I have finally managed to contact my man in Kisii. He contacted me through Skype, as usual, from the usual cyber café, which should be, by now, mine!
But it wasn't. At the last minute, the seller doubled the price of the business, and the landlord increased the monthly rent by 2,000/- a month.
My man in Kisii refused to pay the extras after having had an agreement from the seller's agent for the original prices.
He went on the offensive and found new premises with an asking rent actually less than the original price. He bought six PCs with a higher specification, and is in the process of acquiring the necessary furniture.
All we need now to open a fully functioning cyber café is:
- a hub
- a modem
- CAT5 cabling
and once open, to be able to offer the full range of services:
- a scanner
- a printer
- a land line and fax machine
Unfortunately, we have run out of money!
So, from last week's fully functioning ready-to-run business, I now have an almost ready, non-functional business, and, until/unless my sales on eBay come to fruition, no way of opening!
