About Me

My name is mensah Eric from Volta region of Ghana from a village called jopadi. The name was given to the village because of abundance of banana in the area. I happen to stay with one my uncle who took me to school. So I had all my fundamental education at kpeve. If I had wanted to go to university she would have allowed me to go personally i lost interest in school. I am married now to Mrs mensah Joyce with no kids as at the moment.I am dark but slim in structure. Am a little bit tall too as well. My favorite food is gariba with stew

My Business

This interest of doing business has been my passion because I looked at myself as somebody who cannot work under anybody and be successful so I did kayayo in the market before in the market and when I carry their loads for them then they will dash me a gift which I will sell in the market to other people at a cheap price. Gradually I gathered money which I rented a store that I want to use for provision. The landlord said a month I will pay GHC 100 a month and in 2010 that money was not a small money but I told her I I will pay it monthly instead of yearly she demanded. Then I collected the store but now the money to buy provisions into the shop is not there. So I will now go to my customers and plead with them to borrow items like tomatoes box, sardine and other provisonns from other people . and as i put this together am able to sell and go collect another one . so that's the business I do for a living

Project Proposal

Some of my items at the shop has expired because they have been there for longtime and no body bought it and it has expired so I need to buy another one. I cannot buy all at ago so I want to buy them gradually to seek will pay from my profit
