About Me

My name is Tweneboah Josephine from Berekum in Ghana.I started schooling at Japekrom St James preparatory school.I also attended Berekum senior high.I begun my business career right after my secondary education.I am currently staying at Berekum.Indeed life at beginning of my youthful age wasn't easy.I used to go to shop with my mother where I learnt a lot from her.I saw it necessary to get more knowledge especially on how to type using computer and how to use the computer for many purposes. So I decided to have a part time computer classes where I learnt how to use the computer.
My interest in gospel music,let the presiding elder of our Church placed me in charge of the youth singers called Amazing Singers .I am still in charge of the leadership of the youth singers in the church. (Apostolic Faith Mission International-Berekum.)

My Business

I am into buying and selling of many goods.I started operating this shop when my father was transferred to another town where my mother has to accompany him.So she sold almost 2/3 of the goods in order to get money on her as they go to new town.So I planned not to collapse the shop.I contacted a Friend who had enough stock in her shop to supply me with some goods and do payment after sales in two weeks time. She did exactly that and I started from there till am able to pay for goods I buy from her.Now am able to buy goods for my shop and pay for it. Some of these goods include rice of different kinds,tin tomatoes, sardines and different types of cooking oil. My shop is situated at a very vantage point in the town therefore people reach the shop without stress.Now my business has expanded since I met noble family of Zidisha.

Loan Proposal

I like to thank all lenders in the first place for the previous loan. I pray for God's protection,increase in wealth and good health for you all.
I am planning of using the loan to purchase the following for my shop if funded.This will increase my stock in the shop and the more I have goods the more customers I get hence more profit.
I will purchase 8 bags of different varieties of rice with the Price of 332 dollars, Ten bottles of 5 litre of sunflower and frytol oil also with the price of 177 dollars, twelve packs of tomato paste costing 186 dollars. I will also be buying 66 dollars of spaghetti packs,7 boxes of Milo Tin with cost of 221 dollars. Then again I will use 155 dollars for the purchase of 10 boxes of medium tin of ideal milk and finally 77 dollars for the purchase of 5 boxes of sardines.
With this,am projecting of getting a profit of 130 dollars a week which I believe can be possible.
I present to all my lenders this project which,if funded will help me a lot especially in family.Taking good care of my children may not be a problem. Hoping to hear from my lenders. Thank you.
