My Business

My business is setup is in a small shopping center and comprises of services such as Cyber service and internet solutions printing services, photography, photocopying services and the latest is a movie store, since am the only one offering such services in this shopping center I have no competitor thus making me to have good profits. Typical monthly cost include rent of 40$, electricity bill of 15$, and labor/ wages of 40$. My monthly cost of goods sold is about 250$ and total sales revenue is about 700$. This leaves me with gross profit of about 300$. Apart from this am also venturing in to farming which is in its early stages so far I have onion and water melons which have about two months since plantation and they are doing well

Project Proposal

am still in the process of expanding the farm and I intend to use the funds purposely for purchasing seedlings and casuals payments. A part of the farm is already producing fresh glossaries and the market is very good considering the weather at the moment.
