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

I always believe that education is the key to success. One will success with education, that is why I have decided to invest in myself to educationally improve or progress in life. Education is expensive, it involves impartation of knowledge from one person to another. This involves money, that fees. Formal education is the best form of education, that's why I have devoted myself to be formally educated to fit the dynamic world now. I'm a student o the Takoradi Technical University ,pursuing Hospitality management, the programme I have always dreamt about .I hope to do the best after school. With zidisha I would like to open my own restaurant after school but currently I'm tuning my mind towards the aquisation of Hospitality management certificate which will help me boost up my business in the near future.
I would like to pay part of my school fees with a loan from zidisha.
