I am young entrepreneur building an online bargain retail business. This started as a way to make ends meet in university but has growth to become a source of income beyond school.
The business is called Below 1000 as it sells items below ksh 1000. This is an attainable price for the majority of the population despite low incomes. I source quality affordable items and sell them.
The business is focused on youth aged 15-25 yrs. This is a very large percentage of the Nairobi market and actually Kenya in General. Growth has been quick and steady and with more reinvestment we aim to take control of our costs of goods sold by importing for ourselves the goods we sell. We have outgrown the third parties we used to use because we could not negotiate any further the prices they gave us. In the long term we aim to vertically integrate upwards to have full control of the costs of the business and this loan will go into the first consignment of import materials we need.
We look forward to working with you
