About Me

I am Akwasi Tweneboah a 37 years old hardworking man who is married with three children. I completed Jhs and furthered to Shs level where I couldn't go to the university due to financial problem. I sought to learn trading and ventures into shoe making business. I love football as hobby and working hard to support my family and the society as a whole.

My Business

I work as a shoe maker and makes things like shoes, sandals, slippers for schools and individuals who wants to purchase on wholesale. My job is very good as it provide profit on daily basis. with zidisha support I would be able to open branches to support more youths who wants to learn trade in shoe making. I always reinvest the profit I get from my business back and use some for other expenses.

Project Proposal

Schools in Ghana just reopened and the way my customers are buy sandals for their wards is very encouraging. I always run out of stock and taking this loan would help me to increase stock in order to meet my customers demand. I would be able to produce about 100 pairs of sandals with this amount I am requesting for and this would help me raise profit to support my work. Thank you
