About Me

I am named Catherine Asimah Pelletier, I live in Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana with House Number NTE 006, Newtown in Berekum municipality. I had my senior high education at Notre Dame Girls Senior High School and continue at Sunyani Polytechnic and pursued Diploma in Business Studies (Accounting) certificate. I am first born of my families. I am currently teaching at St. Augustine Senior High School, Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana while I am also pursing my distance learning at Catholic University, Fiapre. I have my own Hardware shop also in Berekum Municipality. My hobbies are; Movies, Reading and Playing volleyball.

My Business

After completing Polytechnic, I decided to further my education at the University without any delay. But I couldn’t get it so due to financial problem. My parents who will take all my responsibility also tried their best after completing Polytechnic. So I soon realized that, if I may work and get money to support a little amount I have, it will surely help me as well and also take care of my parents. So I went for a job at one of the Rural Bank in the Berekum Municipality and work for about one and half 1 ½ years. So I saved part of my monthly salary in order to support my education. After that, I got another chance at St. Augustine Senior High School as a teacher. And I also soon realized that, if I may open Hardware shop in my community it will surely patronize as well as there is no any hardware shop at that area. So I started the Hardware shop with a few items including; Wheel barrow, Paint, Shovel, Hammer, Screw driver, Saw blade, Nails, Padlock, Carpet, Paint brush, and many more. Now I can say that, my shop is always busy and well improving. Because now people are putting up their block house, so they always request for the items to use for their work. I hope this business will help for my education and my parents’ daily meals. I am currently teaching, so I will be able to pay this loan back, even if I couldn’t use the profit of this business, I will use my monthly salary to re-pay this loan.

Loan Proposal

I am pleading to Zidisha and dear Lenders to support me to add more items in my shop, some of the items I want to add to my currently once are; Iron sheet, Cement, Iron rod, Paint, Nails and many more. So far as this business is patronizing, if I you lend me any amount, the profit will be more than the previous days in order to support my school and take care of my parents. So please, come to my aid and help me to fulfill my best dreams. Thank you.
