I started my primary education in kitwe at rokana primary school. My parents live in the live so i grew up with my auntie working for the council. During school holiday as kids at home we could go to help auntie at her shop in the market to sell clothes. i started having interest in business from there so when i couldnt do well in school and school fees were a bit of a challenge i started busines with help from my auntie. I order clothes from tanzania and sell them at my stand. The people around my area are good they like helping one another. In my free time i like reading business books.
I sell mainly ladies clothes and shoes. Ladies like fashion as compared to men so clothes for ladies are on demand. I sell quality clothes are good price. When ordering clothes i pay for transport and money transferring charges. Also i pay for security as they come on buses. When i make profit i use it for rent i also add more to my capital so my business keeps growing up.
I wish to thank all my lenders who helped me with the loan i have just finished paying. I am now applying for another loan to enable me expand my business by increasing my inventory of clothes and thereby making more profit. This loan will really help me as i have always been wishing to expand my business. I owe all my success to Zidisha and all my lenders, Once i make profit i use for rent and reinvest the rest in the business. I thank you in advance.
If my business face risks in the economy, I help in my other shops for my auntie so when business for me is not going well i help in selling in my aunties shop and make some money. My aunties shop is very big and she has assorted things apart from clothes there is also women hair and a barbershop. So business is there everyday. I am so trusted and everytime i work there i am paid very well so this is my other option.
