My Business

I am an entrepreneur and I am operating transport business by motorcycle commonly known as bodaboda,after buying my motorcycle with the savings from my previous job,I joined the world of business cycle.
I immediately printed business cards bearing my names,where to be found and the telephone number.This method made me to be popular to so many people around this place and the visitors who came,to visit their friends and family members who reside at this place.
I went further to offer private transportation to my customers such as taking their children to school and picking them in the evening after school time.
This business is so convenient especially here in Ol-kalao.The demand for motorcycle transportation is so high as people around here dwell so much in farming and small businesses, and by this they use motorcycle to deliver their farm produce to the market place at convenient timeline,as compaired to the Nissans,Taxis and Minibuses.
The motorcycle is a bit cheaper as the prices are lower .My customers prefer me/my business so much because I do transport them with a lot of cautious so that we arrive safely and win their confidence through out our journey.I pimped up my motorcycle by installing a radio system to entertain my customers during our ride to their destination.
This business is so profitable because the revenue/money I make on average is Ksh.3000 per day,which translates to Ksh 21000 per month,out of this money I pay for House rent Ksh 4000 Water & Electricity Ksh 4100,Security &Garbage collection Ksh 970 on which after all deductions am left with Ksh 11930 as my profit .
For the loan that Zidisha Team is going to offer to my business and me i am going to Top-up to my savings and buy another motorcycle and employ a young man to operate it, along with me and enable him earn a living and also increase my income to be able to give my family a little decent life and also I will increase my savings so that in the near future with Zidisha on board I will be able to buy more motorcycle and create employment among our youths so that they become financially stable,it is my humble request that my application will be considered,Thank you all.
