I have a huge vision of establishing my own company in the future,I want to be an employer and give job to people,I just want to help the less privileged in the society if I have the means.I am a friendly guy who loves to meet new people always.

My Business

I am in to African made shirts,and supply these shirts to some people who really love these African shirts.I started this business in the year 2016 when I had no job after school.I saved some money from my national service allowance and started the business.I had a female friend who make these shirts,I then go and buy them and sell them to others and make some profit out of it.I started the business with Ghs1342.00 that is $ 244.00 but now I have about $1000.00 as capital in the business.In believe I can make it big if a get some financial assistant. Thank you.
