About Me

I am Joseph Saaquah, 29 years of age. I am the last from 3 children of my parent,My family could have been a lovely one, but sadly I never got the opportunity to set eyes on my dad. I took it calmly growing up because no matter what happens, life must go on. Have always been a respectful, obedient, just, and hardworking person. Have completed senior high school at Gomoa Secondary High Technical School in the central region of Ghana, though it wasn't easy financially due to my mum being a single parent with 3 kids. Life hasn't been easy, but I've never given up because I'm determined to be educated. Sometimes I have to drop from school, though, to help mum in selling to get money for my fees and my chop money (money for daily provision of food is called "chop money" in Ghana). Through zidisha loan,i have been able to attend an IT school to gain myself a diploma in IT system admin certificate. am currently working but i dont want this certificate to be the end of my IT education but the beginning . I really want to continue my IT education,though it expensive but i wont let finances prevent me. am ready to work hard and go the extra mile to go higher in the IT field. I challenge myself not to give up because everything is possible in life. since Zidisha is with me, I can boldly say that my dreams will surely come to reality.
I live in a peaceful environment with lovely people. I love listening to music and singing along.

My Business

Hello dear Lenders,first of all i would like to thank and appreciate you all for always supporting my loan application.
through the help of Zidisha,i have a certificate in IT and working in a company as an IT personnel, it really helping me a lot,all thanks to you for the support.
i use some of the money i earn to take care of my personal needs like paying my house rent,paying my bills,feeding myself on daily bases,paying some of siblings fees if there is the need and helping others who are in bad time or needs financial help urgently.

Loan Proposal

With this loan, I would be importing Samsung powerbanks.

The energy sector in Ghana is very weak, and power shortages are common.
Since people highly depend on their smartphones and/or tablets for business
and for other purposes, too, having a portable powerbank would be very helpful
in keeping their devices on, which is very important.

The powerbanks would cost me $30 per piece, plus I also would be paying
a shipping fee of $50.

I would buy 10 pieces.
My total cost would be:
$30×10=$300+$50=$350.

I would be selling for $50 per piece.
So, my profit would be:
$50×10=$500-$350=$150.
