About Me

I am Linda Rebecca Siraa from Dormaa Ahenkro in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I am a woman of 50 years old, dark in complexion and about 1.3 meters tall. I got the opportunity to be educated at the basic level before I finally settle my mind to be a trader. In fact I have been in my current job for eleven years now. God has blessed me with 4 children, two boys and two girls who are all currently in school. I am someone who always does whatever I set my eyes on with all my strength.

My Business

As already said, I am a business woman who has been in my business for 11 years now. I am a trader who sells or deal in plastic product and other utensil that are used in our various homes. Years back when I started this business, it was not easy for me, because the initial capital for starting the business was too small and can purchase just few items. I did not lose hope but continue with it. As at now you will be amazed at how my business has expanded and stands different among my competitors. Everything that you need as far as plastic product are concern for home use is available, this enable me to win many customers into my store.
All the items sold at my store are what you cannot do away with, you definitely need them in the house either for cooking, water storage, serving food, cleaning your house and the rest. Some of the product I have in my store include; water containers, dustbin, cutlery sets plates, bowls, scrubbing brush, cups, cooking utensils, etc. Due to the frequent coming of the customers I have employed one store attendant to assist me serve customers better. There is still more that I can do to enhance my business that is why I have join Zidisha so that Lenders will help me with affordable loan which I cannot get anywhere in Ghana to expand my business.

Repayment of loan
I earn much from this business and I am going to pay back my loan from the profit I acquire from the sale of my products. I am ready to go but the terms and condition of loan repayment

Loan Proposal

The loan will be used to purchase more containers for water storage, currently I have run out of it due to the high demand for it. I supply this water containers to nearby villages and they buy them to store clean water for drinking. Also part of it is going to be use to purchase cutlery sets which is very demanded by student. I believe this is going to raise my income that is generated everyday in other to look after my children and some few dependents. I have been helping two brilliant but needy student who are currently in Junior High School. I am therefore pleading with every Lender to support me raise this amount. Thank you.
