l started the electrical shop in 1997 after getting out of employment.The business is very profitable and l do get my stock from the wholesalers in Nairobi and sell at a profit margin of 30%. mostly l stock the china product as they are cheap and easily affordable to the customers.Although there is a lot of competition from other traders l make sure that my prices are competitive and my technical knowledge in this field serves as added advantage to my business.l make an average of ks 15,000 as profit after deducting the business expenses.if advanced with the loan l will add more stock to the business hence increasing the sales.
Dear all, l take this opportunity to salute you all and my sincere hope that all is well with you.l am doing great here in Kenya and l thank the entire Zidisha platform for giving me yet another opportunity to raise a loan to enable me pay school fees for my daughter who is still in university in third year. l will use the whole loan amount to pay the school fees. it is my sincere hope that this time l will be lucky enough and l am appealing to all my lenders to kindly assist me to make my daughters dream come true.
