Business: Fish Eatery
Years in Operation: 2 Years
Amount needed: $50
There are only a handful of Fish eateries in the whole of Molo town, mostly by virtue of not being a lakeside town and inhabitants having traditional staple foods. Fish eating is however gaining momentum and this gap saw Anne open a fish eatery with a starting capital of $100 at the center of Molo market. She has sold fresh and fried fish for the last two years and is well known for her tasty fried fish and ugali. Her little joint is a buzz of activity during lunch hours as customers flock to dine on her delicacy. Her peak days are the two designated market days: Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Besides the happy customers who pop in for lunch, Anne also sells both fresh and fried fish to homes within Molo town, other market traders and business persons, as well as people who frequent the market. She maintains high standards of hygiene and never compromises on the quality of the fish she sells. She delivers on time and is very friendly and eager to please her customers.
She is seeking $50 from MHML to be able to increase her cooking oil stock. The fluctuating price of this major ingredient has lately stressed her operations by increasing the cost of doing business time and again thereby lowering her earnings. She also wants to increase her fish stock and buy more fish from Nakuru town in order to meet the gradually increasing demand from her old and new customers.
It is the proceeds from her business that enable her to pay for the school fees of her two siblings in college and high school as well as cater for her own needs and she is out to make sure it continues to stand firm.
