A day in the life of....A second-hand clothes dealer

“I deal in second hand clothes which I import from Nairobi,” Robert Kalema says of his occupation. I wake up at 8:30a.m and have a shower. Then I have my breakfast. By 9a.m I am already in town from Remera. I go by taxi, costing me Rwf 150.

By 9a.m I am already in town from Remera. I go by taxi, costing me Rwf 150.

I start by checking my mails to see if my suppliers have managed to send my orders. When I confirm the time and quantity to be supplied, I then start contacting my customers.

This helps me to sell off the products when they reach.
At around 12p.m is when I have lunch.

I normally rest a bit at 1p.m.

At 2p.m I continue with my work. I also check on what my customers are lacking, so that I can organise an appropriate order.

By 5p.m I stop work and meet my family at home. I usually have my evening tea at 7p.m.

I also take some time reading the Newspapers. I bathe then have supper at 9p.m. I do not go to bed immediately. I spend an hour chatting with my family.

The latest I go to bed is 11p.m.
