About Me

My names are Janet Awuor Ogweno born in a family of six, three boys and three girls. i was born in the year 1983/Dec/23 in kisii district and am the third born in the family i’m married with two kids and based in narok a business woman by profession and major mostly in cereal, (majorly maize).I do maize business because it sells faster and can be local found in our area, though it does not fetch a lot of profit but you are sure of what you will get as your profit.

This business enables me to get daily expanses fo my family and also to enable my children to go to school.

My Business

I am a Business woman majoring on cereals (maize) I have my own maize store which I run personally, In this business mainly the demand is high during school season as most school purchase for meals to school pupils and to individual customers for their families, the profit that I make from this business will enable me to repay loans.

In my business the major challenge I face is transportation of maize to the store during rainy season due to bad road conditions.

Through my Business am also able to pay revenues to the municipality councils, my store rent to my landlord and other miscellaneous expanses when am stalling my store as I cannot do it myself through this process i hire some men's around to help me to do this and also offloading.
