About Me

My name is Onesmus Namoobe and am 27year old Zambian citizen. I live in Lusaka the main capital city of Zambia. Am located in Emmasdale town I where I reside with my wife and children. Am involved in entrepreneur ship business. Right now am looking for funds to help me to reinvest in my retail shop. Have been hard working and I want to grow and expand my business so that I can improve the living standard of the family and help the vulnerable in our family and help them to pay school fees. Growing up in a humble family with hiccups especially paying school fees and not having three meal per day. Life has been full of struggles hence I want to break barrier by working extra hard to better my life and that of the family.

My Business

Am involved in selling of grocery goods, I own a wholesale and a retail shop in our community. I sale a variety of different grocery good and these are consumable daily. These goods I stock up in my shops sale very fast and I generate good income very day. Lately due to economic challenges my business is lacking financial boost to stock up more grocery goods which are on demand. I need at least ZMW 15,000.00 to buy the following grocery goods: These are;

1. Cooking oil{ 5l, 2.5l, 750mls}
2. 90kg of Rice and macaroni
3. Sugar and tissue
4. Powdered washing soap
5. Cuddles for lighting
6. Bathing soap
7. peanut butter and mayonnaise and more goods
Basically, I really need raise funds to stock these goods so that my shops can fully stocked for customers to buy goods of their choice and make more daily income or sales.

Project Proposal

Am really requesting for financial assistance from you my backers, I want to buy grocery stock which have ran out in my shop. For the one month have had challenges in terms of recapitalization due to financial constraints. Most of the grocery items are out of stock and sale very fast. Demand is increasing daily hence I need to stock up so I can meet the demands of customers. Thank you so much in advance.
