My Business

My business is shopkeeping.I have been operating the shop for four years now.It started at a low tune as I had no enough capital.Later after joining Marriango self help group expanded my kiosk to a big retail shop My business provides the selling of goods such as:wheatmeal,cartons of soaps,sugar,medicine,handkerchiefs,biscuits,sweets etc Also buy house utensils,basins,pencils,pens,books,rubbers,school uniforms etc.There is high demand for these goods in that people need to buy their items at a fare price and in large large quantity such that they don't have to move from one place to another to search for the same items.My customers prefer to my business in that Im a faithfull shopkeeper and that Im good at accounting hence this have made me attract and retain them.The business is profitable in that I make a bigger sale for bigger profit in a short given time.The risks my business faces are lack of transport and untestable prices exchange.My monthly income is ksh:34000 and my monthly expenditure is ksh:24000.My monthly profit is ksh:10000 of which I can repay my loan given by Zidisha very comfortably.
