About Me

I was born in the Ashanti region of Ghana at the Anglo Gold Ashanti hospital. I have been staying at Asokwa throughout my stay in this world. I started primary school at St Joseph D/A school. After I completed my junior high school education, I continue or further my education to the senior high school. After my senior high school education I moved strait in to Construction. l worked for sometime and later went back to the University . I leaved with my parent’s whiles I was schooling. My parents looked after me throughout my education periods. Life was not easy for me and the family as well. With God all things are possible so things started to turn around so life began to change for the better. My parents were into farming and business as well. So I learnt the business aspect of their life. My parents started with a small business by selling their farm product (e;g: Cassava,Yam,Tomatoes etc) . All the farm product improved to become a commercial ones which supported the family very well. The money generated from the farm products was used to cater for me and the rest of my siblings. After my university education, I decided to enter into business so I requested some small amount of money from my parents which served as a capital for me. I also involved myself into a construction and later moved into selling of safety equipment (PPE). From that time my life stared turning so I became a little okay in life. The money or profit gained from the selling protective equipment was used to feed my family and those needy ones in the community as well. I am hoping to get enough funds from you so that I can expand my business. With the trust I have developed in you, am 100% sure that you will help me with some amount to help me out.

My Business

    Hi Francis, I am hoping you will be able to make even small payments on your loan. You were doing so well for months, and I imagine something bad happened to keep you from paying in time. I wish you the best. Please communicate with your lenders so we know what is happening. Even if you pay back late, as long as you are making progress, then your lenders will have faith in you for future loans.
