About Me

My Business

My business "jairo movie shop" is a small growing movie shop where i sell movies do photocopy sell phone accessories,design wedding cards and repair phones,printing services.
The business is fast growing, i need more capital so to invest more and double my profits.
My area is a small shopping center where lots of youths like to watch movies play station games and using the internet chatting or social media, this made me realize a demand in movies and phone accessories due to advanced technology,
my cousin who works as an attendant in the shop also repairs phones so a customer can purchase a spare and fix his phone in the same place,people take pictures passports and also photocopies,
I make a profit of 200 to 400$ a month and use it to pay rent pay my cousin salary buy food and add more accessories in stocking the shop.
With ideas from other business men and friends whom are older than me in business i have been able to to now divide the shop into two and subdivided a small section for play station games room due to customers demand.
