I got employed in an electrical firm where I worked for two years, in 2007 I quit employment to persue my passion in business.
I started small, selling electrical applliences from a make shift platform on the roadside, then I was determined to open a shop within a year.I planned well and in a years time, I was able to achieve my objective. My shop is located in kitengela town in a busy street. My hobbies are jogging, going to gym and part time actor in the local commedy programmes. I love people and making friends.
My business mainly deals with electricals and electronics for sale.I buy goods from wholesale stores and retail them to my clients.This involves, bulbs, solar panels, solar bulbs,electrical cables, lamp holders, and general electrical appliances.The cost of bulbs range from $5 to$10, solar panels from $50 to $150 and expect a profit of between 50% to 75%. Being an urban centre, there is high demand for my products and can do replacements once or twice a week.My profits goes to basic need, home keeping and Rent paying and school fees.
