About Me

I am Akosua Susuana Afriyie a Ghanaian born child and married with two children. I completed my SHS at Ejisuman and ever since I ventured into trading. Growing up was very tough as I was the elder and much was expected of me. With hard work I now own my business. My grandmother used to sell palm oil and I used to help her, so after her death I took over and started trading in edible oil business. My first born want to become and a doctor and the second girl want to be a teacher. I like playing football and I support Asante Kotoko in Ghana.

My Business

I sell Palm Oil at wholesale to retailers and also retails some at my shop. Palm oil is used by most Ghanaian women in preparation of food and and restaurants use palm oil to prepare their food to sell. This makes them demand on daily basis. I am into this business because I developed passion for it since infancy when I was helping my grandmother. I use the profit I get to reinvest back into the business and this helps me a lot in my business, I also use the profit for settling some family expenses.

Project Proposal

I am applying for this loan to help me buy more palm oil from the farmers to sell to my clients. The demand for palm oil is very encouraging and with this loan I would be able to sell more to my customers. I would reinvest the profit back into the business and other expenses.
