My Business

My Business.
My business is in IT industry. My business is called Digitek
Cyber Links.My network providers are the Orange Telecoms
Limited(former Orange telecoms limited).The reason is that their
servers are of high speed ,making more customers to come for this
rare services in the town.My business is a Cyber café and I operate
within the Nairobi Central Business District(C.B.D),along the Ngara
street.In my room I have currently 7 computers , each loaded with
80GB memory . I started this business two years ago after I had saved
enough for the capital to operate. The business is strategically
located in Haraka building,2nd floor room 227,opposite Ukwala
supermarket.My business is licensed with the County authorities and
issued with an annual trade permit number E0081476 to operate business for the next 12 months period after which I will renew my business license . I normally open my business from7:30am and closes at 7 pm everyday except on Sundays and Public Holidays. In my business I offer services like Photocopying, internet
browsing,Skyping,printing & ,scanning .I also sell local talk-time pre-pay credit cards from various communication companies like Safari-com,Airtel, Yu & Orange.With the talk time recharge cards,makes me maintain my daily customers keeping in mind that I have them on daily basis for their services.I offer the services to my loyal customers with much care,respect and honesty .In a normal peak week my profit ranges between 110 to 150 Dollars, after all my expenses.
With the injection of some capital from the Zidisha Microfinance,I am planning to extend my business by buying 2 more computers so as to cater more customers in a go without much waiting. This will make my small business to grow more and also I will be extending the operating hours due to the flocking of customers for the services .This will increase my weekly income and also tap the ever growing demand of cyber skyping services, which most of my competitors within don’t
provide to their customers due to lack of facilities to cater the accessories. Thank you in advance for the support.
