About Me

My name is Irene Honu and I'm from Dzodze in the Volta Region of Ghana, West Africa. I am a SHS graduate of Jim Bourton Memorial SHS, Logba. I offered home economics with option in catering. After graduating from School, I told myself that I was going to do business on my own so started cooking rice and selling by the roadside since I offered catering in school. I am a mother of two children. I love cooking and I want to become the best chef in the future with the biggest restaurant in Ghana.

My Business

I am a cook and also runs my own food joint. I started cooking right after school and selling by the roadside. Now I have been able to acquire a land and I want to start a restaurant there. My love for cooking has brought me into this job and I'm ready to go the extra mile just to be the best as cooking is my hobby, my proffession and my passion. I am highly determined to be the best chef with the best restaurants in Ghana.

Loan Proposal

I need the loan to buy more cooking utensils especially bigger ones as the food I'm preparing now jas increased and i habe also added other menus like Jollof, plain rice and Fried Rice. At first I was only selling waakye but I have now started all kinds of dishes as some customers want variety to choose from.

Income Source

I can pay the loan from my sales i make from my food business on daily basis. Now i have increased the menu so its attracting more customers.
