About Me

My name is James Mwangi Kamau. I am married with two kids and I live at Utawala near MC Area where I run a hardware shop. I am an accountant by profession and after working for over 10 years in a formal sector I decided to start my business of selling hardware equipments and building materials. I started this business because the job where I was employed before was not paying well and I needed more money to be able to cater the needs of my family and expand financially. The hardware business in our area is more profitable because is a new upcoming real estate and many domiciles are under construction.

My Business

My hardware business is located near a busy road that connects Utawala with the rest of the Estate. Its about 200m from the main road. The name of the shop is "Jaba Hardware" and is a brand name of the whole estate and many customers prefer my goods because they are of high quality and I provide better customer service. I have employed two workers to help deliver the goods to my customers on time. My monthly turnover is Kenya shillings 400000 per month, which gives me a profit of Ksh 20000 after incurring all the expenses . I sell building equipments such as hammers, saws, nails, priers and building materials such as sand, ballast, stones, timber, iron sheets and sanitary wares.
