About Me

My name is Douglas Asiwome-Senahia
I’m the last to a family of eleven four girls and seven boys, not being selfish, I had the policy of meeting other peoples need,and seeing another person satisfied was my happiness. But also,I knew all this would not come to bare without one having a solid foundation for him/herself or being firmly rooted educationally, morally and financially. But of course if I had a well built foundation as wished, my future would have been a dream come true, yet i have my hopes surely high whiles the grace of God is ever sufficient.
I am currently working and looking forward to a fulfilling future, where I can say my dream of satisfying other people’s needs is taking place.

My Business

I`m the marketing coordinator in the Central/Western and Greater Accra region for SAGE LITERARY HOUSE (A book publishing company) apart from just the sale of books, I also host and fund a reading/ writing and illustration competition for my client schools in all the regions I operate. The competition named Sage Literary Talent is designed to inculcate a good reading habit in school children and that is as part of our ongoing effort to championing a reading revolution in our dear nation Ghana.
Having this as stake, I deem it necessary to invest more money into running the competition to foster the program to a successful patronage and to the benefit of all.

Project Proposal

I hope to use the funds to purchase books and sell to students within the schools in my community at an affordable price, to enable them assess to good and quality education. By they first improving upon their reading skills, which stands as the backbone for continuous learning.

    I will like to say a big thanks to my backers for their kindness in supporting me raise the money I requested for. This was really helpful in order to help boast my credit limit. As it were, the actual amount needed to fund my project is quite higher than what my credit limit can enable to me to acquire and so, the only best remedy is to build good credentials and prove my legibility in my repayment of the loan I acquire until my credit limit is enough to execute my project.
    I'm really grateful for being there for me and as being here requires, I am willing to help raise funds for others as far as I can meet the targets o their needs. Thank you!

    Hello Lenders i was able to reach Mr Douglas today and he told me he'd been facing problems with his account and he has contacted zidisha several times through email to rectify the issue. He has been waiting for a reply thats why he has held up on repayments. Thank you.

          Hello Mr. Isaac Baccah, i thank you for your encouragement, meanwhile i`m baffled with some few irregularities concerning the loan i took, and i thought you could help or bear me witness to. i took a loan of GHS 1293.00 but according to my repayment table, i am to pay 1536.00. Secondly, i had paid from 5th january to 14th march but the table reviles that i had not paid for on the 7th march and 14th march. so i sent to the service a notice for a proper check on the table, hope they get back to me favorably and then we shall take it from there, thank you.
