Describe Local Competition

In Kizungu there are no organized tea centers. There is only roadside tea centers which serve food in open without proper hygiene and on top of that with their food exposed to sun, wind, dust and rains. 

Why do you think this project will make money?

 Kizungu is both a residential and commercial place with very many people who will be our customers.

There is 2 tertiary institutions namely: Rwenzori college of commerce and Liberty college, they need clean food, there is also 5 primary schools with over 3000 children and 2 secondary schools who will on daily basis need chapattis or Mandazi from a clean centre, we predict that these will give us business. Students often eat and pack food as they go to school.

What did you learn from the Critical Thinking Workshop - that is valuable for your project’s success?

Women to decide for them on the business they can manage and not let men/husbands to decide for them certain businesses. W e have chosen this business as women and not directed by men.

Avoid superstitions e.g seeking for riches from traditional doctors, wasting a lot of time praying to get money; We shall mind about working all days in our restaurant business and we shall properly plan the profits.

We shall get rid of trick stars/abafere that can steal our money and put down our business. 

What did you learn from the Entrepreneur’s Workshop - that is valuable for your project’s success? 

Need to have skills to do business well; we are going to get training in preparing the best tea,chapatti and Mandazi etc.

Need to keep records for the business. This will help to know the losses or profits of the business and also know what is needed to better the business.

We learned that our business will work if we use our education, our creativity, our mathematical skills, and our organizational skills. In this way we can help ourselves.

We will avoid People who try to sell us “magic”.
