My name is Sandra Adu from Berekum in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana.I am from a family of two brothers and two sisters. My parents are Mr. Kumi Adu and Mrs. Rebecca Kumi. I started my elementary school at Methodist Primary School Berekum and after successful completion to Berekum Senior High School. After completion, I went to pursue Diploma in Education by distance learning with the University of Cape Coast Ghana. I was employed by the Ghana Education Service (GES) as a professional teacher after obtaining my Diploma in Education. My hobbies are; reading news from online, playing computer games, watching football match and making friends all over the world.
In fact, life was not easy after completing my Senior High School education .It was my wish to continue my education but due to financial constraint it was not so. I have to look for other alternative to survive. Closely looking at my community the best opportunity for me to start working on is establish a cold store. I was able to secure a loan from one financial institution known as “Wamfie Rural Bank” with the help of my senior brother. My cold store, popularly known as “Dream Big Cold Store” is located at a suburb of Berekum known as Biadan. I have been operating this for about four years now and it is as a result of this that I was able to further my education. Some of the fish and meat sold there are: Beef, goat meat, Chicken Layer Chest, Chicken back, Salmon, Red fish, Tilapia fish, Cassava fish etc. The demand for my services is very high nowadays all because of my cordial relationship with my customers. The need has arisen for me to also increase intake of fish and meat in other to provide good service to my customers. I am therefore pleading to Zidisha Lenders to assist me to expand my cold store.
The refrigerator I am using is big enough to accommodate more fish and meat for sale. I will use the requested amount to purchase more fish and meat. Many people are now buying from my cold store and still need to store more fish and meat. I will never fail in any way to pay back my loan if you do me favor. I am therefore appealing to all Zidisha lenders to help me with the loan.
