About Me

I am a trader, farmer and a social worker, working with Compassion for Humanity Foundation, an NGO helping my community and younger youths to learn a trade for their future. Currently, I have four children.

I sell foodstuffs and agro-chemicals and sell them only on market days in my village. I believe the support will help me to improve my small business and also earn more income. I live in Koforidua and run my project in a village called Adawso in Akuapem –North district. It is a small village with a population of 1,600. Tuesdays and Fridays are market days in my village, and farming employs 95% of the people. On these market days, all the farmers come to buy and sell their farm products. Selling agro–chemicals and other foodstuff sells faster and the earnings or profit is good: that is why I chose to trade in such a business.

Besides, I have also started a school for my community as well. Compassionate Kids School is the name of the school, where children within my community can have a better education for their future. For more information, www.compassion4humanity.com is my web site.

My Business

My business provides my village market with foodstuffs and ago-chemicals for the farmers. The demand for such goods is high and, every market day, goods almost get finished. This makes it more profitable. There are some risks the business faces, including the lack of capital to buy more goods. Every month it costs about $300 for goods. Sales revenue per month is also $450 and the profit in a month is $100, after paying off other expenses like transport. With this profit, when given the loan, I can pay even before the repayment date.

Also, I will use the loan to improve the school I run as well, so that later I pay back as we make some income.

Loan Proposal

The Loan will be used to help student I am supporting into trading of their choice. They need these tools to help them learn their trade faster and also able to work from home to help them earn some income.
The Loan will be used to by seeing Machine, hair dressing dryer, and other equipments needed.

Part of it will also go into supporting the school with books and other learning Materials to help improve teaching and learning. The Loan will help but text books and other learning Materials for the school.
Every week I expect to income $80 and could pay the loan as promised.
