About Me

I am aged 28 years old and married with one child, i have worked with two communication companys as a sales person namely yu and airtel kenya dealing with their products , i done this for two years and since i had a passion in relating with people and traveling, i decided to start a business that i would be doing direct sales /marketing and with the knowledge i had accuared when in the two companys i decided deal with mobile phone accesories / assorted electricals and electronics, i had saved twenty thousand shilling and i decided to use this as capital although the business is good i have been having the problem of goods since i didnt have enough capital and i believe if i can get enough money my business can get to another level.

My Business

I have a business where i am dealing with mobile phone accessories like chargers memory cards ,batteries, housings, screen protectors , lines,plus assorted electricals which i supplies to retailers who own accessories shops in various towns and by doing this i save them the time and money they can use when coming to Nairobi to shop for the same goods. It has been a good business because they even have my number so in case they need something they just order and i organise myself and i never let them down. I have one employee but as the business grows i hope to add more people and that way i will also create employment currently i have about 100 retailers who rely on me to supply them and I believe many more can be found if i had a financial support. .Thanks a lot Zidisha team i believe with your support I can achieve my dreams.
