About Me

I am the second born of the five children of my parent. I am a teacher,I worked for four year as acting headteacher and later gained an admission to further my education at the University of Education Winneba . I am currently in my final year.
My hobbies are; reading news from online, playing computer games , watching football match and making friends all over the world.

My Business

Orange Farming
I started orange farming after my College Education. Farming is something I have interest in right from childhood. I opted for it simply becauase my parents main occupation is farming and for that matter has a large pieces of farm land. So aquisition of land was not a problem. I have been continously planting oranges for the past 5 years and I am now having about 8 acre land of orange plants. Those ones I planted in my first year has started bearing fruits and is amazing how people troop in to buy it. I am currently having five(5) permanent workers and employ 5 casual workers during harvest time.The need has arisen to make expansion of the farm since there are still land to work on . I am therefore pleading to Zidisha Lenders to support me make my dream be a reality.

Because people patronize the product very well, I am able to make profit and can pay the loan from the profits. Aside this, I am a teacher and for that matter,I receive a monthly salary with which I can service the loans I am given. I therefore assure the lenders and the organization as a whole of my commitment to repaying every loan I will be granted.
Thank you.

Loan Proposal

I will need this loan to help me pay the remaining parts of the items I bought the the first loan which I could not make full settlement. I intend to pay of the debit of my customers as they have been very patient with me. As I indicated in my previous application, quite a good amount of about 500 dollars was needed to purchase the fire prevention emergency equipment. I was able to secure a little over half to purchase some and the others on credit. I therefore apply to get this loan and settle anyone I owe.
