About Me

I am a 27 year old lady who has just passed out of Health Assistance Training School awaiting my posting.
I was born in Babile, a subdistrict of lawra District of Ghana. I attended Babile L/A Primary and J H S.
from there I went Daffiama Senior High School and completed in 2011.
From there I went to Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region to work in a cashew processing company to raise money for further education. I completed college of nursing ( Health Assistant Clinical in 2016 By the grace of God I have passed my licensing examination and I am now employed by the government of Ghana. But I still operate my fruit juice business to support my family.

My Business

I started this fruit juice business when I completed my nursing training with the help of my brother who offered me his refrigerator start my business with.
When I use 30 GHS to buy materials, I make a sale of 60-70 GHS from which I pay the electricity bill. This can only take two days to finish.
With this loan I am planning to put up a small container shop which will cost me about 1100 GHS. This will reduce the burden of preparing my drinks in the house and transporting it to the lorry station where my customers are concentrated.

Thank you.

Loan Proposal

This is going to be used to establish a shop by the road side where I will move my business to become more accessible to consumers.
I currently operate from home where I chill the drinks and carry them to a vantage point in town for sale.
With this loan, if I am able to establish the shop, it will enable me operate in large quantities and provide my cherished customers with constantly chilled drinks
