Re: Business loan request for $50,000

Dear Lender’s Name,

The aim of this letter is to request a small business loan of $50,000 to improve and upgrade my restaurant.

My business is registered and approved by the health department. I have been in business for the past five years and have shown a profit each year.

One of the reasons my restaurant is so successful is because it is the only restaurant in the area of a five mile radius that serves authentic Indian food.

We purchase fresh produce daily and prepare several dishes that represent the cuisine of both North and South India.

To meet the growing demand for our specialty, I need to expand the kitchen, add some new stove tops and refrigerators as well as expand the dining area. The shop next door has agreed to sell me their premises for expansion at a fair market price.

There are several other different ethnic restaurants in the area that are also prospering, and I believe that the market for India cuisine is growing. My restaurant is crowded every night especially on the weekends.

I have already invested most of my profits in the restaurant and require the loan to expand in order to meet demand.

Please see the attached business plan that outlines my financial projection for the next five years and clearly states my assets to date.

If you have any questions, I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or at Thank you for your attention to my loan application.
