My Business

My business is grocery in Kamukunji estate of Eldoret .
I started the business two years ago ,my source of the earning from church and also the profit I make from the business.
The goods I sell to my customers are green vegetables ,beans,pears ,rice ,groundnuts,tomatoes,dry fish and all kinds of cereals in my shop .
My customers prefer my business because I am always there to serve them and they never find us closed .
The business is profitable because there is high demand for the products that we are selling to them.The estate is over crowded or densely populated .The risk my business faces is scarcity of products due to long drought and also political instability and ethnicity.
My typical monthly cost of running the business is US$ 120 while Gross profit or income before these expenses is usually approximately US$ 275 .
