Moreover, I started my elementary school at Freeman Methodist Junior High school and after successful completion to Berekum Senior High School. I furthered to University of Ghana Legon and by God grace completed successful and I am now self employed.

My Business

RETAIL RICE SELLING BUSINESS
Rice is the staple food of several peoples in Ghana and to be precise the people of Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Base on my research, I was able to study to know its consumers and their buying habits which finally got my attention to establish a retail rice selling business at Berekum. In fact I mean business and never joke with my business, always finding out from my customers the variety of rice they prefer in other to boost my business.
Moreover, I make it a point to always earn the trust of my customers; I do this by offering quality but affordable rice at all times to my customers and this has result in a tremendous growth of my rice selling business. I am open to my customers as a result of this all and sundry want to buy from me. There is still a height for me to reach and a vision to be accomplished; I thank God I am in the right place at the right time. I know with Zidisha my dreams will be materialized.
REPAYMENT OF LOAN
I can fully assure and guarantee, that, when am given the loan, I can and will pay. I will be able to repay the loan facility given to me from the daily sales I make from the sales of my rice.

Loan Proposal

Thank you Lenders for lending to me always. Your loan has been of great help to me. May God bless you so that you will be able to keep lending to me. To attract customers, they should see many choices of rice, and I intend to use this amount requested to order for more rice. I therefore take this opportunity to appeal to Zidisha Lenders to assist me to expand my business in other to meet the demands of my family and also helps support two of my junior siblings to pay for their school fees. Thank you.
