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

With the help of This platform I have been able to set up a barbering saloon and I will need this loan to help buy another another container at a different location to set up a new branch in my area to help me serve more customers.
This loan will go a long way to help me get that branch opened and I am confident Zidisha will never disappoint.

Income Source

Many busineses are being confronted with the challenges the outbreak has brought so far but like I have always maintained my line of business has not been affected by the outbreak therefore I will repay my loan without hindrance. Thank you
