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 have been providing barbering for clients inside by house which is profitable but I want to reach more clients for more profits.
I need the help of members to get money to buy a container to use it as a saloon on the roadside.
I hope to get help from here.

Income Source

Though it is obvious the challenges many businesses are facing but it doesn't have great impact on my line of business, because regardless of the outbreak people still want to look nice each and everyday hence, I have been having clients patronising my services.
