About Me

I am Okonkwo Henry from Oguta LGA in IMO state, with a Bsc in accounting. Currently residing at Delta State in Nigeria. I study Business studies accounting optional and graduated with second class upper. I have travelled to many States in Nigeria like Rivers State, Abia State, Anambra state, IMO state, Cross River state, Akwa ibom state, Kano state, Kaduna state, sokoto state, Lagos state, Bayelsa State, Edo state, Delta State and many more.
I am a christian and lover of God as well. I have attended Bible School in different churches.
Back in school like Federal College of education Rivers state, I occupied several position but in the department and in the fellowship.
In all my success record speaks for me even when I am out from the higher institutions.

My Business

I am into restaurant business and leather works such as shoe making and bag as well.

Recently, I started a business of leather work such as production of shoes, sandals, slippers, belt, handbags and repairs too.

The business has been a hugu success, at the south south and now planning to open a branch at south east.
I believe in production and empowering people too. Nothing like handwork.
I also write projects ( educational projectz to students who cannot write. I have a unpublished book on accounting education for secondary school students. The major constraints now is finance to publish it.

Loan Proposal

I intend to use the loan for the purchase of some machines for production since the world is advancing vastly and a lot of competition outside the the market. Buying of leather like different colours and other machines that will make my work neat and perfect for market.
