About Me

I am 35 years old with a passion for improving the environment and helping other to profit from the same. I am college educated in Sociology, but entrepreneurship gives me more fire in the belly. This has led me to different areas of livelihood and every experience has added value to what I intend to stick to now, which is making coal briquettes from repurposed organic waste.

My Business

I make coal briquettes from common waste products. Charcoal, waste paper, macadamia shells, dried leaves and vegetable material, waste vegetable cooking oil and any other applicable material serves as raw material.
I then sell these briquettes to the local homes and businesses. I also get orders from established entities in nearby towns and shopping centres.

Loan Proposal

Add stock to my business.
Currently I buy packed water in bulk pallets at wholesale prices. After sales as a retailer, I manage to turn a profit of up to 80% depending on the market and time range. Maximum time spent to resell has been 7 days.
