Business plan

General instructions
In conjunction with your opportunity analysis report in the previous assessment,
complete the business plan for your business idea. The business plan should be
written for the manager of a financial institution from whom you are seeking funds to
establish the business. You may assume that you have $50,000 of your own capital to
contribute, but must borrow the rest if needed.
In preparing your business plan, you should follow the guidelines contained in Topic
5 and in your textbook from pages 156“169. Further information will be provided on
Your business plan should include, but need not be limited to, the following
executive summary
