About My Business
Besides Pastoring, I have been selling clothes to offices, shops and estates. I chose this business due to high demand by the people who have no time going to the market because of their working condition and various engagements. I also have a shop where I display clothes for sales. My business is always active and promising as the two business support each other.
The business does not face any risk as I select the best clothes from main market and stock them in my shop and sell others at mobile shop. My monthly cost of running the business is $ 90 while average Gross profit before the expenses is how I normally use profit approximately $ 70
The following is how I use profits from the business:-
10% I give tithes to church
50% Upkeep i.e. food and clothing
20% Payments of school fees
15% bills, rent and emergencies
