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

I need this loan to buy hair dryer , I am using two to serve my customers but one is faulty and have gone beyond repairs, this keeps my customers waiting because only on is serving them. Getting a new dryer in addition to the I have would help me serve more customers and generate more profit enough to pay the loan.

Income Source

I have set standards and Covid 19 protocols , so accessing service from my saloon feel safe and by so doing my clients feel happy to access my services. I would pay the loan from my daily sales profit I make out services. Thank you
