About Me

I am Isaac Afful from Elmina in central region of Ghana. I am from a family of eight siblings. I graduated from the technical University three years ago but life has not been easy for me at all.
As someone who is physically challenged I cannot do work that involves more muscles , I decided to learn how to do handy work. I learnt how to barber people for money for daily living since there is no support from anywhere.
I usually barber clients in my house at a charge.

But I have decided to have a permanent structure where I can use it as a saloon for barbering.
But there was no hope until I came across Zidisha and my hope renewed, now I have a friend in Zidisha and I hope the good lenders on this platform will not let me down in anyway. I will need your help so that
I will be able to take care of some basic needs and take care of my young siblings from the proceeds I will get from barbering business ,because I believe when I put up the saloon I will be able to reach more people to patronise my service.
I will also be able to employ some extra hands hence giving employment to others.

My Business

I run home barbering for people which has been very profitable for the years I have been in business.
I am also a graphic designer but that is on contract basis and I am into screen printing (just started)

I am currently setting up a printing press too.

Loan Proposal

I will need the loan to help me pay my lease of the land where my barbershop will be sited and also to buy a barbering chair and other miscellaneous that will help the shop to look professionally fit for purpose.
I have the hopes in Zidisha and its lenders to help me secure these items. Thank you Zidisha for such and initiative

Income Source

Though the global climate isn't favorable for business but my line of business has never been affected for that matter a lot of clients continue to patronize my service so I will be able to pay back as I have been doing always.
