About Me

I am a graduate of Tamale polytechnic, I pursued HND marketing.
I am sociable and open- hearted person who attaches seriousness to anything I do.
Married with two children, I am versatile and committed to meeting deadlines when it comes to business issues. I am an entrepreneur with the vision of growing my business. The business has help me to serve my community and they need not go to town to purchase clothing.

My Business

I started the business in November 2016 after applying round for job and could not get one.
After completing my National service in 2014 and not getting any already made job anywhere I decide to set up my own small business. So I started selling second hand clothing popularly known as “fosse” in Ghana and I sell ladies wigs and mesh popularly known by that name by ladies. I also sell detergents for home cleaning and disinfectants. But with the “fosse” I am into both adult and children’s clothing but with insufficient capital. I am located in a village called Kogni –Mile 9 near the Tamale international airport.

Loan Proposal

I want to thank lenders for the Past loan and an opportunity to borrow again. I will buy second hand children clothing $ 50, blanket $80, women vest $75.
When am granted this amount it will increase the inventory I had so that always there will be stock for my customers.
I expect to make additional profit of $20 each week.
The profit will be plough back into the business and my clientele base will be expanded. Currently, I serve only my community but with the increment in amount I can open an outlet in the nearby community.
