I.T is wide. If you are good in programming try mobile apps using cordova.

io i.t…web development iko aje?

more should mean everything. electricals and electronis plus hardware materials come with a good profit

By IT una maanisha?

Rules of business startup
1.start small but think big
2.start a business that YOU can run.

supermarket especially early stages itabidi ukuwe very involved. infact a supermarket is just a General shop that has grown and expanded. Either get familiar with retail management ama jaribu biz ingine.
na I.T imekuwa aje ikakulemea?


i clear used it equipment from banks or companies

Like comps/machines stuffs?

Supermarket ni capital intensive, pia inafaa mtu awechonjo na employees juu they can bleed you dry, pilferage kwa masupermarket hukuwa high sana.


sasa ubaya kwenye natoka nataka kumulti task

Next time you get the contract kindly inbox before you dispose ama uziuze

Boss una capital ya pesa ngapi hapa before uchomwe na supemarket.

Supermarkets will make you money if:

  1. You choose a strategic location
  2. You are situated in highly populated place with

Those two are the most important. But they are also dependent on:

  1. Your capital outlay
  2. Your control systems to deter pilferage and employee theft
  3. How much competition you will face
  4. Your relationship with suppliers. supermarkets hold up a lot of cash in stock, you will have to hold huge amounts in credit most of the time, will suppliers trust you that much?

The good thing with supermarkets is that you hardly have debt on your books unless in terms of salaries, rent and such like.

The ugly side is that other players can easily enter the market and woe unto you if they have deeper pockets.

You will also need close supervision.
