Business plan 
Zam has a cosmetics shop that sells make up, hair chemicals and hair extensions. Zam says that since her capital was small, she decided to incorporate shoes and clothes for children and ladies as they are always on demand and they don’t cost much such that she could keep her business from collapsing. Zam buys these items from Mukono and Kampala at a whole sale price and transports them to Busoke. Zam says she would like to buy in bulk since the demand has increased as Christmas season is knocking so that she saves on transport costs and increase on her profits in order to expand her business.
