About Me

my childhood was not on a silver platter as my mum really had to hassle to fend for us despite being employed and I always thought some day away from working for n organization or individual i would do it for me by having a side business to get me there. I did not have luxuries that kids from today enjoy but glad I had a descent education and took it seriously.
I once overcame a hardship by opting to baby sit for my neighbor as at the time we were on forced unpaid leave due to current economic issues
tourism is very unique for us in my land followed by farming and at the ed if the day this people need decent clothing
I eventually want to be self employed and put all my effort into my business and also set precede to my peers and again create employment.
Am passionate about fashion and look forward to having a clothing line with my initials one day.
it is wonderful do have a passion and drive for your vision.
as a child i loved knitting for my dolls and making them fashionable .
started by business just selling stuff to my fellow colleagues and making a profit and going back to wholesale shops to get more
my children want to go places my daughter a neuron surgeon my son pilot and i know i need funds to take the m this far.

My Business

I sell clothes, jewellery, shoes and handbags and goods that are trending in the market at the time and am also employed
everybody needs an aspect of fashion and in my opinion it doesn't matter what you do but when your smart things always fall in place and people will always want to look nice
i chose this business because i act as the guinea pig as i love to look nice and people started asking where i buy my stuff so instead of directing them i offered to deliver at and extra fee and word went round and with time i got clients who will call and describe what they need i advice depending of figure and i have take my time to understand colours and motives what looks nice on who.
the profits range from 50-100%ing and being a single mum i supplement the profits to keep my children in school and some to restock this way i always have something going for me am also in a sacco where we get bonus which i also use to restock my stuff and have the moneys double hence making more profit
my typical cost would be like usd 500 aand out of it i can make a profit of say USD 300 .

Loan Proposal

I will be adding on my stock some of the funds will go to clothes /shoes/jewelry, My entire budget for the project is usd 400 as I will be supplementing this money with some usd 200 savings from my sacco and ensure my shop is fully stocked again. some of the profits will be used for sending my children to school and supporting my Elderly parents and ensure my clients are happy.
From this investment my returns will be to the tune of USD 1200 which will enable me service my loans and pay for the shop and the girl who tends to it.
