About Me

I am Douglas Effah, a twenty-eight year old young man. I hail from Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I am fair in complexion . My parents are Mr Bediako Asare and Mrs Joyce Ankamah. I am the second born of the five children of my parent. I am a teacher,I worked for four year as acting headteacher and later gained an admission to further my education at the University of Education Winneba . I am currently in my final year.
My hobbies are; reading news from online, playing computer games , watching football match and making friends all over the world.

My Business

Orange Farming
I started orange farming after my College Education. Farming is something I have interest in right from childhood. I opted for it simply becauase my parents main occupation is farming and for that matter has a large pieces of farm land. So aquisition of land was not a problem. I have been continously planting oranges for the past 5 years and I am now having about 8 acre land of orange plants. Those ones I planted in my first year has started bearing fruits and is amazing how people troop in to buy it. I am currently having five(5) permanent workers and employ 5 casual workers during harvest time.The need has arisen to make expansion of the farm since there are still land to work on . I am therefore pleading to Zidisha Lenders to support me make my dream be a reality.


REPAYING OF LOAN
Because people patronize the product very well, I am able to make profit and can pay the loan from the profits. Aside this, I am a teacher and for that matter,I receive a monthly salary with which I can service the loans I am given. I therefore assure the lenders and the organization as a whole of my commitment to repaying every loan I will be granted.
Thank you.

Loan Proposal

I will buy some chemicals to enable me spray the entire farm to help prevent the farm from any future infections. There is a hint of a serious citrus infection at some other farms across the country. Therefore in other to safeguard my yet to be infected plantation, it has become very necessary that I secure this loan which will help me spray at least half of the farm. In all I will need about 500 dollars to enable me spray the entire farm. Counting on your usual cooperation.
