About Me

Life had not been easy for me as at now. My name is Asiedu Michael who hails from Brong Ahafo Region.i started my education with a basic school in our community called Biadan. I completed in the year 2006 and finished my senior high in 2009,but due to hardship and poverty i could not continue my education. I thought life was over for me since all my friends and class mate were schooling. I moved in into trading where by i sold some cosmetics in a shop. I saw that i need to have a property since i could not made it to school.I ventured into farming aside the cosmetics to join my parents since that has been their source of emplyment all this while. As a young guy in farming, i was nerva easy but due to perseverance and aim to succeed i moved on.

My Business

I ventured into farming because i had basic knowledge about it growing up. Am a young guy who is established in Berekum. My parents were farmers so i used to help them when i close from school and during vacation. Ghana has a potential land for farming thus all the farming lands are fertile enough to grow almost 90% of the worlds crops.But is not easy farming in Ghana due to inadequate finances to help hure labour and machinery for farming activities. I have four acres of cocoa farm inwhich i need a loan of about $450 in other to hire labour. I cannot do all by myself and hope zidisha will help me. Thank you

Loan Proposal

Is been nice experience working with Zidisha and its noble lenders. My expectations are been met gradually. A loan of about 400 dollars will go a long way to hire a labourer for a mazimum of one year to help my farm work. Cash crop like cocoa is a lucrative work in our part of the world. Its seasonal in nature allows you to plan with the icome that will be generated and used profitably. Farm work is very difficult in our country since the tools and equipments needed for effectiveness are lacking, hence human labour are prefered. Its very difficult to run a farm with only one hand. You need more hands to control the weeds that grow in the farm, applying pesticides, pruning and fertilzationg. As soon as the loan is granted, i will seek the needed advice to hire a hard working labour for fruitful year. My previous loan helped me hire labour for seasonal clearing and weeding of land

    i was given a message below after lenders funded my third loan from zidisha.
    We regret to inform you that your application was not among those accepted for Zidisha membership. Since we receive many more applications than we can fund, we are only able to admit a portion of those who apply.

    There is a small chance that if more funding becomes available we may invite you to reapply in the future, but since this is not guaranteed, we recommend that you seek funding from other sources.
    Why will zidisha do that to me after repaying all my first and second loan.

    Thank you all Zidisha team and my noble lenders, i wish you a happy merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
    I would like to increase my weekly installment since my trees are yielding more this season as a result of the introduction of fertilizers which was engineered by zidisha loan. I have been responsible now and taking care of my family at large.
