About Me

Hello.Im an aviation enthusiast and currently a student pilot.I have always loved to do business also as part time venture whenever possible.I order aviation accessories such as aircraft models for decor ,brand coffee mugs with aviation touch,clothings branded with aviation pictures and many more,i resale them with a profit.Currently i deal with small scale and i market the commodities amongst a few people but i have anticipated a tremendous growth in demand from many other people in the airport and online marketing in jiji.co.ke, through friendship referrals but i lack the capital to inject into the business and make it the dream business i think of.I stock commodities at home and deliver my orders within Nairobi ,i also send as packages to other parts of the country.I would like to grow and open a shop in Nairobi.In the future i would like to own a branding machine which will make items readily available on demand instead of using a third party which causes delays and reduction in net profits.I also intend to grow my business and make it a big pilot shop where we sell not only do small scale sales but also do wholesale supply of items such as;small decor items aviation attire ,navigation aid gadgets ,maps and aviation study materials.I really appreciate each and everyone's support and commit to support other entrepreneurs to grow too.Be blessed!

My Business

My pilot shop business sells aviation-related products and services to pilots and aviation enthusiasts. These products include aviation headsets, navigation tools, and flight bags, among others.

To generate profits, i use a combination of different strategies. One way is that i offer a variety of products at competitive prices, attracting a large customer base. Another way is providing excellent customer service, building loyalty and repeat business. Additionally, i offer services such as pilot training related consultations and aircraft rental connections for recreational purposes, generating revenue through those channels as well.

Overall, the key to generating profits in my pilot shop business is to offer a diverse range of high-quality products and services, and to provide exceptional customer service. My first capital was from my savings.

Project Proposal

I have managed to get a stable vlient base not to mention of its tremendous growth,i have now realized tge specific commodities that are in high demand and hence i stock them while i sell other items on order.The supplier channel has also improved and now its cheaper to order any quantity of goods without the previous restrctions of minimum wholesale quantity.I now intend to stock more aircraft models,aircrew uniforms ,branded mugs and our aviation branded distilled water.That is all for now but my future projection is getting a scotter for deliveries and a printing machine for embroidery on customers shirts or jackets who want the rating any relevant qualification fitted on their clothes.Thanks so much Zidisha family for making small business dreams affordable and a reality. Let us all grow together in love!
