About Me

I am Catherine Dzanku, a native in the Ho-District of the Volta region of Ghana. My are parents Alex Dzanku and Aurelia Hosunu. They passed away through lorry accident when I was only 5 years old. I was placed with madam Janet Gli, my great grandmother, who could not afford my school fees nor proper feeding by then. It was difficult for me to progress to the Junior High School due to lack of parental care.
In the year 2006, I went to Accra as a street girl where I have been carrying loads for people( Kayayo). At the end of the day, I normally sleep at any place I get since I did not get any permanent lodging place.I stayed in Accra for two years when I came back to Ho to start I.C.T centre business with the little savings I made in Accra.

My Business

When I arrived at Ho, I have noticed the high demand for Information Communication Technology(I.C.T) centre at my area of residence, hence my decision to establish one in the area. Many people in need of such service need to pick a taxi and travel as far as 3 kilometers.
Since I have decided to establish I.C.T centre, part of the money was used to undergo I.C.T training for six months after which I used the rest to an office and buy two computers which I used to start the business.
As at now , I need money to expand the business by paying additional rent allowance and buying more computers with a printer for the work.

Loan Proposal

I raised my first loan from zidisha and my wonderful lenders supported. With that I say thank you. This has helped me to purchase one home used computer and paid for one year rental advance for my office. I am most grateful. I need another advance that will help me install a complete internet connection to the computers. This will cost $400.00
and it will expand my revenue stream.
My community is one that is in high demand of internet facility since we are in a global World.
