Alice Mensah is my name. I come from Takwa in the Ashanti west district of my most beloved country Ghana. I was born on the christmas month on the 12th, 1980 which fell on Friday so I am affectionately called Afia Bronya by most people who knows me very well. Mr and Mrs Mensah of Takwa are my parents. Takwa in Ashanti is a small town. The biggest Tarkwa in Ghana is found in Western region where gold is mined.
I started this business after selling iced water in market and road side and began savings populary called susu, little over time I began to save money. Since where I live is a farming community so people always buy agro chemical for their farming so I realised that I could sell in smaller quantities with hope that more of the agro chemicals could be bought and sold to them Which I did and I have used to the proceeds to cater for my mother since she is a widow. Many people in my town like buying from me but because my capital is not enough to buy more chemicals I cannot make a lot of profit so I need a loan from good people like this organisation to expand my business so as I could get profit to cater for my mother.
Please I am always grateful and thankful to all lenders and the entire zidisha team for your assistance to some of us else life would have been difficult to me and my family. Please my widow mother is sick and transferred to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) at Kumasi. Please I'm supposed to pay GHS 1,200 which is equivalent to $279 therefore, I will use my profile to add the $65 so that my mother receives the necessary treatment in other to bring happiness in my family as I work hard to repay as early as possible.
