About Me

I am a 27years lady, married and from a family of 3 and i am the second child of my parents.
I completed Junior High School and since there was no money to further my education I went into business. I am a hard worker lady and nothing was too difficult for me to do because I wanted to change the status quo.
This business has helped me to be able to assist my kid sister to the university, though I did not have the chanyto go myself but I am very proud seeing my sister through school.
I buy foodstuffs from Farmers and send it to the city and sell it to retailers and when the bumper season elapse I sell frozen foods , snacks within my community.
This has been sustaining me and my family till now.

My Business

I purchased food stuffs from Farmers at my village and sell them to retailers in the city during the bumper season.

I am also into selling of frozen foods, eg chicken, meat, hoofs gizzards and many more.
These frozen food are used on the daily basis hence there us market for them since no one can go without food with meat.

Project Proposal

Firstly, I want to thank Zidisha for helping me and the brother and a friend who introduced me ,Food bless you all.
I sell frozen foods , mostly animal products of all types.
Demand is very high in my area so I have to almost go to buy new ones to stock my small fridge.
This affect customers and add extra cost due to transportation to me.

Getting a bigger freezer will help me serve my customers anytime they visit to buy from me and will help me earn more income.
