It is such a delight watching Daniel go about his business at the very busy restaurant as lunch hour kicks in. The restaurant is filled to the brim and where it would be easy to expect utter chaos, the amazingly wide range of customers are placing their orders with such calm the organization in the place is on another level. Daniel is busy at the counter where through a window that connects to the kitchen he announces the orders to his staff. The waiters are quick on their feet making sure no customer waits longer than they have to.
Daniel is a very happy man. He has no regrets going into business when he did. At the moment, he has created employment for six people. A year ago he had ten employees four at another establishment that he shut down to expand the current restaurant. The fact that through his business six families are able to meet their needs is his daily motivation. Besides this, the business has enabled him to open a retail shop for his wife in Molo’s Posta area. Earnings from their businesses allow them to provide for their children’s basic needs and also keep them in school. Besides the business, Daniel is also a small holder farmer growing vegetables and potatoes for his family’s consumption.
Daniel is very dedicated to his restaurant. He is focused on scaling and the gradual growth so far is the source of his optimism. His is the only one in the area that opens up early enough to serve breakfast at the morning rush hour as people get into town for work and engage in different businesses. He serves all the meals of the day and closes late in the night. This way he is able to maximize sales. In addition, he also sells packed lunches which his staff deliver to business people at their shops and businesses. His delicious meals are relatively cheap and he sells a wide variety which keeps the customers coming. He is seeking $200 fro Moto Hope Micro Lending to purchase more stock of dry foods and cereals to enable his restaurant to continue meeting its demand.
