My Business

My business is a juice bar.. That deals with whole fruits and vegetables.. Juices and smoothies.. It is located in Nairobi cbd.. Where we do a lot of deliveries. I started my business in 2018.. It always been my passion to run my own business but this was due to the high unemployment rate in Kenya.. So the only way i could take care of myself and family was through the business.. I have had some good times with the business has enabled me to pay for my school and those of my siblings.. Im looking forward to continuing with my business. So that i can continue supporting myself and family
