My Business

The name of my business is called old traford barber shop the name of my business is because am a football fun of Manchester united football club and the home ground of the club is old traford that's why i named my business after that ground. i started the business in February 2010 and its located at Mtwapa town adjacent to Mombasa city the headquarters of coast province. The services i provide is shaving: international cuts, perfect gentlemen cuts,simple cuts etc. this is the only standard barber shop in the area that's why most residents prefer to receive quality services from my business premises. the profitability of the business arises from the fact that i don't deal with fragile and perishable products. the only expense incurred is, the premises rent, service fee for the shaving machines and the license fee. there are no risk apart from electricity shock circuit . the approximate amount per month is 35,000 Kenya shillings. after all expenses the net profit is 30,000 Kenya shillings.i intend to improve the services i offer so as to cope up with the competition arising from other barber shops within the area and that's why am applying for the loan from Zudisha micro finance and i hope this will increase my monthly income to ensure that i face my needs without any problem. this being the month of December holidays, most people in the area prefer to shave in different styles so as to be in fashion and enjoy the holidays and all the fashion cuts are available in my business (old traford barber shop). Am happy to tell my lenders that a part from my main business(Barber shop) I found market for a new business(Splitting wood loggs using a power saw) and I would like to invest in this business so as to expand and increase my income.
