About Me

My name is Akuoko Priscilla,I come from Dormaa Ahenkro in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. My father's name is Akuoko Richmond. I was born on 15th February 1985. I attended Primary and Secondary School at Dormaa. I was raped and became pregnant so i could not further my education to the higher level. After birth , My father gave me $300 to start trading.

My Business

I deal in African beeds and some traditional clothes. I choose this business because people living in my area especially women buy s lot of different kinds of beeds and cloth themselves in African designs . I sell to more people and the profit I get is normal for me.I earn $22 to $25 a week.I use my profit to take care of my son and pay my taxes and reinvest the rest in my business.My business is fast growing these days and for that matter I am very happy , all is because of Zidisha's help. I thank them so much.

Loan Proposal

My business is gradually growing and I have no regrets in joining Zidisha. I will buy some new fabrics with GH 200, and also use the remaining GH¢116 to buy some African beads to sell to my customers.
