About Me

I am Alex Fosu Gyebour from Berekum but stays at Abesim near Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region. My parents gave birth to Nine sons and daughters and I happened to be the second. After my basic education, I had to stay at home for a number of years because my parents were taking care of my younger siblings who were also at school.

I later force my way to enter into a business school called SIKOKO. I literally had to carry gallons of kerosene to sell in bottles every evening in order to pay my way through the business school. I got employed as a messenger later by a church organisation. This helped me better my school results.

Years later I got an admission into Sunyani Polytechnic to pursue DBS.

My Business

My passion to get educated and fend for my children led me into business.

From very small beginnings, I opened a hardware and wood selling shop at Abesim. The business is very lucrative if there is much money to invest into it. This business has been the main backbone of my family. I believe with your help I will be able to operate this hardware and wood selling shop.

Loan Proposal

I wish to apply for a loan of $400 to help restock my hardware shop. I believe with the help of Zisisha, I can maximixe profit margin to fend for my family. I sell cement, nails, wood, paints etc. Though the profit on a product is small but, since our town is a developing area, many people are into constructing of new homes and offices hence, great profit if I can sell more.
