Business has been on the decline since last year. Right now people are hanging by the threads. Another few months and people will get laid off in droves. The only people making some money are in the food business.
Even the food business is still feeling the pinch especially luxurious food huko mashinani. Remember meat to some is luxury

Things are thick.

Tenders aren't being paid and other businesses are very slow because of fear. Customers aren't buying :( thank God I own the shop where I trade, if that wasn't the case I would have had to close down.

Im of the opinion that many businesses will close shop this year. 6 months in such a toxic environment will kill many small businesses.

Biashara sio yangu,i however ran it the way i'd want it ran ingekua yangu but generally speaking,business was really good for us starting around last year Dec coz many callenders were being printed. The more campaigns zilishika the more stationary i'd sell since kuna posters mingi sana that were being printed. On my side hustles za printing nazo zilikua frequent. I'd print & send the finished products,usually posters & fliers to customers outside nairobi as i go on perfoming duties za ajira yangu. Then there came the elections. All came to a stand still,then worse when results were anounced,we thought things would slowly get back to normal then kukawa na story ya petition.. then demonstrations are now an issue in themselves coz customers wakipiga simu to place an order i have to watch the streets first before delivering.

I've been hearing printing business being bad this elections because people were doing it in China instead for cheaper. Is that true?

Wueeh...
Projects which were set to start in September have been halted.

Previous payments still partly paid.

Looking for new business with the current environment is a joke and a waste of money if you are used to wining and dining potential clients.

Frankly speaking its like I am on leave at the moment....unpaid leave at that :mad::mad:
