My Business

I started Electrical Services Business in the year 2013 after My shop business was burnt down and was displaced after Election Violence in 2007-2008 I came back home and joined Gusii institute of technology from 2011 to 2013 and when I graduated I started my own business electrical installation Services both commercial and residential building and others that goes with electrical Engineering. My customers prefer my business services for my professionalism, consultation and also I sell them genuine Electrical materials and I Install for them too. My Business has challenges too since it is young and growing, some customers do not pay in time and others sometimes do not pay as they give fake excuses of paying and get loses of loosing time following up debts. Yes my Business has started making good profits but am also looking for ways that can enable me to increase my stock of electrical materials as currently am operating from an open market but soon i want to rent a premises in Town as am currently waiting for a premise under construction.
