I am working at a small graphics design business as an intern, I earn 1.35 USD per day and of which 0.54 is taken off for transport each day. I rest on the Saturday Sabbath, for Sundays when I begin work, I have no customers, this means I go into debt, which consumes my 1.35 USD minus the transport, so I have nothing to eat left. I am not here to receive pity; I want away of getting a foundation job, and my idea is to sweep and mop people's shops before they open. With that in mind I will charge 0.54 USD per service. The problem I need to solve is how I reach those prospects? How do I sell my service? Please help me solve it. I would appreciate a book more and more.
I thank Mr. MJ for his wisdom through his books and YouTube channel, I wish more people in Uganda get this knowledge than being political all the time. I also request that if he reads this, may he continue enlightening more and more people.. I want to be the change, I want. I hate bosses who don't care about the lives of others, and pay less.

Welcome, Segawa.
There are quite a few of us from Uganda; myself, @Isaac Odongo . You are lucky to have come across MJ's books and this forum quite early in life.Are you getting that little money because you are an intern? What are your prospects after finishing your course?

About approaching prospects, you will do well to go through @piano and @Subsonic's window-washing threads.

Good luck to you, i hope you will get out of this sicuation.
About prospects - you can just shop up at the door, and propose directly - i can clean your shop before the openings for 0.54. If you can't get the owner or the manager that can make a decision - you can try to negotiate with worker who opens the shift.
Just go through a bunch of shops and propose, if the say "no" - ask why. And then change what you offer according to this. Maybe nobody needs cleaning before shift, but needs garbage disposal, for example.
You go from there. That's what i would've done.
