On weekends lot of people come to barber their hair. I can boldly say Saturdays are my favorite because lots of costumers find time to come to barber hair. I have three guys who assist in the shop. They are not permanent workers because i cannot paid them. They mainly friends who will love to help any day this make saving costumer very fast. Although it in my plans to expand and create employment for other young guys who have the passion like me to earn their living.
The shop has four shaving machines used for barbering.
I used $400.00 in setting up the barbering shop and on average, i make $50.00 per week.
I used part of my income to buy consumables such tissue paper, sterilizer, repair of the barbering machine.
Part of my profit is used for savings to expand the shop in the near future.
