Valley View University where i studied Degree in Mathematics, in 2016 July i was graduated as a graduate,then my lif turned from biterness,sorrow to a fufil dream and a great person and now joy and then happiness among my family of seven.Upon my profession as a graduate i still went into farming and am doing very well,the land at my area a very good for agriculture especially yam tubers,maize beans cassava etc.Because am a salary worker it was easy for me start with the small capital i had.And now am married with one male boy of two year now.I like sports because in my school days i was a footballer.

My Business

I am a salary worker,and still am into farming especially yam,maize,cassava and beans,i farm them myself and also buy and keep them when their prices are good i suply them to my customers at the market,among them all is the yams i cultivate in large quantity,my place is link with major road network so is very easy in trasporting them to the cities for sale and the buyers themselves come to buy since there is large market at my area.With the help from Zidisha previous loans my lenders lend me and my monthly salary of about 540 dollars ( 1500 ghs) i coul buy and sale tbose crops at all time.The last loan i obtained from zidisha helped me and i bought more yams setts and planted just within this july i sold about 1800 pieces of yam tubers making an amount of 4678.69 ghs.and there is still more i would make sale but then my lenders gave me 1400 ghs.So i make profit from my farming busisness,i use this profit to cater for family and i help pay their children school fee.
