About Me

My name is Millicent ADukwe. I was born in a village call Yawsaekrom in the Brong Ahafo Region.I was born in 26th of July 1975.I am the last born of my parents.I have four siblings.
I come from the northern part of Ghana but my parents came to Brong Ahafo purposely to do farming. So they were farmer. The proceed from the sale of foodstuff was what my parents used in sponsoring our education My dad died when I was five years old and my mother had struggle in taking care of five children.things became difficult for my mum so my other four siblings became drop out from school. After my national service I secure a job at Capital Rural Bank ltd in the year 2006. I then got married to Mr Kwadwo Appiah who is a barber and a petty trader. God has blessed us with three children.

My Business

I started a soft drink shop last two years January 2015 to support my monthly income. I sell different kinds of soft drinks like minerals, multi fruits drinks, milo drink, voltic water, sachet water and other petty things like candies, bread and biscuits. Sales is very high, I sell about ten to twelve crates of malt and coca cola a days. The location of my business attract more customers. I operate the shop myself in the evening from 7:00 -10:00 pm. My business is located at capital estate near abesim, Sunyani- Ghana.

Project Proposal

I have a plan to purchase 18 bags of rice, the price per bag is GHS300.00 which will amount to GHS5,400.00, I will also purchase 6 boxes of vegetable oil, a cost per box is GHS450.00 which will amount to GHS2,700.00. Finally, I will purchase 50 crates of minerals, a cost per crate cost GHS65.00 which will also cost GHS3,250.00. When the loan is approved I will be able to purchase all items mentioned above to increase my income from 45%to 60%. with this I will be able to pay my wards University fees. Thanks.

    My previous loan has impacted me to save Ghs2000 which would be used to pay my ward school fees next year. My ward would be entering university next year and many of the basic needs of her has been bought with the help of the previous loan. Thanks to my lenders.

    Good afternoon Julia, I would like to plead with you and your team to add the risk charge amount to the principal so that we can pay it in instalment rather than charging it out front. When it is deducted from the principal during disbursement, the amount remaining becomes smaller to work with and unprofitable; so if you and your team can add the risk charges to the principal, I think everyone would get the full amount to work with and repay in time.

    Members, I need your help, I was supposed to pay a weekly instalment of Gjs187 but I paid Ghs250 on 22/05/2020 which means I paid higher amount but unfortunately, what reflected on my payment history is Ghs63. I need your help. Something is wrong somewhere.
