About Me

When I have the opportunity like this, I get so much excited to share. I was born and brought up in a village. My parents were both farmers so that's were I lent farming. We relocate to the city where things became very though. I was working with a construction company just to pay my school fees. I did this from my senior high till I completed the tertiary education. I am a Higher National Diploma holder in Accountancy, and am working seriouslyIaround the clock to to charter as an accountant. I have start the process of registration with ACCA. My hope is to get to the top. I was sponsoring myself and little support from family.

My Business

No matter what you want to do, there must be a start. You will have to make a move. One action is worth a thousand good intentions. I started this business after I completed the tertiary education. I was saving for my voluntary service. I first started with one pregnant goat. It was challenging at the beginning but with persistent and purpose I was able to get where I am with twenty-two goat's now. One of my pregnant goat gave birth to three more kids.

Loan Proposal

Hello lenders thank you for your support so far. My animals are healthy now. I was having problem where my farm was located. I have to relocate immediately from where i am now. Actually the land is a family land. I have located a land at a strategically area at the out sketch of town. Two plot of land which is 200*100 feet. This will cast me about ghc 5000.00 which is equivalent to $ 1250.00.I used the loan I just finished paying to make a part payment of the land which was $121.11. This will help me to increase my livestock and also increase my profit about 50% i will be able to support more children in school. My aim is to help the needy so if am able to establish this business, i will make life more enjoying and exciting for other people. Am a blessing to my world. Unfortunately zidisha has reduced my credit balance but all the same all is well. We are still here. Now zidisha is also deducting an amount from my current loan that I am raising and my current repayment rate has still not being better. Thank you lenders ones again for your support. Am looking forward for your fund. Thank you
