About Me

My name is Derrick Kofi Kwashie, I am a Ghanaian who comes from Nkwanta in the Oti Region of Ghana. I am the 5th born amongst 7 children. Growing up, i realized that I always loved crafts so i went to pursue carpentry at Have Technical Institute and after completing i also went to do apprenticeship for a year to polish up with my talent and passion. Im now a professional carpenter who employed 3 people.

My Business

I am a professional carpenter who has my own shop and company named "Derrick Furniture Works" and I have employed 3 people. I make all kinds of furniture products such as sofa chairs, beds, wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, doors, window frames, roofing and more. It's my dream to have the biggest furniture shop producing quality and durable furniture at an affordable price for the average person.

Loan Proposal

I need the loan to buy Woods and Materials for my furniture work. A customer wants a wardrobe soni need the loan to enable me buy the wood and make the wardrobe for him on Time.

Income Source

I will use the money i make from my furniture business to pay for the loan. No worries about Covid-19 that much in my country (Ghana) because the infection rate is very low and the recovery is higher so we somehow face less risks.
