About Me

I am Joseph Saaquah, 29 years of age. I am the last from 3 children of my parent,My family could have been a lovely one, but sadly I never got the opportunity to set eyes on my dad. I took it calmly growing up because no matter what happens, life must go on. Have always been a respectful, obedient, just, and hardworking person. Have completed senior high school at Gomoa Secondary High Technical School in the central region of Ghana, though it wasn't easy financially due to my mum being a single parent with 3 kids. Life hasn't been easy, but I've never given up because I'm determined to be educated. Sometimes I have to drop from school, though, to help mum in selling to get money for my fees and my chop money (money for daily provision of food is called "chop money" in Ghana). Through zidisha loan,i have been able to attend an IT school to gain myself a diploma in IT system admin certificate. am currently working but i dont want this certificate to be the end of my IT education but the beginning . I really want to continue my IT education,though it expensive but i wont let finances prevent me. am ready to work hard and go the extra mile to go higher in the IT field. I challenge myself not to give up because everything is possible in life. since Zidisha is with me, I can boldly say that my dreams will surely come to reality.
I live in a peaceful environment with lovely people. I love listening to music and singing along.

My Business

Hello dear Lenders,first of all i would like to thank and appreciate you all for always supporting my loan application.

Loan Proposal

Hello there dear Lenders, let me start by thanking you all for supporting my past loan application. It was of a great help to me.

Am taking this loan for a forklift training. Am very interested in knowing how to operating heavy duty machines but starting with forklift. Am doing this because I want to have another source of income as one source of income would never give me a financial freedom.
It a 2 months training and the cost is Gh2000.
Would also buy a form of Gh100.
There are other items we would be required to buy for the training which also amount to Gh400 (rough estimate)
Part of the loan too would be use for my transportation to the school on daily bases.
This loan would be of a very great help to me. Would be very grateful if given like always.
My financial status would never be the same after this training. Thank you.
