About Me

My name is Lilian Lipeshi aged 35 years old and Zambian by citizen. I started my primary course at Twatasha Basic School and completed successfully.
Later qualified into secondary school or high school which I also completed and obtained my grade 12 certificate.
I hold a Diploma in business management and am a member of Zambia Institute of Chartered Accountants. Currently am working with Trade Kings as Sales Representative, I was engaged in 2019 to date. Am also involved in business to make an extra income for family and children.
Due to the passion I have in entrepreneurship business I have a business which am running also in our community and I sale sorted clothing.

My Business

I have a shop and am involved into the business of clothing. I sale sorted clothing such as men's, ladies, babies and for girls and boys clothing. I sell them daily and weekly because I receive orders on a daily basis. Among the goods that I sell are blankets, bedsheets, dresses of ladies and skirts, men's suits, babies, boys top and bottom track suits, jerseys , jackets and many more when required by the customers. I choose this type of business because it is on demand and highly profitable, now that we in the cold season demand for jerseys, jackets, sweatshirts and the wood is very high. Therefore the profits made I help vulnerable children in orphanage centres in our community and the family members lacking food and school fees. This is because I have had the passion since I was a child. It is my desire to help my fellow human being in need when am better by taking back to the community. The cost of business is almost ZMW 15,000.00 and my weekly profits after sales comes to ZMW 6000 to ZMW 10,250.00
The profits are used to help vulnerable children by paying their school fees, books and school uniforms and also buy food staffs for them.

Project Proposal

With the funds am applying for, I would like to purchase a bale of blankets and ladies jackets, they are selling very fast during this cold season here. As a result I will generate more revenue within a short period of time and grow my business.
