My names are Bephine Nyawera I grew up in a small village called Kisasi in Western Province.I come from a very humble background of 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I am the eldest in our family. My dad passed away due to Aplastic Anaemia leaving my mum a widow who is jobless, but being the eldest in our home we joined hands with my mum to do small scale farming inorder to help my siblings to go to school to achieve their dreams. Life has not been easy the small shamba we had was not enough to produce for large sale of good to the market hence a friend of mine introduced me to the world of selling second hand clothes.
I looked fora job and my friend had a business stall where she could sell a bale of used second hand clothes for children. I could help market the clothes for her in institutions selling to teachers and workers second hand clothes for their children. The business grew so big until my boss now was able to bring and we sell about three bales of mixed clothes including kids clothes, mens shirts and women skirts. With time she encouraged me and from my little savings I was able to start my own Second hand clothing (Mitumba) business. So far I have only one bale of used women dresses but I am hoping that with the help of Zidisha lenders they will help me to grow in business and buy and sell more bales of used clothes and also to grow my family my kids will be able to go to school without fee arrears.
I would like to purchase more bales of different clothing lines for my clients. With different types of bales and more bales it will enable me to serve my customers efficiently and my profit too will double up. These will improve both my life and family and my customers life status tremendously.
