development. So, if you already have a business operating; pick up calculator and do the math. Be accurate. If you are yet to start your business; your assuptions must be making lot of sense – dont say you will make 1billion naira within the first year – it’s bullsh**t. Be Reasonable.
