My Business

after completing my secondary education i went to rift valley institute and and studied beauty. after graduating i came back home and put up a small cosmetic shop. it has been running very well since then. it has been profitable to me, to my family and also to my customers. i thank God as he has blessed me mightily. i have been experiencing customer in large numbers. this is due to politeness, respect and understanding i have to my customers. they also say how god my cosmetics are. the businesses has some challenges such as some customers might fail to fulfill their pledge after offering them what they need with no money. this bring loss in business. fear of robbers. high licenses fee. a friend introduce me to zidisha and told me to submit my application. she assured me that with the support of zidisha my business will expand. i therefore did that and since zidisha has accepted me, its my prayer and hope that my business will now have an increase in profit through the support of zidisha.
