About Me

My name is Amankwa Isaac and I come from Bawku in the Upper East of Ghana. Bawku is a village in Ghana that is fond of farming plenty onion for both subsistence and commercial consumption. I grew up from this village and got married and with 2 beautiful children. I have also being in the business for the pass 2 years making active work and making more turnovers.
However I had some sort of little education too that always helps me in my everyday business. Because it is through this little onion business that has made me who I am today.
Despite all these goodies , Man still meet certain challenges in whatever one does. Sometimes these challenges boils down to post harvest loses, theft, pilfering in our farm lands and many more which can not easily be averted.

My Business

I love doing what I do and also trying to attain it to least to a minimum perfection. My business is moving on well in the sales and more of harvesting around this time. I have been able to load about 2 trucks already to the city of Kumasi and Accra, but currently lacks the capacity to pay off the cost of transportation the 3 rd truck yet to load to these various market centers.
It is on this note that I plea with my lenders to help me be able to meet this pressing challenge and so to have a step forward in my business. I would be much grateful for that sort of assistance that may come any where from here. Kindly help me wonderful people. Thank you.

Loan Proposal

The support in my earlier loan has pave progress for my continue and interesting stay in the tomatoes business. The business however isn't all that simple as one can think of, because one has to wake up at dawn and water these crops.
Through out all these struggles i have finally made it again to my next harvest. Currently i am anticipating about 40 bags of onions in my next harvest, these time a little bigger than my first harvest.

I therefore wish to make an appeal for a support and budget of 48 pics of jute sacks to bag the produce come next month.
