My name is Joseph Mwamba a Zambian with a national green registration card. I come from the Northern Zambia in the region of Kasama town. I grew up in the village and life was very hard for me. I completed my grade 12 at Wusakile Secondary School in Kitwe. I could not further my education because on long the way my Uncle who was sponsoring me died and during that time my dream was shattered.
I started looking for a job and I got one as shop keeper were I did raise some little money to begin part time studies at Zambia institute of business and industrial practice ZIBSIP. In 2013 I graduated and I hold a Diploma in Information and technological studies IT.
I married with two beautiful children a boy and a girl , these children have inspired me to work hard because I do want them to struggle in their lives. I want to see them go to the University of Zambia to purse their Careers in different discipline of faculty. My hobby is watching English Premier League and travelling.
I supply stationary business and I ran cyber café. I provide internet services and my business location is in main central business of town. With stationary business I make a lot of money because I also print book, receipts, calendars and office stationary and it sell very fast. I choose stationary business because it is highly profitable and is in high demand. Per week I generate K 1000.00 or more depending on market trends of the business.
As for the Internet café' I provide internet services to the general public especially students on research, laminating, printing and typing services.
However, the profits I make I use them to grow the business, sponsor my two children, improve our living standard home.
With the fund I want to raise, I would to buy 5 computers to add in my internet shop, due to increasing demand by the customers coming to browse and do their research. The benefit I will get out this addition of computers is that it will add more revenue to the business as I will have more customers access internet services.
Before I was generating K 250 from the 3 computers and now that I will add 5 more computers am expected to making between K 500 to 700 as increase in profits.
