About Me

I am Charles Owusu it was a great experience as a child living with 2 parents my mother was a trader and my father was a fire officer. So I had the feeling of being an entrepreneur and being an employee. At early age it was my dream to start my own business since my father was always not at so I knew there was a a lot freedom being self employed. This inspired me to pick up business as a course of study at Kumasi Anglican Senior High school,After my basic education at unity prepatory school and sweet home Academy in mampong ashanti and Kasoa in the Central region respectively all in Ghana. After graduating at koforidua polytechnic with High National Diploma in Accountancy the scarcity of job motivated me to start a business business venture in order to earn a living and also help solve the unemployment situation in my country. Ghana has diverse cultures with great people and food. The people are largely hospitable they all feel great being a Ghanaian.

My Business

Okrakyi trends is a fashion firm which produces and sell Africa oriented designs and outfits to interested clients. It is a a tailor made outfits which is done to satisfy the clients' utmost specifications. Since most of our marketing is done through the social media we always assured of reaching the fair scope of our target market hence consistent turnover. Our weakly income is around gh¢800. And zidisha has played an active role in this achievement.

Loan Proposal

Zidisha has been a dependable partner since the initial stage of my fashion business. Through their affordable credit I have been able to buy a knitting machine, rent a space for my fashion business, buy 2 industrial sewing machine and I have been able to purchase a stock of fabric to meet the demands of my clients. Now there's an increasing demand from my clients for shoes to complement the designs I make for them. I have negotiated with a local shoe maker who has agreed to make nice quality shoes to meet meet my specifications. And all he demand is an initial down payment. That makes it necessary to come to zidisha to access and affordable capital to start this lucrative business. I hope you are going to grant me this loan for the smooth start of this new business. Thank you zidisha.
