Pauline Uhuru is a young lady who has been in the boutique business for the last one year. Everything she knows about business she has learned from her own boutique as the days of being a young person in business have come and gone. At the beginning she stocked clothes for both men and women as well as children. She however learned that the men’s wear wasn’t as fast moving as the women and children’s clothes. Men unlike women, are not impulse buyers . She optimizes on the impulse buying nature of her female clientele and displays all the best stock outside her shop to attract them to the shop. The mother of two school going children is eager to bring home as much as her husband does so that they can give their children the best life they can.
The festive season is here with us and as is the norm and tradition, new clothes are on very high demand. Since time immemorial families from across the economic classes have made it a tradition to at least please the children at Christmas and new year with new beautiful clothes. Even parents who haven’t added to their children’s wardrobe all year will do everything under the sun to have their children look nice. Well this phenomenon has not been reserved to children alone as the said parents also seek to reward themselves to treats that will make them look great. It is for this reason that many boutiques are stocking the latest trends and fashion and Pauline is doing just that.
She is seeking $300 from Moto Hope Micro Lending to purchase more stock from Nairobi’s Eastleigh wholesalers where she travels herself to be able to pick just what her customers will love. With the funds, she will be able to meet all of the demand especially of the last minute shoppers that most of her customers are.
