About Me

I am Vivian Amoah a hardworking lady of 28 years and a Hairdresser. I am married with two children. I come from Manso in Ghana with a very rich culture. I struggled when growing up because I come from a broken home where my father rejected me as his biological daughter when I was born. Due to that i was raised my a single mother who did find it difficult to provide a two daily meal a day. I finish secondary school through the help of some family members and because of financial instability I have to learn trade and later a vocation in hairdressing.
I got myself married but my husband but he lost his job due to Covid 19 and so the burden lies upon me to cater for the family.
My vocation as a hairdresser is helping to cater for the family and also teach the youth apprentice who are willing to learn and develop a profession in hairdressing.

I joined Zidisha with the hope of expanding my business and to cater the family and sick mother and also help the community as a whole.

I am really grateful to Zidisha and any lender who is investing a penny into the expansion of my business. I say God bless you. Thank you.

My Business

I own a dressing saloon located at New Tafo near Christ Apostolic Church in kumasi. The business is well established with apprentice. Now I want to expand it and create more branches which will also help and teach more youth who by not their fault suffering to make a vocation in hairdressing as a profession. this will help eradicate poverty among the youth.

At my saloon we give all kind of hair treatments to clients at the best cost, due to that I have gain respect among the community and have alot of customers who patronize our services.

Loan Proposal

Now with Zidisha I am really seeing improvement with my saloon work. I am now opening another branch of my saloon at Santasi in kumasi. This branch will serve the people in that community who are interested in learning hairdressing as a profession. I am going to buy a container and furnished with the required equipment which would be use to service hair styles, pedicure, and other services to my clients. With this my revenue and profit would increase as we are approaching Christmas.

Income Source

I would pay this loan from the daily sales I make from my service. My business of good standing and I would pay before the due time.
