About Me

My name is Hellen Korkor Quaye. I am 26 years of age. I come from Amantin in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana, where I live currently. I belong to a family of five.-- my parents, two siblings and myself. I manage a provision shop for a living. The food I like best is fried potato with palava sauce and I hike as a hobby.
I am a Senior High School leaver and business minded.
My dream is to forever be an entrepreneur.

My Business

I manage a provision shop as a profession. My shop is located in Amantin near the chief's palace, in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana.
After working with one of my aunties to run her provision shop in Accra, I made some savings from my wages and started my own shop in Amantin. I started managing the shop alone and later after six months I employed two workers to help run the shop.
On every Friday which is a market day in Amantin, we convey some of our items to the market square and we make good market.
It is my major priority to meet the demands of my customers as well as enlarge my shop.

Loan Proposal

My dear lenders i want a loan of 557 Ghs to expand my provision store.If this loan is given to me i will use it to purchase the following items
tin fish, tin tomatoes, canned milk, sachets of rice and bags of gari.
There has been an increased demand for these items but when I obtain the loan, I will be able to purchase enough of these items and it will cause my income to increase by at least 50% weekly.Thank you.
