About Me

I am 23 years old amd an undergraduate student at Kisii University College where i will graduate next year 2014. I am from a Village called Tendwet Village and we live with my loving parents. I am a second born of 5 children in our family. My elder brother graduated last year and he is still looking for a job. My other young siblings are in Secondary school and one boy is in primary school at local primary school. Last year December i started a business project where i opened a cafe in home village. The proceeds from this cafe has been suporting me alot especially in meeting my college fees and also as a pocket money. The profit is consistently growing over time. I hope to expand and open a restaurant in future.

My Business

It is 8 months since i started a profitable business at nearby trading centre. I am operating cafeteria where i serve various delicious food to my customers. I realized this idea when i saw many customers dont have a place to have a meal or to take coffee. I tape this opportunity and take a chance in venturing in this profitable business. I have employed 2 employees to help me in preparing meals and serving customers in rthe cafeteria. I prepare chapatis, coffee, mandazi, cofee and roast and fried meat among other delicious meals. I make a profit of 1500 per day ,and upto 2000 when the customers are many. This i deductksh600 to pay workers whereby each take ksh300 per day as a daily labour wage. This has realy helped me alot and the profit i get from this cafeteria i save for future expansion. I have been payng school fees and getting pocket money from this business. I am focusing to opening another branch in the nearby town in near future. If i get support from anybody willing to support i will boost this business to its expected level. I want in the next one year time i am hoping to open a restaurant.

My business was affected but the pandemic and election period but at the moment things have normalize.
