Evans Ansu Amponsah is a business-minded young man very hardworking, honest and a graduate from the university of Ghana. I am from a small village in the Asunafo South district of Ghana called Kukuom. I am the seventh but unluckiest born of my parents out of ten siblings. This is because i was born with a disability condition. All my siblings leave together in one compound house with me and our parents. Though I enjoy most outdoor games which includes football, basket ball and several others, I cannot play due to my physically challenged condition. Yes! there are times in my life I thought of given up. My parents were not considering me as existing. I remember some time ago when I overheard my mother telling someone that she has nine and a half children. I knew from that day that I am a half rated human in my family. Sadly, this is because of my disability condition. I therefore took it upon my self to work very hard to ensure a better future. My parents didn't spend much on my education. To them, I could never be an advantage. A Catholic church in my village helped me throughout my education. After completion, I decided to start something on my own. At least to feed on. I run a stationary and printing shop in my village. Over the years, it has been the source of income for me. I am hopping to help others through my job.
Right from childhood, I realised that I am responsible for my own well being, survival and a successful life since my parents never showed readness for moral and financiaI support. To them, I was just a disadvantage sickler with nothing to hope for. All these negative thought about my personality didnt discourage me at all. I read so many books to motivate me. Since help was not comming my way, I decided to begin my own business. Since that time, I have been in business for the past two years up till now. I had a massive growth and positive turn of my business and life when Zidisha lend me a first helping hand loan to purchase a Lesser HP Printer and furnitures respectively which I paid up successfully. Many client from far distances visits my shop for printing. Recently, due the work load on a single desktop computer available in my shop, many jobs that should have been done in my shop are transferred to another shop. But thanks to Zidisha and kind lenders like you, I was able to raised a loan to buy one extra computer and again repaired my old computer as well. This has actually moved my business to the next positive level. With your help, I am able to provide more services to clients which in effect increase my profit with which I was able to pay up the loan on time with good payment record. I didn't enjoy this profit alone. I paid my tithe regularly at church and provided support to my family members as well. With the support from zidisha, I hope to expand my business to be able to employ several jobless university graduates and the youths in my village. It has been my dream to support others. This I want to do by opening a rental business to employ workers.
I have arranged to open a new shop for my brother who just completed university. Since my line of business is good, I have acquired a plot of land in a nearby town to setup a new business. This in effect, will boost my net income whereas repaying this loan will be simple and regular as usual. Thank you
