About Me

my childhood was not easy for me. My dad took me away when I was seven. I started school I was ten in a town called Akontombra Nkwanta. I used to walk two miles before i get to school. I was later catered for by a man in the town. After stage six I was sent to Techiman to continue my education. Life was not easy for me at the junior high school. At times, I have to stop school and work for money. This continued in senior high school. After senior high school school, I didn't get any help to further my education. There was no hospital in town so I started to operate a small chemical store with the help of a friend. The people around here are mostly farmers. They celebrate a festival called 'yam festival' every year. My children would like to be generalist and bank managers. I use to play football with my friends and do research through the internet.

My Business

I sell chemicals(drugs) to help people relief their pain or sickness. The people do hard work in their farm. They become tired and at times fall sick, so they buy the drugs to cure themselves. I chose this business in order to help the people here from death. I love to see all my people around me in good health. I normally spend 200GHS to purchase the chemicals (drugs). I will reinvest the profit in my children's education.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan for the following; 1 box of haemoglobin- $25.6, a box of famacap-$29.48, cotton wool(5)- $14.10, a box of abyvita syrup- $12.80, a box of samalin syrup-$12.80, efpac blister-$46.92. These will help expand my business and help the people around me. I will reinvest the profit I will get into my business.
