About Me

My name is Samuel Yeboah and I am from Wenchi B/A Brong Ahafo Region in Ghana. I settled in Accra 15 years ago together with my wife and 2 kids. I came to Accra purposelessly for trading so that I would be able to look after my children and give them all the necessary support to acquire better qualifications, because I did not have the opportunity due to a poor family background.

Today technology and education has become very important; therefore, I have a purpose in mind to educate my children to a high level of education so that they will be learned and get better jobs in the near future. To fulfill this dream, I have a role to play as a father to help my children to acquire good qualifications and skills. This achievement deserves more money at this point in time.

So, I started a trade with a very small amount of money, but later I discovered that before I can succeed it will require more capital. Things were very difficult from early stages: how to start and where to find starting capital was a challenge. I experienced many difficulties, but, God so good, my prayers were answered when a friend recommended Zidisha. I saw it as an opportunity, as a result, and I believe with the help of Zidisha, I will excel.

My Business

Food retail and the supply of health products is my main business. I have been doing this for the past three years, and I am very proud because I earn more profit through daily sales. I consider it my main job and I do it full of passion, determination and focus, and by so doing I am able to take very good care of my family.

I have a vision: to open one more branch at another community in the near future, so that I can employ 2 or 3 people to work there. I believe this vision is achievable with help and support from the Zidisha loan program. I am very happy with my current loan because it will increase my working capital therefore my profit margin will also increase.

Part of the loan will go into the supply of health products because they're also in high demand due to a recent health awareness program in Ghana. More foodstuff is needed in the shop because my community is growing in population; therefore, customers are also increasing each day. I must render good service to help my customers get whatever they need to buy.

This time, if by God's grace I am able to earn more profit, I will use some of the profit to help my Church, taking care of my family and also help the needy, children's home in my community to be priority.

Football is my hobby, but due to time factors I only watch it on TV.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to purchase an items like Milk $200 (one hardened dollars), $250 of sardines, $150 of tin tomatoes, 10 bags of rice $300, 5 bags of sugar $400, $200 of Milo, $150 of washing up liquid, $200 of local rice.
This items are all needed in the shop because is an items the customers but the most.

I believe if i am able to get all this items my customers will be happy to get what they need and it will increase my net profit to 12%.
This will help to take care of my family and pay off the loan.
