My name is Carl Yawson Ishmael from Kadjebi in the Oti Region of Ghana. I am a young graduate of KASEC, where I studied Agriculture. Before graduating from School, my mother died and as the elder son I had to take care of the myself and my younger ones, so I put on hold my education and went in to farming to earn some money to feed the family as well. I'm now married with 2 children.
I am a professional farmer and also rear animals. I have Cassava farms, Yam farms, maize farms and among others. I have been farming since 2014 after graduating from SHS. I have 2 workers who works on my farm as my employee. I also have people who work for me on part-time basis. I have It is my strong desire and dream to produce food in large quantities and export to the world in the future so I am highly focused.
I need the loan to buy more Weedicides and Fertilisers for my Yam Farm. This will help me increase my productivity.
I will use the sales I make from the sales of maize and Cassava to repay the loan. Because I provide essential service, the COVID-19 has not really affected my business as such because people still buy every day.
