About Me

My name is Isaac Apoma and I am 36 years of age. I am married with three children. I completed Jhs but couldn't continue to further my education at Shs level because of lack of financial support. My parent were pretty traders and couldn't cater for my education so I decide to learn some trade in barbering. The hardship I went through made me travel to Burkina Faso to search for greener pastures but return back to Ghana because life there was very tough. I used the money i got from my stay at Burkina Faso to open a shop and now i depend on that for a living. It's my duty as a father to cater for my children so i am doing all i can to make their future bright.

My Business

I have a barbering shop where i shave people for money. I charge per haircut and and save the money I earn from the services I provide. Barbering Shop business is a good business which with a little support I can open branches to help me raise enough profit. I need support hence my decision to join Zidisha.

Loan Proposal

I need this loan to buy a new shaving machine to work. The old one is faulty and taking this loan to buy one would help me serve my customers very well. The cost of the machine Ghc 200 and with the help of this loan I would be able to secure one. This would raise profit and support my family.

Income Source

I would pay the loan of my savings and the money I get from my business. i would also make sure to pay the money by weekly basis as ordered by Zidisha.
