My name is Christabel and i come a village in Ghana. I am the third of of the ten children of my parents. My parents are subsistence farmers and the live in poverty because the depend solely on the farm produce to look after the family. I completed junior high school at presby jhs. Although i passed all my exams, the money to send me to high school was not there but through prayers and perseverance i got help from my church members who contributed money towards the payment of my admission fees at the senior high school. By the grace of God and hardwork i came out successful and got good at the west Africa senior high school certificate exams. I started hawking mobile phone cards and sales of second hand phones. I saved the profit and i am now at the university. To complete my university education and help advance my country's development is something of critical essence to me and i tried hard to avoid any obstacle on my way in achieving this vision but the payment ofuniversity fees has being my greatest problem ever since i was admitted. I struggle hard in my small way to procure money to settle heavy bills in school as i have to sacrifice my lectures in search of job so that i can offset my tuition fees.
I sell credit cards and slightly used mobile phones to colleagues and people who are in need of phones at affordable prices to raise money for my school expenses. I decided to do this business after realizing it is one of the booming business at the place I found myself. I need the loan to pay/offset my tuition fees so that i will have sound mind to study and be counted among the best students on campus.
payment of the tuition fees will afford me the chance to get access to the many facilities in the school.I believe in giving back to my community by helping others in financial crisis, so they would not suffer the same fate that i got growing up.
I will buy more credit cards and mobile phones with the loan and this will help me to get enough revenue to take care of my business and expand it bigger. I need about 400 dollars to procure these materials.
My earning will quadripple when am offered the loan.
