my name is francis itengo omongoluk and i am interested in your services. I went to kakapel primary school in western Kenya where i completed my primary education. Life was not so easy that time whereby i used to walk several kilometers every morning to school. you can imagine walking that long bear foot with too much cold in my mountain location. My focus in life and hard work propelled me to completing my primary education. I managed to pass well and emerged the first in my school and i went to kolanya boys high school for my secondary education. I worked hard and also managed to complete secondary education. After high school i never wanted to stay idle after lacking money to go to college. I had to look for some job to do to earn a living. I landed a small job in a private security firm and that is what i have been depending upon to support me financially. i saved some money monthly till it was enough to buy some groceries for sale and that is how my small business came up.
I sell groceries to the people around my locality. I decided to sell groceries because i came to learn that they are the ones on daily use in many households. i chose to deal with these goods because they are readily available all year long in the market. I use some of the profits other house needs and i spare some for business growth.
From the grocery business I have been doing I am glad to say that I discovered a new business opportunity and that is beekeeping. I decided to spare some cash from my business in addition to the loan I received from zidisha and managed to purchase some beehives. I currently have ten beehives in my apiary. With the harvest coming from the beehives I am sure my revenue will increase.
With this funds raised I intend to use it to buy honey harvesting equipment for my beekeeping project. I will buy two complete bee suits for Kshs 8000 (4000*2). I will also buy 1 smoker for 3,800. A hive tool will cost Kshs 1000. a bee brush will cost kshs 700. Uncapping fork will cost Kshs 650. The money will improve my project by enabling me harvest quality honey for my customers. this will in turn increase my income. After I purchase this equipment I expect my profit to increase by atleat 2%.
