I am called Yeboah Silas. I am 28 years of age, dark in complexion and moderately built. I come from Atebubu in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I am from a family of three and the first son of my parents. I had my primary and Basic Education at the Atebubu D/A Basic School and furthered at Amantin Senior High School in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I could not continue to the tertiary level due to financial hardships. My father died when I was 18 years old so I was catered for by my mother alone. My mother is a poor farmer so no money to further to the tertiary level of the educational ladder. I am a self-employed. I run my own agro chemical business. I entered into this business due to the high demand for agro chemical products. Over the few years of my practice, I have been able to employ two people who have been giving a helping hand at the shop. The food I like best Fufu and bush meat soup. The game I like best I is football. My hobbies are reading, swimming and watching football.
The name of my agro chemical shop is "THE FAVOUR OF THE LORD AGRO CHEMICALS". It is located at Atebubu along the Atebubu-Kumasi main road. I started the business about 5 years ago. When I stared, I use to sell the products on Tuesdays which is the market day of Atebubu. I started this way because I have no shop to keep the products so I do keep them in the house then on Tuesdays I bring them to the market to sell. Gradually, I managed to get small metal container in which I now keep the products and sell them everyday. I sell agro chemical products like fertilizers,pesticides weedicides etc. I have employed two workers who have been helping me always at the shop. I live in a farming community so my products go on well for me. I was able to get profit ranging from $35 to $60 every week. Which assist me to cater for my family. My prime aim is to expand the business so that I can employ more people to reduce the unemployment rate in my country.
Dear lenders,thank you for the first loan given to me .It has really helped me a lot in my business. I need a second loan of GHS 391.00 to help purchase enough agro chemicals like fertilizer,pesticides and other weeds killer into my shop so that i can sell more to the local Farmer's in my area. When i get this loan to purchase this items,it will help increase my weekly profit by 20% so my lenders help me and i will repay my loan on time.thank you
