My name is Mary Nyarko; a native of Agona Duakwa in the Central Region of Ghana. I was born and bred in Agona Duakwa, Ghana and still lives at Agona Duakwa.
As a young lady of twenty-eight (28) years of age who holds a Bachelor of Education in Community Based Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from University of Education, Winneba – Ghana, I aimed at starting my own business in the community in which I currently live (Agona Duakwa) since searching for a job is becoming a global problem in my country (Ghana). I currently work with Salvation Army Community Rehabilitation Project, Agona Duakwa as a Rehab Personnel (Contract Staff).
My personal business as a trader at our community market started in the year 2014 with a current capital base of GH¢ 5,000.00 (USD 1,157.41). I started as tomatoes and pepper seller on table top but have currently increase my product base to all kinds of vegetables, spices, foodstuffs, and smoked fishes with the little monthly earnings from my contract job at Salvation Army Community Rehabilitation Project. Currently, the local government has constructed a market complex for the community but it’s going out for a price. It’s my dream of owning one of the shops in the market for business expansion.
I have a large customer base due to the good interpersonal relationship that I have with them (members of the community) and still hoping to expand my customer base to other communities around.
Combining my trading business with the Rehab Personnel job is not an easy task at all but with the assistance from my lovely mum, things are just working out perfectly. In my absence at the market, my mum takes over. Such a lovely mum I have.
Capital injection through Zidisha is so far the easiest, fastest, and free. No collateral is required. As a young lady who is into trading with no physical collateral, acquiring loan from Zidisha will increase my working capital. Stock turnover will be high and will be able to well manage my customers.
The loan will eventually be use to purchase more stocks.
