About Me

I am George Owusu, born on May 4, 1972. I come from Adense in the Kwabre East District in Ashanti Region. I am married with four children. I have completed second cycle education and I am now at my final year at the University of Cape Coast pursuing a Diploma in Basic Education. I am a recognized farmer within my District and the nation as a whole. I have a passion for reading and music.

My Business

I am a farmer and I have received two awards. In 2005, I received the District Best Award for Grass cutter at the Kwabre District comprising of eighty-six communities. At 2012, I received the District Best Award for Citrus at Kwabre East. I now own eleven acres of citrus plantation, two acres of coconut plantation and two acres of mixed food stuffs. I have the zeal to expand my grass cutter production, add rabbits to it, give professional care and maintenance to the citrus farming and start small-scale processing of the oranges in the future.

Thank you, Zidisha Team. Thank you, my Lenders for your acceptance and support, among others, which has helped me so much and has opened a new door of financial relief. Thank you also for your constant reminding of repayment dates which also helps me to be creditworthy and responsible. Your support has helped me, my family, friends and my community at large.

Loan Proposal

I humbly solicit for another loan of $550 to help me expand and maintain my citrus farm. The loan will boost my seasonal income. I already have the land, so I will use $250 for clearing, final preparation and planting. The cost per farm help per day at my area is $6, so I can employ the service of about 42 people on it. I will also use $180 to buy 150 seedlings of citrus for the planting and that will qualify me to be selected for award in the future. The rest of the $120 will be use for purchasing of agricultural inputs for plant health and growth.

Thank you, my Lenders; thank you, Zidisha Team.
