About Me

Georgina Amponsah is my name. I just berekum in the brong Ahafo Region. I attended the basic school at Berekum D / A primary and college. From there I went to berekum senior high and after that I could not continue my education again because of lack of money. I then joined some women to help her sell her food. I worked with the woman for 2 to 3 years and because of my hard work I was able to accumulate a certain amount. I then started my own food business and it is growing gradually. The name of my company is Georgina Food Sales. It is located at the main center of berekum. Many people use to buy my food because of the right way I prepare it. The unique hobby I have is what I never sell people buy in abundance and it is splendid.

My Business

The Georgina food sale provides dishes like rice and stew, stew we have beans, cabbage and tomato stew. Also we supply Ampesi and stew, It is also a local dishe. We also sell meat such as eggs, fried fish, etc. These products are useful in the sense that without food, man can not live. The food also gives the body energy to do the job. So every human being needs it for survival so the demand is high. I have two employees with whom I work now but I hope to employ more in the future. I chose this kind of business because the food helps a lot in the life of the human being and the demand is also high. With the loan, I can get let say $ 50 a week.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to buy rice, cabbage, beans, yam etc for my food selling. Because a lot of people or all people need the food to help them grow well the demand is high , so i will get money to expand my business and also get some money to feed my family. I can also employed a lot of people to also work with me. With this i expect my profit to increase to 60 percent. So with the loan i can get a profit of $55 a week.
