About Me

My name is Peprah Prince, 26 years of age. A hardworking and a very determined young man. I completed my basic education in 2008 went to the senior high school school for 4 years and completed in the year 2012. I'm currently working in my provision shop I opened few years ago. I am single and have not married yet. My parents were not rich but gave birth to 7 children of which I'm the 4th born. When I completed senior high school, my parents did not have money to cater for me in the tertiary institution that made join a sachet water company to work there. I worked there for some months and decided to start my own business.

My Business

The business I'm currently into is a provision store. This business is a shop opened for retailers. I go to buy some of the things I sell from whole sailors and come and sell them to my customers. I sell things like sardines, biscuits, tomato paste in tin, soaps, washing powder, Milo, milk, sachet water, bottle water and others. How I got this money to start this was the money I got from the sachet company when I was working there. I started this business with an amount of 100 Ghana cedis. Initially I use to collect some of my goods on credit then pay back after selling and still collecting some on credit.

Loan Proposal

This amount will be used to purchase some provisions (Milo, milk, biscuits, sardines to mention but few) in addition to what I sell to expand my business. This will help me to meet some of the demands made by my customers. These loan will help to me to pay my producers whenever I am going to buy some of the products.

    The loan has help to bring luck into my business through the increment of the number of peoples who buy from my shop. I'm really earning a lot. I use part of my profit as house keeping money and reinvest the remaining into the business.
    I thank all my lenders, God bless you bountifully.
