About Me

My name is Portia Quayson, I come from Kikam, a town in the western region of Ghana. I attend Church of Christ church. I'm 25 years old. I had my basic education at Kikam Methodist basic school and later continued to the junior high school in the same school. I attended Bonzo kaku senior high school. I'm the only female child of my parents. Upon completion of my senior secondary school I enter the Takoradi technical university where I offered Higher national diploma in Catering and hospitality management. I'm a graduate of the Takoradi Technical University and I deem it good as an entrepreneur to start a business that will help me now and in the future.

My Business

I'm Portia Quayson, I'm a graduate of Takoradi Technical University, Ghana. I studied catering Hospitality management Hospitality management has been my dream ever since I completed junior high school, JHS. I was inspired by a restaurant service provider who is efficient and always delight in serving the community with her whole might and also has good cooking habits.
I'm very good in cooking, because of that I have deemed it good to certify myself in it to pave ways for me to do it more and better. I know in the near future, cooking will be one of my sources of income. I never joked with cooking. Now, I have opened my own small restaurant, I prepare all kinds of food ,local and continental dishes
With the help of zidisha, I believe in myself and I'm becoming a good business woman and some of the praise goes to zidisha for granting me a loan to do business and I also hope to expand it.
This is my ultimate purpose for now.

Loan Proposal

My name is Portia Quayson, I'm an entrepreneur, a student. I deal in food vending, I have a mini restaurant that gives me money for my school fees and other things. I have decided to add pastry making to my restaurant. I want to bake bread, do meat pie, fish pie and other cakes because the people in my community patronize it a lot.
The reason why I'm asking for a loan from zidisha is to buy a baking equipment including hot oven for baking. I would like to sell my pastries at this cost range $1 to $3 depending on the size of the cake. This price range is affordable and also enable me to pay the loan on time. Thank you.
