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

The pilot shop is growing in a fast pace than anticipated.First of all i am grateful to Zidisha family for the financial support so far.I have had clients who have connected me to different flying schools and i will soon start supplying pilot shirts and books to them.My next goal now is to raise enough funds to pay my suppliers and have agreed to take the products on partial credit.I need to stock 100 pilot shirts and almost 300 copies of study notes.The other products that also do well are the accessories like the branded mugs which i also plan to add afew items into my stock.Thankfully i operate from home now and do deliveries so any money in my float is all projected to expanding the business.Thank you again for all Zidisha family,together we shall become sucessfull!
