The business is located at the heart of Thika town which serves as the commercial hub for three counties with a resident population of 750,000 people. Technology is also one of the fastest growing section of the Kenyan economy. The opportunities are unlimited hence my interest coupled with my passion for the same. Rent, electricity, and spare parts are my main costs. On average i make a net profit of 100 dollars per month. Besides supporting my wife, son, and my parents, I am saving to expand my business by buying a rework machine and phone accessories as per the customers demand.
