About Me

My name is Patrick Quaye from Agona Swedru in the Central Region of Ghana. I am 31 years of age and married with a lovely kid. I have live in this town since childhood. I am a hard working guy since my tertiary education level. Over the past 6 years, i have tried to establish my own career through the help of my senior brother by name George Offei. It is my vision to grow my business and add more to it.

My Business

In the year 2011, I started a printing press business by name Data Publicity Co. Ltd with my brother George Offei with a start-up capital of Two Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢2,000.00). It is a joint company and it is own by my brother (George Offei) and I with an equal capital contribution.

The company is a printing press firm. We offer the following services:
1. Sticker printing,
2. Flex banners printing,
3. T-Shirt printing,
4. Graphic designing,
5. Photocopies,
6. Printing of invitation cards, etc.

Our customer base is large and we hope to increase. The sky is our limit

We currently operate with three other staffs and I am the General Manager.

Loan Proposal

Acquiring a loan from Zidisha will enable me increase my working capital. In addition, it will help me increase my market base and profitability. It will help avoid stock out or nonavailability of raw material for various printing jobs.
I therefore plead with the various fund donors to help me grow my business.
