Limited working inventory in terms of motor vehicles to meet the current demand of the clientele.
Thin working capital and investment capital for expansion.
Seasonal challenges especially in the tours and safaris.
Inadequate mentorship to steer the business into maximum profitability.
Actions I’ve taken so far
Outsourcing of some cars at a lower cost to increase margins and meet demand of the market.
Involvement of a Business Development manager to formulate strategies and tools to ease the business operations.
Entered a Business Incubator program for small and medium enterprises to equip staff with the knowledge about how to run the business.
Invested in market opportunities to increase the number of clientele to increase turnover in order to be able to access future financing for the business.
Seeking mentorship programs
My future goals
To be able to provide all round standard transportation solutions for individuals and businesses at the most competitive rates and to expand further into the Sub Saharan region and international market
My motivations to work with a mentor
Mentorship provides a platform for me to be accountable for the business, develop new skills and improve on those that I already have and unlocks a network that we can market our service to.
