Buy & Sell Kenya is a business for Selling Household & Kitchen essentials. The Business has been in operation for 2yrs now and i can say that despite the Corvid pandemic, it's been running smoothly only that we had to stop out of town delivery or deliveries for outside Nairobi.
I am the founder of an online business called Buy & Sell Kenya which is for Selling Household & Kitchen essentials. The Business has been in operation for sometime like 2years now and i can say that despite the Corvid pandemic, it's been running smoothly and has not been hit hard like other businesses. However we had to stop deliveries for other counties that are outside Nairobi due to the risk of the pandemic. It's a purely online store where i sell on retail then have the items delivered once an order has been confirmed.
Additionally i'm also employed at Rivieres Finance where i get a monthly income of Ksh150,000. If the business is not doing well. I can repay my loan from the monthly salary.
