About Me

I am George Owusu, born on May 4, 1972. I come from Adense in the Kwabre East District in Ashanti Region. I am married with four children. I have completed second cycle education and I am now at my final year at the University of Cape Coast pursuing a Diploma in Basic Education. I am a recognized farmer within my District and the nation as a whole. I have a passion for reading and music.

My Business

I am a farmer and I have received two awards. In 2005, I received the District Best Award for Grass cutter at the Kwabre District comprising of eighty-six communities. At 2012, I received the District Best Award for Citrus at Kwabre East. I now own eleven acres of citrus plantation, two acres of coconut plantation and two acres of mixed food stuffs. I have the zeal to expand my grass cutter production, add rabbits to it, give professional care and maintenance to the citrus farming and start small-scale processing of the oranges in the future.

Thank you, Zidisha Team. Thank you, my Lenders for your acceptance and support, among others, which has helped me so much and has opened a new door of financial relief. Thank you also for your constant reminding of repayment dates which also helps me to be creditworthy and responsible. Your support has helped me, my family, friends and my community at large.

Loan Proposal

I am now requesting for a loan of $970.00 to help me send my two daughters and one of my sons to new schools to better their academic performance. Before meeting Zidisha I was managing and coping with the current schools they are attending. But now that Lenders and Zidisha Team is solidly behind me I am sure and hope that I can make it. I will use the money to cater for all their needs as far as changing their schools is concern.
If the request loan is given, I will be able to cater for the family, the farm among others without any financial stress.

    Your lenders are waiting to be repaid George. We cannot make loans and give opportunities to others if we are not paid back. Please resume making payments on your Zidisha loan. I see you have been trying to repay your loan over time. This is greatly appreciated.

    I'm in the crop maintenance season and it is more financially demanding.

    This is the planting season at my place and I have to pay for supporting workers to assist me. Hopefully by the close of one month, I can pay the rest of the money with ease. Please kindly prompt me when time to pay is due.

      I hope the market picks up for you to sell your products George. Reduce your loan repayments if you must to keep your repayment rate in good standing. Lenders would rather see smaller payments made on time rather than missed payments.
      Wishing you and your family a wonderful festive season and a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperious New Year!

    Thanks for the opportunity given to me to assist in the recruitment and nurturing of new members into the Golden financial family. That has been my dream and I have started. I have come to realize that Zidisha Team and the God hearted Lenders are not only interested in the number of members but also how the new member commitment in terms of credit wealthiness. I have about ten people I nurturing and will bring them on board. I hope they are going to encourage Lenders and add more beautiful colours to the existing image of the organization.

    I have to hire a teacher to assist my son who is writing his final year Exams at the Junior High School Level June of this year. Since Zidisha is interested in both my financial and social development and as well as my repayment I have reduced.

    Hi George, Congratulations on your loan being funded! Please keep your lenders updated on how you use your loan to expand your business. I would like to learn about how you farm citrus fruits. I live in a very cold place where they will not grow. Regards, Mary
