My Business

I business that I involve myself in is the provisions store that I was helped my mother. Currently Because it is a provisions store, some of the items i trade in are drinks, milk, milo etc. Most of the items we collect on credit bases and sell. i then refund the money when it is sold. Because the items are picked up on credit bases, it is difficult to make maximum profit out of it. Through the little money that i obtain from this shop, i able to cater for myself, my mum and one little young sister that we are staying with. I hope to fully expand and stock my shop in or order to get the more profit out of it.i chose this business because is located at vantage place where many people buy their items from my shop Thank you. i need more stock i more millo and soap of box and more stock .
