About Me

I am Adu Gyamfi Hayford a cold store operator and sachet water supply here in Accra, Ghana and have two kids. I
Currently run a cold store and with one staff. Am Fair in complexion and 5.2m tall with a diploma in computer science. In 2012 I got employed to Game stores a massmart subsidy and as a salesman, resigned in to start my own business on 15/10/2020 . So far I have invested Ghc4200 which I have make Ghc805 savings from the capital invested in stocking.

My Business

Cold Store:
I want to buy more goods to stock it so that I can sell varieties of cold meat to expand my business. My area (sowutuom) has a high patronage of cold meat even though I can not meet the demands of varieties of cold meat therefore when the loan is approved I can stock more of the cold meat to meet demand and yield more income and open mini branches to other sub-areas to create job for sales personal in future: Samon fish,Cow meat,Goat meat, redfish and Tuna and gizzard.

Source of income
I run the cold store full time 24/7, and have 1 worker employed with few boxes of cold meat u make all my profit with no loss at all, I have a 6kg generator to back my power in case lights go out. I make Ghc160 daily. And with loan to top up my capital I will make more income from this business food sells everyday here in my Area to enable my repay my loan and also increase sales.

Loan request
I humbly request a fund of GhC65000 to increase my stock to meet demand for profitability.

Project Proposal

The fund if founded would be used to purchase more meat and stock for Christmas sales. I have an intention to add fresh cow meat to my cold chain business therefore I urged all lender's to help me achieve this goal through zidisha.
I have a good location and I have a lot of customers who always demand fresh meat .
