Finally. Finally we were able to open the shop at PAF Center.
It took a while to sort things out and get our order done. But now the goods and items were all delivered.
Our PAF member Venuli, the shop manager, was doing a very good job checking the lists and bringing things in order.
You wonder what kind of goods we will be selling? Well…here you go:
- Drinks (only sodas and no alcohol)
- soap, washing paste
- dry cells
- radio batteries
- exercise books
- salt, sugar
- tea leaves matches
- Cooking oil
Of course we will add more items once the initial investment has been covered. We plan to also sell stationary goods such as pens, pencils, rubbers and rulers.
Maybe even eggs and fresh bread and cake, made in the village.
Another idea is to offer snacks and meals, perpares in our community kitchen. This could work well for events, lets say when our PAF Warriors have a soccer match..
And we also have good news already. After just 20min of the shop being open we already sold items for 27 Kwacha (roughly 2.50 USD). That doesn’t sound like much. But we are happy and expect good revenues. We are sure the shop will attract even more people now. The next shop is several km away…
Thanks again to all our donors and membera for supporting us. Without you guys we would not be able to invest in projects like that. 🙂
And of course that money made will be used for other PAF projects.
