About Me

Thomas Oppong is a hardworking man who hail from Adwumamu in Ashanti Region. I grew up from a poor family so I couldn't complete my Shs education., because of that my uncle helped me to learn a profession in tailoring. Now I owned a shop with three apprentices who are working under me. I am married with a son. My son want to become a doctor and I was good at football in school also.

My Business

I sew all kinds of dresses for my clients who are the people in my community. this to raise money from the busines on daily basis as people troop to my shop for services. I love my work because it's all I got and make sure funds raised from the busines are saved and also reinvest back into the business.

Project Proposal

The loan I am applying for is going to help me buy a new sewing machine to work on customers materials. The old one I am using is very faulty and prevents me from working well. So this loan would really help me alot and I would me grateful to get this assistance. Thank you
