Selling food products online

Salty egg is traditional food from my home land, it has unique tastes that can not be made by other. I offered the egg only to buyer in the same town, because to send the package with safe is challenging. Now i confident to offer it in my online shop, and to send it to some towns around (Jabodetabek), since i experienced the safer trick of the packaging. I hope Zidisha lenders can support my shop, my online job. I want to support our family's financial without leaving my kids to stay at the offline shop or to work for other (as employee).

At low seasons when customers’ demands are not high, I sale scratch cards worth 100 dollars with an interest of 8% from each item sold. On average in a week I earn 56 dollars and in 4weeks 224 dollars. During high business season when customers’ demands are high, the sales normally increase to around 40% of the average sales. The business has an operating capital amount of 500 dollars. I am targeting to increase my sales stock so as to cope up with the increasing demand which will also increase my daily average earning and capital amount by 50%.
I’m in the process of transforming my part-time airtime scratch cards sales into a full time Small scale business. This small scale business will have a full time attendant and it will also include an affordable cyber café for disadvantages youth around the estate. The proceeds will be reinvested in the Small scale business to keep it growing and assisting more vulnerable and talented youths.
