About Me

My name is Wilfred Njuguna, 24 year old college student. Found passion and possibilities of a bright future working as either line cook or chef. But my hunger for becoming a chef is growing much faster than I expected. I see mistakes where many lack to figure out or even want to work on. I see potential where there is lack of motivation. I see lack of appreciation and heartless non participant people in very important positions. I also see and experience the 'special treatment' which can be devastating to a team of underpaid and overworked staff. I have many of the VERY important skills and attributes many lack to have such as - cleanliness, loudspeaker, very attentive, energetic/hyperactive, love to learn, passion. My weaknesses are : plating, colorblind.
I never was allowed to make food at home as my mother would always make food because she didn t trust me with using stoves or anything that could be destructive. I couldnt even clean the dishes... So as the years passed by I grew up without ever learning how to cook anything else than eggs. I was useless. But now I'm open to believe I can overcome and become a very strong and experienced chef who can share his knowledge as this is what I live for.. experiences.

My Business

I'm currently working in fast food services where I serve short order cook and dinner cook in a small coffee shop. I always work for myself since I hope to make more than $35,000 per year in which I make Ksh. 37000 per month. It sometimes depends on the number of sales I make per day since it varies. I know that I can manage and promote my coffee shop to a big restaurant some day. So, The answer to that question, “How much do coffee shop owners make?”, obviously “depends” on what type of coffee business you have, your volume of sales, your pricing point, and your costs (and other factors as well, such as existing debt, etc.).
In addition to start-up costs, you should have cash on hand to cover all of your operating expenses for the first six months

Loan Proposal

A loan of $1 will help to add more stock to my coffee shop business, this will made me to make a large sale and make more profit. This will help me to make money and pay for my university fee since I want to study a bachelor of catering and hotel management which will help me to make my dream of running a restaurant come true
