My Business

my business deals with selling second hand cloths.i sells for both men and women.i sells in parts,tops,top dresses and trousers.i do hawking because i do not have a permanent place or a shop.i goes door to door hawking because my customers are housewives and people with their business who can not get time of going to the marketplace.i started my business with a capital of 2000thousand ksh and has grown to a capital of 15000thousand ksh.my profit has increase also to 20000thausand ksh.this profit increase has motivated me to look for a shop that i will use to keep and sell other products and also keep new clothes.i continued with my business all along in Nairobi n it has been gud all through out the year.pls zidisha team i want to open a green groce now becouse in this month of january cloth bussiness is low bt pple need to eat rether than buying cloth.for me its a nice idea bt i dont have the all capital need to open one though i have the kiosk needed for bussiness.
