My name is Richard Momanyi. I was born in Kisii county which is in the western part of Kenya. The main occupation there is farming and my parents are small scale farmers. I grew up helping them in the farm and we also used to keep some domestic animals like cows and goats.
I am married and looking forward to starting a family with of two children.
I do business in the coastal town of Mombasa city where I sell household items in a small shop. I sell items such as cooking oil, maize and wheat flour, sugar etc. I serve people who live in my neighborhood.
I make around $100 per month but I am hoping to increase this amount as I keep expanding the business. This amount will inch upwards due to continued support I am getting from Zidisha.
I will invest the money in my shop by buying more stock that will hopefully increase my sales and profit. I will buy sugar and cooking oil from wholesale shops and then retail them at a profit from my outlet.
Pay It Forward
