Description
During covid period I lost my job, and since then I ventured into business, I immediately thought of having a grocery store since the demand for food was very high this time. Having established where the business would do well I also decided to sell fresh vegetables direct from the farm to avoid unnecessary cost in the market. It did so well and I upgraded and added cereals to the store.

Description
We all like to nibble on something in between main meals or just before bedtime to keep away hunger or just to satisfy our desire for food. That is why I came up with the idea of setting up "CORNCUITS" a form of snack made from a mixture of wheat and maize flour alongside others essential ingredients. Having understood the eating culture of Kenyan population, snacks industry has a wider market field especially to the middle and low income earners who happen to form a larger part of the Kenyan population. These people will always want to take some snacks while going about their jua kali business, in their office premises, while travelling to and fro their work places. Students and pupils also from our learning institutions country wide adds to the readily available market share. The uniqueness of this product gives it a competitive advantage against other snacks already in the market. Its pricing also has been taken into consideration to make it very affordable to the lowest income earner.

Description
Africa is a hungry continent and you can never go wrong if you invest in food business. Everyone needs to eat and the escalating rate of rural to urban migration means more new mouths to feed every day. That is why the idea of starting a cereal shop is a good one. This is one of those businesses that you can start with as little as Ksh100,000 ($1000) and scale up to Ksh5,000,000 in a year if you play your cards right Plan On What to Stock You don’t have to be a farmer to get your stock of cereals. There are many wholesalers who can supply you with your initial stock at a reasonable price (in Nairobi wholesalers are mainly found in Nyamakima area). Alternatively, you can plan for a trip to the rural areas so that you can negotiate for even cheaper prices. For instance, you can get cheaper rice from places like Mwea and Kagio or cheaper maize from Chwele in Western Kenya. Some of the fast moving products out of a cereal shop include: Beans: Nyayo, Rosecoco, Yellow beans, Mwitemania, Butter Beans, Gituru and Gachuma varieties. Porridge Flour: Baridi, Wimbi, Mawele, Mtama, Ndimu. Green Grams: Ordinary, Nylon, Makueni, Lentils. Nuts: Njugu Mawe, Groundnuts. Rice: Pure Mwea, Thailand, Pakistan, Sindano, Fivestar, Basmati, Brown Mwea.
