Total balaa...

Its been so long since my last post. So much has happened since then...

First, I got a job. I'm now in marketing though my pals in the village would prefer to call me a broker (local definition of 'broker': A person who finds people willing to sell any item and then finds buyers for the same items... for a commission, preferably from both parties!). They however think Im crazy for taking up such an occupation believing that by venturing into this 'career', one automatically becomes a cheat, conman, thief... the description is endless! This is the only business that I could start with zero capital... all I need is to know the right people and to have special persuation abilities. The havest was poor, so poor that as at this date, my pockets are empty, and so is my bank account. I'm now a week old in this business and already, there are several exiting prospects. To set the ball rolling though, I will sell one of my two cows to the highest bidder. The cow is worth about KShs. 15,000.00 but I will try to get at least KShs. 20,000 from some farmer. You might call me dishonest but the buyer will be happy with the bargain- its a good cow, with lots of potential if properly fed (not that I was starving it). I have also been shopping around for a suit and was supprised at how expensive these things are!
Watch this space for what happened later...
