About Me

I am Gloria Agbadi, a 23 year old Ghanaian, Biomedical Engineering graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Ghana. I had my primary and junior high school education at St Mary's International School and Better Best Academy respectively after which I studied General Science at Achimota Senior High school.
I have a peculiar interest in fashion and colours which found me searching for new jewellery designs in my leisure periods. Bead making in a ind
igenous activity in Ghana and beaded accessories are an irreplaceable item in our cultural dressing.
Growing up in a country like mine where graduate unemployment is on the rise, I decided to turn my interest in bead making into an employment opportunity for myself and others.
After 3 years of bead making I developed an interest in fine jewelry and now learning and developing new skills in the field.

My Business

Fashion is a fast growning industry all around the world . It is a very promising one with very high demands since clothing is a basic human need. I want to promote African fashion especially beaded accessories. Through my Zidisha loans, I have been able to fund my business advertisements on social media and widen my customer base by 250%. My goal is to expand my business to a world class beaded accessory and jewellery production company. The profit I make is reinvested into buying more raw materials and equipment to increase production.

Loan Proposal

This loan will enable me buy a tablet to monitor online orders and attend to them promptly. 70% of my customers shop online and it has become necessary to buy a device to monitor my customers activity even when I am not available ( I currently do this on my mobile phone)
The tablet costs $140.00.
