About Me

I completed A-level education in Ghana and went into shoe making business. I grew up from an old village in Nzema and was very helpful to my parents in farming activities until I moved to the city to learn trading from my uncle who was a show maker.
I am married with four children and. My favourite hobby is football.

My Business

I make shoes and repair them to raise money. I make shoes and sandals at wholesale for retailers to buy. This business is very encouraging as each and every day people purchase all kinds of footwear to to help in their daily activities. I love this job because it's all I have been doing for the past 20years of my life. I have dream of establishing my own shoe factory and I know Zidisha would be very helpful. I always use the profit I gain for various expenses and also use some of the money for reimbursement.

Project Proposal

I am applying for this loan to help me repair one of my shoe making machines. This would help me to expedite my services to clients as expected. I would use the profits for expenses and use the rest to run the business.
