About Me

My name is Brandon malala sande 26 years of age located in bungoma county,bukembe .I am the 1st born of my family of 7 (5)boy an (2)girls in Busia County . I am a Christian,
I went to Biddi primary school for my primary education and jubilee High School for my secondary education before joining Machakos University where I did a Diploma in Marketing/Diploma in Sales & Marketing . I am currently working at my own business in Bungoma county
I am blessed with a beautiful wife and happily married with one kid and another one on the way

My Business

I curently own a gas lpg reffiling shop. In bungoma county ,I do not only nsell in shop, but also i do home delivery door to door i also sell burner,grills,cooker gas lamps and and other cooking equipment i have been working in the lpg business for 5 years.
Generally, this business is profitable regardless of the town you set it up. But the best place to set the business
Cooking gas business is a very profitable business in kenya, in a good month you can get profits between Ksh 90,000 and Ksh 180,000.
What determines cooking gas retail business profits is your ability to retain customers and how you gain new customers.We refill cooking gas at 175KSH per kg, the wholesale price to refill a 6kgs gas cylinder is Ksh 1050, the retail selling price of 6kgs gas cylinder is Ksh 1300 to Ksh 1450.In a day cooking gas business in Kenya can sell 10, 6kg gas cylinders, that means you can make a profit of Ksh 4000 daily.

But keep in mind that this only accounts for 6kgs gas cylinders, so selling a few 13kg gas cylinders Refilling a 13kgs gas cylinder in wholesale costs Ksh 2300, the retail price of 13kgs gas cylinder ranges between Ksh 2600 to Ksh 3000. That means you can makke a profit ranging between Ksh 750- Ksh 950.throughout the day could earn you even more money on top.
It’s very important to know who will distribute the gas. They should be cheap and reliable. Sign up agreement with them to ensure they will be distributing at agreed terms After obtaining all those licences, proceed to set up the business.

This business also need CCTV camera, make sure you’ve installed one because it’s prone to theft.

The total capital required to set up the business, pay rent and for licenses is ksh 100k to Ksh 300k.Profits depend on the number of gas cylinders you will be selling daily.
