I started the business with ksh.15,000 which I started t with 4 sucks of maize at 2,500 I did these at Matayos market .after school I had raised enough money that I was able to get to town and secured a place Busia market .

I started the business so as to create job opportunity after school and to be able support my family. I I buy and sell cereals from Kenya to Uganda sofia . my office located at the border at busia communication house on grown flow the last door.
I sell maize, beans and green grams .The demand is high the fact that Busia is situated in Kenya Uganda border so most of my customers are those who want to cross the border especially those who clear the vehicles and these their people who works here in town.
My business is profitable because I have so many customers so the more I serve the more i earn especially those from schools . The challenge am facing is just lack of capital to expand my business the demand is high than I have. and also to get a bigger store for my goods.
My monthly usage is as follows KES 60,500 transport ,KES 500,000 for the stock and 200, 000 for other expenceses like buying sucks .profit ranges from KES 40,000-45,000 per month.
