born in mwea gategi i went to school in the village and later i managed to join lenana school and went to jomo kenyatta university where i did course information technology .i love technology and its my dream that one day i will have a big venture that empowers other youth in terms of job creation to enable them also earn a living .
Got a loan and managed to stock my mpesa phone .4years down the line I sold the shop and bought a taxi(cab) which I employed someone to drive in Nairobi.the cab makes Ksh 2000 per day thus Ksh 12,000 per week.have run the business for years and managed to buy a second cab and yet employed a driver.now making Ksh 24,000 per week .
Due to the covid 19 I have also added my big Toyota wish to my feet of cabs and I will be driving it to make more money and the government has gone easy on working hours that more business.now running 3vehicles making ksh 6000 per day.
when i get the loan i will add more phones to the shop thus customers will be able to get a variety of products as i look forward to adding more stock in the future since i have to start small and build up the shop to a big venture in the future.i have been tying a get a loan from local lenders but they need security which s hard to get as a youth with a small business venture .Mobile phone s is a good business venture considering everyone need the device to communicate .if i buy one phone at $5.7 i will buy approximately 8 phone ..
