About Me

I am Gloria Agbadi, a 23 year old Ghanaian, Biomedical Engineering graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Ghana. I had my primary and junior high school education at St Mary's International School and Better Best Academy respectively after which I studied General Science at Achimota Senior High school.
I have a peculiar interest in fashion and colours which found me searching for new jewellery designs in my leisure periods. Bead making in a ind
igenous activity in Ghana and beaded accessories are an irreplaceable item in our cultural dressing.
Growing up in a country like mine where graduate unemployment is on the rise, I decided to turn my interest in bead making into an employment opportunity for myself and others.
After 3 years of bead making I developed an interest in fine jewelry and now learning and developing new skills in the field.

My Business

Fashion is a fast growning industry all around the world . It is a very promising one with very high demands since clothing is a basic human need. I want to promote African fashion especially beaded accessories. Through my Zidisha loans, I have been able to fund my business advertisements on social media and widen my customer base by 250%. My goal is to expand my business to a world class beaded accessory and jewellery production company. The profit I make is reinvested into buying more raw materials and equipment to increase production.

Loan Proposal

My venture has been able to gain publicity to an extent on the social media. Most of my customers make purchases on social platforms and my mobile phone is the main tool for interacting... However I have lost touch with most customers since my phone has developed a fault... I need this loan to buy a new phone to interact with customers.
Mobile phone costs $20 and $ 10 is needed to buy a new set working tools for faster production... This will help increase profit buy 150%.
