About Me

I am a young lady aged 26 years,I decided to venture into business because I needed money to help myself support in school fee's, hostel rent,and food during my college life, I didn't want to depend on people too much because I had tried relying on them but they failed me that's when I saw the need for a cosmetic shop because beauty product are on high demand for lady's and men too and I knew most of my clients and customers will be my college mates, I wish I get a higher capital so that I can create employment to other youths who are unemployed through having a bigger wholesale shop and more than one branches country wide

My Business

I run a small cosmetic shop in a shopping center which generates a little cash that helps me survive each day,besides the cosmetic shop I also make door mats by myself and sell them through which I get some cash that is a side hustle that helps me run my other business and expenses. In the boutique I sell hair weaves of different types, jell, hair oil, petroleum jelly, earnings, necklaces, rings,nail polish, nail file nail cutter,hair sprays and so many other products.

Project Proposal

I would like to restock my business during this Christmas holidays festive season because most people will need new looks for they will be traveling to different parts of the country for the celebration. Two this can help me also create an employment opportunity to a fellow Kenyan so that he or she can be able to cater for their daily needs
