About Me

My Name is Kenneth Ochuka and my journey to start and run my cleaning company has not been easy. In my journey towards establishing my own cleaning company, I encountered numerous hardships that tested my perseverance and determination. Overcoming these challenges allowed me to achieve my important goal and transform my dreams into reality.

The road to success was not smooth; I faced financial struggles, lack of experience, and fierce competition. However, rather than succumbing to these obstacles, I used them as stepping stones to propel myself forward. I developed a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve and adopted a mindset of resilience and adaptability.

My Business

My business is a cleaning company based in Nakuru, Kenya. We provide professional cleaning services for residential and commercial properties. Our services include regular cleaning, deep cleaning, window cleaning, carpet cleaning, and post-construction cleaning.

Cleaning services are in high demand because people and businesses require clean and hygienic environments. Cleanliness is essential for maintaining a healthy and comfortable living or working space. With busy schedules and limited time, many individuals and businesses prefer to outsource their cleaning needs to professional companies like ours.

I chose this kind of business because I saw a significant need for reliable and efficient cleaning services in my local area. Additionally, I believe in the importance of cleanliness and its impact on people's well-being and productivity.

Our typical costs include employee wages, cleaning supplies and equipment, transportation expenses, and marketing/advertising costs. Revenue is generated through client payments for our services.

Profits from the business are used for various purposes. Some of the common uses include reinvestment in the company to improve our services and expand our reach, upgrading equipment and technology, and marketing efforts to attract more clients. Additionally, profits may be allocated towards personal goals such as providing for the education of my siblings or taking care of the needy.

Project Proposal

I plan to use the funds to purchase some equipment needed for my washing company. Equipment such as pressure washers, vacuum cleaners, and scrabbers can help put me at the top of the game. I will appreciate any small funding that the community can offer. Thank you.

    The first project was to start-up an agribusiness to help start my after campus career. I resorted to starting a washing company that has since seen me take projects and improve my life and that of the people working for the company.
