About Me

Yaw Boadu is my name and I am a married with three children. My wife is deceased, so I am left with three children to cater for. I did have some basic education and professional studies too. My daughter's want to become a nurse, doctor and police. I grew up with both parents but stayed with my grandparents until I lost them al through old age. I now I live with my three daughters working hard to give them a brighter future.

My Business

I have a small school and provision shop that I run to support myself and the family. I admit students into my school and this gives me money each and everyday. I also have provision shop where i sell all kinds products like milk, sardines, soaps and other products to my neighbors. The kind of business generates profit and with Zidisha ibknow I would be able to expand my facilities in my school to accommodate more students to learn.

Loan Proposal

I am applying for this loan to enable more chairs for my school children to sit on and learn. There are alot of broken chairs within the classrooms and would need urgent replace for the children to study since we have only a week to reopen schools in Ghana. This loan would help me make chairs to replace the broken ones and would help the children to study well.

Income Source

I would pay the loan from the daily income I get from the running of the school and I also have some savings I can depend on it to pay shouldnincaee of any emergency.
