About Me

I come from a humble background where enrolled to a form four level.
Due to lack of school fees my studies ended there.
I start as a hawker then employed for some years till now I own my business .
Our land is on a valley where there are several rivers. We use fish and bath in this rivers. There is a forest that it suround our land and we use to hunt wild animals in it.
My child want to be a doctor when he grows up, this make me feel good because this was my wish when I was young like him.
In my childhood I love hunting wild animals and gathering wild fruits.

My Business

I am operating a clothing stall in CBD where I sell all kinds of wear. Due to demand of fashions my business is doing well and profit had risen from 5%to8%.
I chose this kind of business because in my area there are few people dealing with it.
I started with small cost but in term of revenue it is collected annually which make easy to raise.
I use my profit to reinvest, and the the remaining I pay school fees of my child whose is in kindergarten.
