About Me

My name is Faustina Manu. I am a Ghanaian by birth. I come from Fawoman a village in the Ahafo Ano South district of Ghana. I am married with two children. I am self dependent woman who believe that nothing is impossible when goal focused and determination mind exist. That was where my struggles begun. I did minor jobs of any kind provided its legal only to earn a living. I couldn't access formal education as I so wished. But I have long convinced my self to keep pressing forward no matter any circumstances. A friend lend me some money which I used to start this buying and selling business of mine. I hope for a better future. By the help of zidisha.

My Business

About three years ago as I was thinking what to do to earn a living, a friend of mine introduced me to provision store business. I got money from a friend. which I used to filled with all kinds of provisions. I was able to sell all the provisions and paid back the money lend to me by a friend. I sell all kinds of provisions. I get profit which I use some of it to cater for my children and helping the poor and my family

Loan Proposal

I want about six hundred dollars to buy more provisions. All the people's in the surrounding communities around my village like buying from me. But because I do not have enough capital I get less profit. Repayment of this loan will be very simple as part of my profit will be use. Thank you .
