About Me

My name is Amankona Linda. l come from Gulumpe in the Kintampo north district in the Brong ahafo region of Ghana west Africa.I'm a girl of 24yearsand the second born if four children I own a small provision store in my village. With the the help of my senior sister I started a hawking business and later lead to a small provision store. Thanks to Zidisha I have been improving on my shop with their loan. Gulumpe is an agricultural area with different tribes and different culture living harmoniously. I want my children to be well educated and be good citizen and philanthropists in future. I like reading a lot.I want to establish an orphanage in the near future and also help brilliant but needy students.And also I like listening to gospel musics

My Business

when I completed senior high school in 2009 and due to the lost of my parents job I couldn't continue my education. I started a hawking business (petty trading) With the help of my elder sister. through hard working I was able to raise some money to start small provision store.I sell maize flour,rice,canned tomatoes, sugar,drinks,spaghetti, diaper,Milo,teabags,toiletries. I sometimes use the profit to increase the stock of my shop and also help in paying my siblings school fees. I also intend to establish an orphanage in the near future.Also Zidisha lenders have helped me to add groundnut paste production to my shop.

Loan Proposal

Thank you Zidisha for always lending. I have used the old loan and it helped a lot.I will use the loan to buy a mini bag of sugar and a box of spaghetti for my shop.This will help me to give in to the demands of my customers who are always in need of spaghetti and sugar.since the demand for sugar and spaghetti are high it will help me to get more customers and hence improve my profit limit to about 15%.
