About Me

My name is Martin Asante and I am 43 years old. I live in Ghana with my wife and children, i belong to a Christian family of four, two men and two women, and i am the last born. I completed senior secondary school and decided to face life early and never be poor in life. I am currently working with the Johns Hopkins University center for communications program as an NGO project driver, I don't want to put my eggs inside one basket so i decided to do a personal transport business because NGO work is not permanent at times it ends whiles there is no job vacancy so i decided to do private transport business attached so that i can be in employment all the time. Transport business in Ghana is very lucrative that is why i have passion in it so that i can take care of my children education and give them a better future.

My Business

I do private transport business in Ghana, co- operate people love to patronize it because of comfort, and privacy as compare to the commercial type of transport. There is high demand for it especially when there are activities in town through that i make money and make profit. I used some of my profit to put my vehicle in good working condition so that it can be working all the time and also save some. Recently the Engine became weak and the gearbox and the back axle were malfunctioning so all effort to get a loan to fix it became futile so i started checking on the internet whether i can get an online loan before i got in touch with zidisha.I believe with the assurance and condition zidisha has put in place with prompt or timely repayment of my loans my business will reach far. I have chain of businesses in mind, eg expanding my wife's provision store, Mobile Money business and selling scratch cards as well. I believe doing business with zidisha my dream will come true, i also thank the management, Directors and Lenders all over the world for extending a helping hands to help the less privilege people like me.

Loan Proposal

I want to replace four new set of tyres and replace also back and front shocks for my vehicle I am using to do a private transport business.

Income Source

Apart from the private transport business, I am also fully employed staff with an NGO as a project driver so I can use some of my salary to pay off the loan.

    Dear Zidisha Team,
    Please created a loan proposal yesterday waiting for approval. I got a mail informing that the ID card I used was an Ecowas ID therefore I should use the one I used to create my account which ends with 9277.
    I just want to inform you that all the information I provided was accurate, the ID I used was the same ID I have been using to apply for my loan. Is the same ID I used to create my zidisha account, how come the same ID I have been using is now not valid?. I think there is a problem somewhere not my end. Please check and give me feedback. Thank you.

    Jesus taught, “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a little thing is unrighteous also in much. If therefore you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous riches, who will entrust the true riches to you?” (Luke 16:11).

    First of all I will like to thank zidisha and it's Lenders for their remarkable help they are rendering to entrepreneurs. I put in a loan request and was approved, I just finished paying but I was late 5 days because in all my loan proposals I was telling the lenders that I wanted to buy engine and gearbox and back axle to replace my multinational one. As I am putting in this new proposal I was able to gather some money through what I received from zidisha and I added some from what I earned as a monthly salary from my NGO office and bought a new engine and gearbox. I am now left with the back axle, but I can be working with it and raise some money to buy it later. I am adding a photo of my self and my children sleeping in my car. My last repayment delayed because I was stretched a little bit financially, this is my first time and I promise it will not happen again. Thanks so much my Lenders and the entire zidisha team.
