I am Gyan Stephen, a young Ghanaian who started my basic education at Berekum Grace primary school. I then continued to Berekum Senior High School and completed in 2009. I am the eldest of four with two of my junior brothers currently at the Senior High School. I have graduated from the Professional Institute where I studied professional courses in customer services and sales and marketing at Accra. After my graduation, I decided to set up a water production and distribution company with my uncle who offered Chemistry at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi. I started this company to generate a little income to help my mother take care of the younger ones. She is truly a hard working woman and I thank her for whatever she has done for me but I feel it is time for me to fend for myself. My people are kind and care for each other. I like watching football and also reading books.
At the company, we manufacture filtered water and sell to customers around and far from the area. We have wholesale and retails. The water we manufacture is really needed for healthy growth. The demand for the water is very high because people require water each day. It is essential to the body and helps the body carry out so many life processes. I chose to do this type of business with my uncle because I realized that my community lacks clean source of water. There are so many water wash diseases in the community since the access to water is not enough. Also I chose this business to raise some funds to help my family and some needy ones in the community and the whole region as well. We don't spend much each month since this is a start-up company. Apart from the heavy machines we use, each month, we spend about close to $400. Right now, we are doing reinvestment so we don't save all the money. We generate profit though. We have decided to reinvest the profit we get from the expansion of the company when the loan is given to us. Thank you.
I would buy laptop to facilitate my studies, rent rooms, use some for transportation and pay for my fees. After paying for all these my family will now be very pleased because my young brothers would now get enough money to pay for their fees and buy books and other academics user items. I would also be glad and have a sound mind to study and pass my exams.
