About Me

I am named Edith Yah, I had my primary and Secondary education at Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I live in the Christian families of Mr. Robert Mensah and Monica Akos Mansah of Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. My house number is MP 122, Berekum Brenyekwa. When you reached Berekum, just board car from main station and alight at Presbyterian Senior High School, Berekum Brenyekwa my house is just nearby or asks for Papa Mensah story building. I opened my own tailoring shop after completing my three (3) years learning with name ‘KEEP ON TAILORING SHOP’ in the Berekum Municipality. My hobbies are Writing, Laughing and watching movies.

My Business

After completing my senior high education, I stayed home about two (2) years for my parents to feather my education at the Berekum College of Education, and they tried their best several times but still not going through because of money, I got an admission but there’s no money. So they sent me to Kumasi to learn how to sew a beautiful dress, and I have completed peacefully. Because it’s not only school man can be prosper. So I opened my own tailoring shop with name “KEEP ON TAILORING SHOP” in Berekum opposite main station. As my perfect work and a nice dress I always sew to my customers, I have a big contract with some other schools which they brought their materials to sew for their students. Because of my respectful and my good work, I always busy at work. And my business is well known in the Berekum Municipality especially my community, so it’s very booming and patronizing as well.

Loan Proposal

I want to expand my workplace and make it wider, because there’s more space for me to add, and buy more sewing machines for those who are ready to learn from me. So I need support from Zidisha and dear Lenders to do that. Even when a customer’s comes in my shop there’s no enough seat for them, so if I may expand my workplace and make it wider, my customers will always feel comfortable when they comes to my workplace. I hope you surely help me to fulfill my dream. Thank you.
