Grow My Hustle

With UnlimiNET anything is possible, businesses flourish and people become successful! In that line of thought, Airtel came up with Grow My Hustle;

Grow My Hustle is an Airtel program which aims at encouraging online entrepreneurship. People tell us what online businesses they have, they apply so that we can help them grow their hustle. Winners will be promoted online by Airtel!

The first round of #GrowMyHustle took place from the 20th April to the 17th May, and from the over 200 people who applied, only 3 lucky businesses were picked and they will be widely promoted online by us!

What has been your inspiration?

Our main inspiration has been the satisfaction our customers and clients get from us. Them posting and praising us for giving them quality for less is fulfilling.


Where did you get your business idea?

I went through campus partly by money from a mtush shop and i used to see my big sister get good money from sale of clothes as a side hustle. Mom still does. I loved helping out.


For how long have you been doing business online?

Officially since January 2015. 2nd to be precise.


Why did you choose social media to promote your business?

First i didn't have money to set up shop. I had to let people know I have something ....i am active online and very social. It was the easiest most affordable platform which covered soonest all steps of the business.


How and why do you think your products matter to people?

First getting quality clothes and accessories nowadays is hard and expensive. Ours are camera and we choose then one by one which means you get quality, unique and good products for less. We also go ahead to wash and iron them which makes them * buy and wear * :)


Do you use Airtel Money as a form of payment on your business?

No we don't. We haven't yet introduced many modes of payment but we are considering them as we grow.


What are your future plans?

We want to be a household name. Delivering quality products for less. We look forward to a day where we'll have a mobile van to take our products all over, we also want to eliminate the 'uniform' mentality taking over fashion industry by advising people to get unique products.. Not just what is on fashion.

For how long have you been doing business online?

I started this business in February This year and since I do not have a Shop yet, Social Media Is my shop since then to date. That’s 4 Months


Why Social Media?

I chose Social Media since almost everyone is on Social media, and Most especially my target market is using Facebook Twitter and Instagram.

So Little Prince & Princess is here to provide Beautiful Wear for your child’s stage by stage, we make it easy for you to shop at the comfort of your home or office and have your choice delivered to you.


Use of Airtel Money.

What has been your inspiration?

Our biggest Inspiration comes from the simple fact that it’s actually possible to make a difference in people’s lives by embracing technology and the limitless opportunities that comes along with the Internet and Social Media.


Where did you get your business idea?

Our idea came about during my day to day hustle of going to the market to buy vegetables and groceries and sometimes buying the produce at the local ‘mama mboga’ groceries. I noticed that it took me lots of time and resources to get to the market to get this produce and on the other hand the local ‘mama mbogas’ charged a hefty price for the same produce.

From this frustration, I figured that I would save people’s time and money by delivering to them the produce right to their doorsteps and all they would simply do is access one of our online platforms i.e. Facebook, Twitter and website to make an order


For how long have you been doing business online?

We have been operating Online for 3 months now and we are astonished by the huge response we have received from the online community, our Facebook page has gained over 42,000 followers in this short period, we never anticipated this huge growth over this small period.


Why did you choose social media to promote your business?

We believe in technology in enhancing our business operations and since the current generation has embraced social media we don’t want to be left behind this phenomenal change that is becoming a norm in everybody’s life.


How and why do you think your products matter to people?

We deal with farm produce and believe that Food is an essential part of everybody’s life. We also work to ensure that people receive their fresh veggies and fruits without having to go through the hustles involved.


Do you use Airtel money as a form of payment on your business?

Currently No because most of our customers pay cash on delivery


What are your future plans?

We hope to set base in most of the counties in Kenya within the next 5 years. It is also our hope that Shamba Fresh will be a household name around Kenya, regionally and globally
