My name is Rosemary Gichuki. I live in Nairobi Kenya. I am employed as a Manager in a company where we process and sell bottle drinking water.
I am a single mum of two young adults who have left the nest. It wasn't easy bringing them up, and I tried all kind of businesses to make ends meet. So they have their own lives now and I would encourage all the single mums and dads here never to give up. Always give your best. I used to hawk clothes and beauty products in between jobs.
Two years ago, I was running a boutique for second hand clothes. Covid came and I was forced to close the shop because business was very low and I couldn't afford to continue paying the rent and the shop attendant. My stock is still in the house and I want to re-open the same now as somehow business have started coming up. I was buying bales of women and children clothes and selling on retail.
The beauty with women and children clothes is that people do frequent impromptu buying compared to men's clothes.
My passion is farming. In a few years I want to farm fulltime for the local and international markets. I believe there is good returns when done well.
Currently I am employed and at the same time I make snacks at home and sell to my friends and colleagues. I am also called upon to cook for guests in my fiends or relatives homes when hey have a function.
I will buy a bale of ladies trench coats as this is the rainy season. It will compliment what I have in stock.
Pay It Forward
