In today's difficult times, I strongly believe it is important than ever to reconnect , strengthen community ties and reignite our sense of togetherness & care for one another.
YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT IS INVALUABLE
As much as I believe in my vision and ability to start and gradually expand my business, I need to get some wind in my sails in terms of the initial budget. This is where this site and its generous visitors come in. For my Movie Shop to be set up by the end of December 2021, I need to cover a lot of ground and related costs.
Everything over the original goal - $ 2,240 means I am one step closer to making this dream come true by December 21st. That day will be a big day for me since I will be turning 26 then. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this!
The funds received will go directly for:
- Licensing, (MCSK,KFCB, Single Business Permit) $ 140.00
- Shop hardware (e.g. computer, printer), $ 1500.00
- Branding , ($ 200.00)
- Rent, ($ 200.00)
- Miscellaneous, ($ 200.00)
Given that a non-negligible portion of the total amount raised has to be spent on Kenyan taxes, M-changa fees, and card processing fees, every penny is valuable and each contribution to the described goal is welcome and much appreciated!
WHO AM I?
My name is Geoffrey and I'm originally from Kisii, a small town nestled at the heart of the thriving Nyanza province, Kenya and I am physically Disabled person but I do believe that won't hinder me from achieving my dreams.
I myself am a 25-year-old Financial advisor born to a family of hard-working Gusii-based agriculturists. In the midst of these difficult times, riddled with declining public health and sudden lockdowns, I have unfortunately lost my job. Prior to these unfortunate circumstances, I have gained 3 years of experience in the Financial industry, which includes both banking, life insurance and running operations in a team I was in charge of.
Even without the damaging effect Covid-19 has had on my career and livelihood, it has always been a dream of mine to start a business of my own. And now that I have been forced to act quicker, I dream even bigger. Aside from wanting to set up my own Movie Shop by the end of December 2021, I believe in giving an opportunity to the less fortunate in society and being a good example to them by making available educative, inspirational content.
