My Business

I Normally deal with saloon work for now and cosmetics and more to that am in Agribusiness to cater for the Family . Previously I have been dealing with stationery work on distribution of exam materials due to covid 19 so many schools and associates in religion closed down their businesses and I was forced to stay at home. Previously I had gone to Hair dressing and beauty college so I thought of utilizing my skills learnt in school and opened up a saloon business and got support from family members with initial start up Machines and I was ready to go. The business have ventured a number of customers . those customers needs some Services which I have skills but I don’t have the Equipment which if funded they will cater up to at least 70% of the customers needs. The initial cost to buy items will be 65% purchase price on the base limit of service will be 15 % per every customer therefore I will realize the initial cost minimal margin if I get 5 customers [75%] therefore when I deduct my expense on feeding family. I also save for my daughter schooling and clothing.
Best regards
