What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

Financial planning, Taxation, Pricing strategies, auditing, accounting

Actions I’ve taken so far

I enrolled on an online master's class for Keys to growing your business finances( 90 minutes session), enrolled on Google Digital Skills for Africa Courses . Currently pursuing Fundamentals of digital marketing .

My future goals

To grow my business and become a force to recon with within the country and beyond. Open branches of my business around all Universities and colleges in the country and be known as the go to laundry services provider in the region.

My motivations to work with a mentor

I had a cosmetics business last year but I had to close shop. I have learnt many lessons and I want to pick up my pieces and move forward doing the right things the first time. With guidance from a mentor I improve my chances of success in a business I have great passion for as well as make wealth while at it.


About my venture

Rebbie's Laundromat

My business is a Laundromat located in a growing urban town starting up with one washing machine and one dryer. My target markets are mainly students and single individuals who have a busy schedule and little time to put into cleaning their clothes. I intend to use the 'all you can fit in a bag" pricing method as opposed to pricing per item , although this might apply for some items e.g. the heavy/ bulky duvets. I intend to have exceptional customer service, picking and dropping of clothes, free ironing for new customers to attract and retain customers. My main competitors include laundry and dry cleaners, mobile cleaning ladies( mama fua), live in house helps and outsourcing cleaning services who pick and drop clothes.

Countries of operation: Kenya
