My Business

My business involves selling kitenge clothes and materials; I started on April 2013. I buy the clothes at ninas, and then when I attracted a lot more customers I started buying my clothes/materials from far markets like Eastleigh in Nairobi, I would like to expand and get clothes from Ghana,dubai where I get better clothes to attract more customers. I love my business because it has no stress, when I buy the clothes in the Market I take a pic of them then I sell them in social media like facebook on soko kuu and many other sokos and websites tu, since I do house to house selling or at markets in different market days around Nairobi County. This business is what sustains my family and I manage to educate myself and feed my child monthly profits is Sh20000.. but with more stock i can manage to make twice the profits
