About Me

I am Elijah Tettey. I am 30 years of age and a Ghanaian. I am the
second child of a family of four and attended senior high school at
St Pauls Technical At Kukurantumi.
I live in Kumasi, Ayigya at house number Plot 18 Block 3. I am into the selling of mobile phones. I started this business because after
graduating from the Kumasi Poly-Technic
with a Electrical Engineering Technician Part III in Electrical, i could not secure for myself
employment. I decided to enhance my marketing skills into se

My Business

I am into the selling of mobile phones. I started the
business after a fruitless search of jobs. i started the business with
an amount of money borrowed from my Dad's pension pay. The business is now progressing because about 90% of Ghanaian's uses mobile phones, but I need more capital or money-try support to purchase a shop where i can sell a lot of phones and it accessories to enlarge my business. The money gained from the proceeds of selling the mobile phones will be used to pay the loan. The first loan from Zidisha helped me alot and I'm very grateful. I'm really convinced with the support from Zidisha, I'll be able to achieve my goals.

Loan Proposal

First of all let me Use this opportunity to thank zidisha and the lenders for supporting me up to this stage. I've been in the mobile phone business for a while and it has helped me a lot and now I have also attached the business with the sale of computer and it accessories. With this loan, I'll buy two desktop computers and it accessories like, USB hub, USB cables, head phones etc. I'll also buy some mobile phones and it accessories as well and with the interest I'll earn from this loan and the ones to come. I'll invest part of it and raise some money for setting up some mobile and a computer shop.

    I'll buy second hand Computer because people ask me do I sell computers and not just any Computer. They ask about Quad core,Core i3, i5 and i7 series. For the mean time, I'll buy One and see how it sell. I will also buy headphones, game controllers, HDMI cables,optical mouse, pendrives, tablet cases, power banks,android charging cables,card readers etc. Buying and selling this stuffs will give me different dimension and options to my importation business. People loves to buy this items and the interest that comes with it is very good. It will help me enhance my mobile Phone business and it will also give customers different options to buy. Lastly, I'll like to give great Thanks to God,Lenders,Zidisha, My Family and my customers for supporting me throughout the good,the bad and the ugly. I Thank you all and wish God returns all you've done for me with his Grace, Blessings, Riches and most of all shine his face upon you and all your families. Amen

    Thanks to the Lenders and Zidisha, for giving me the opportunity to re-shape my career and learn something different from what I initially wanted to do. I learnt Electrical Engineering at school but now, I'm a business Man. I started selling mobile Phone and the help from Zidisha and the lenders I can now import phones,tablets, powerbanks,multimedia cables,watches,ear rings etc. I sell my goods online as well in a Big case and I have sold and bought a lot of my goods to people including Doctors, teachers etc. I can now say things are moving as planned and I owe all this to God, Zidisha, Lenders, My customers, Volunteer member Mr Bonsu and my family. I'll Make the full payment today and I can say to me, this is the best organization ever. Thanks
