About Me

My Name is Gideon Gyamfi, I come from Nobewam where I reside in Ashanti Region. I am married with three children. I completed Shs but couldn't continue because my father died at an early stage when i was twelve years of age. with all the family burden on my mother i decided to work hard to support my mother to look after my younger siblings. My left us with a cocoa farm which I took over as the eldest son. I'm also into livestock business where I rear pigs, sheep's, coats, hen's forsale. I choose to invest in livestock because growing up my father trained me well in farming, livestock and rice farm which generated alot of income to support the family. My elder son wants to be a policeman, the second too a nurse and the third a businessman, so I working hard to help them achieve their various dreams as my education was cut short due to money. At my shs days at school I used to play for the school soccer team where my friends used to call me Kaka because my style of play was like him. Ashanti is a great kingdom with its chief as Nana Osei Tutu II. Ashanti's has a unique golden stool which unites all the states in Ashanti.

My Business

I rear poutry, sheeps, pigs, goats, a cocoa farmer, rice farmer and other small business. I choose this business because it's really giving me enough money to cater for the family. people from other communities around comes to my farm to buy all kinds of livestock for their respective occasions and business. it generates enough revenue and profit on daily basis due to the high purchase from the restaurants and pubs who buy these animals for their desire purpose of business.

Loan Proposal

As a farmer I am being innovatitive and trying new farminly project that would uplift my business to the standard I want it to be. I have done a research in my community and I have seen that the rate at rich people buy talapia is very high and I have advised myself to invest into fish farming. So I have acquire a land and the full payment is yet to be done. Taking this loan would help me pay the total amount to secure a land for this activity.

Income Source

I would be paying this loan. From the cash crops I grow forsale to my clinets on daily basis. I have some Susu savings I can depend on it.
