About Me

From my childhood to my second cycle education , I was raised up by a step father. Following his deceased, I nearly quit my tertiary education except for the help of a brother who volunteered.
After tertiary education, realizing the poor employment condition in Ghana coupled with my ambition for entrepreneurship, I decided to put up my own business which I did. Though from the Ashanti region, yet thought Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region will be a more favorable ground for the business.
I really enjoy reading and music usually at my leisure time.

My Business

My business is into mobile money transaction, the sale of scratch cards, SIM cards as well as some healthy foodstuffs. It is located in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana.
As a start up entrepreneur with little capital, this business upon consideration was seen to be the appropriate one comparatively. Also, electronic cash system has almost become the other of the day in Ghana and was seen to be a good ground for starters.
With the help of the Zidisha team, my average income has increased dramatically( GHC 600- GHC900 monthly) and my services to customers has also improved. Profits are always reinvested and this has significantly increased my capital as well.

Loan Proposal

This loan will be used to set up my healthy food shop autonomously. All this while, my mobile money businesses and my healthy foods sales are all in one shop. But this loan will help me to acquire new shop as well as increasing the inventory for the healthy bfood shop. This will increase my daily sales( 50%), and enlarge my customer base as well. Hence my profit may increase to GHC 50.00 a day.
