Years in Operation: 5 Years
Amount Needed: $675
Conrad is a business man in Kapsara village, Kitale town. He owns a series of businesses which include Butchery, Shop and a restaurant. The business is located along a major road connecting two villages. His business premises are built on his farm hence he does not pay rent. Conrad has been in the business for 5 years now; he started with the butchery which later he saw the need to open a restaurant since there was no restaurant within that area. With the proceeds from the butchery and restaurant, Conrad was able to open a small shop in order to supplement income from the other businesses. To achieve all this, he has been working with the wife and they have been able to employ three other employees to help them in the business.
Since Conrad has a big farm, he intends to utilize the farm in order to grow crops and rear animals for his restaurant and butchery business respectively. This will greatly reduce his operating cost as he will be able to get supplies at a much lower cost compared to buying from other sources. He is therefore seeking $675 in order to actualize his dream. In future, he intends to grow crops in large scale and supply to the readily available market in Kitale town.
