Frank Kiboron is a young, vibrant, yet calm man of admirable focus and thirst for growth and success. In Molo 220 area where his shop is located, there is none other like it. This is an interesting aspect for there is a considerable market for the services he provides seeing as there are learning institutions, a very busy market,and many residential homes and buildings as well as businesses that demand the services he professionally offers.
His shop; “Imela Enterprises” offers among others: Online government services Processing(Kenya Revenue Authority Pin, Certificate of good conduct and credit reference bureau reports and certificate and Licenses renewal),Type setting, Binding, Photocopying, Scanning, Printing and Mailing.
He is very open to feedback and has made the services he provides flexible enough to meet all new needs and demands of his customers. For instance he also sells eggs on wholesale to other small scale traders as well as light refreshments. He also operates a busy mobile money transfer agency (MPESA) within this premise. He has provided convenience for them for they can get so many services under one roof, faster and at very affordable rates. His wife a waitress at a local eatery in Molo town also helps to run the shop once in a while.
Frank is seeking $180 to be able to purchase Binding and Laminating machines. He currently hires them from his friends at additional costs which raises his costs of doing business, reduces his profit earnings and sometimes makes him lose customers when he can not gain access to the said machines. Owning them will assure him independence and the full satisfaction of his customers.
Additionally, he also wants to stock mobile phone accessories as well as other small electronic equipment whose availability customers have time and again inquired about. The successful attainment of this target will ensure higher profits and expansion of his venture to continue adequately serving both old and new customers.
