Race against time.
- 03 Nov 2017
"This area is very
famous for the sale of college textbooks and notebooks. For more than two
decades, my cousins were in this trade and I learned business by observing
I set up my stall about eight years back. Here, I stock all kinds of notebooks and sell at wholesale rates. People from out of town also visit regularly and buy from me. I stay away from big brands as they don’t sell in this part of town. My stall is open every day and friends pitch in when I am sick or take off.
Business is okay and I make enough to support my father and sister...but no big savings to pull off a wedding in the house. And I have two marriages to plan for, in the next few years...my sister’s first, and then mine. For someone like me in the mid-30s, it's a race against time?"
