About Me

I am a married lady 36 years of age. I have a 5year old girl and a 2year old baby boy. I am a first born of 3 other siblings who look up to me for guidance in life.

My Business

I am currently employed in the banking industry where I've been in the past 9years and 9months. My employer pays me a monthly salary. I have developed an interest in business which I've realized helps ends meet by having an extra coin aside from the monthly salary.

With the last proposal, I bought a few lady inner-wears in wholesale and sold to colleagues and friends at a small profit. I did this for a year and it was manageable up until COVID-19 struck and I had had a newborn.. It became tough. Later on I ventured into buying fruits and selling to neighbors in our estate. I still try to do this though iregularly.

Project Proposal

I plan to buy tomatoes in bulk cheaper than the retail price near my area and sell to my neighbors once a week. This will be dependent on the uptake by my neighbors but it sounds promising as i had tried this sometime back but with fruits.
Once this goes well, i can incorporate another vegetable like onions. Onions and tomatoes are two items that almost every household needs or consumes.
