About Me

I was born at Subin Hill a small mining and farming town close to Dunkwa -on-Offin in Ghana.I am an Artist who studied Mass Communications in Kenya and the United States of America. Now I am The Director for Lutheran Media Media Ministry Ghana.
On the side I do some farming and run transportation. I have a total of 8 acres of land for farming. I have coconut and pawpaw on the farm as well as seasonal cassava and corn.
Presently I urgently need money to clear a family car at the Tema Port to use as commercial transport to support the farm.

My Business

Commercial Transportation to support the farm. The farm is in the rural area of Nsawam which has a very bad road and a good vehicle is needed to help me and other farmers in the area to move their farm produce quickly to Nsawam and Accra markets before they go bad on the farms. Having such a vehicle will bring support to the farming area.

Project Proposal

Increasing the number of birds on my farm will potentially add value to the farm. It will also help me to reach the goal of getting a vehicle to transport myself and other farmers in my community to take their farm produce to the city on market days to sell their goods and make some money for their hard work.
Getting a vehicle for my farm would be very helpful for the farm and the community.

    To everyone who has helped to fund my project, I thank you so much.
    Blessings to all of you and I pray for your success in life.

    This contribution is going to help me work on my farm. I will buy some
    fencing net as well as do some clearing of the land and prepare some
    area for for coconut planting.

    Thanks to all of you again for your help and this helps me to continue
    hoping for my goal of improving my fowls and crops farm while aiming
    to buy a vehicle to serve the farming community.

      Thank you very much for your best wishes. I am praying for your success to especially as we are both looking for help from Zidisha for our farming.

    With my recent loan which I have just completed paying up, I was able to complete a good section of my chicken cage and a portion of the fencing I have been working on. The long draught some unpredictable chicken deseases caused me to lose a large numbers of my fowls but the problem is under control now and I am hoping to fully secure fencing my farm area to prevent them from going out to bring in deseases in the future.

    I have not given up on getting even a used van to help farmers in my village to transport their farm produce to the town on market days yet so I still need help with my request to help me improve on the farm and save towards getting the van.

    I am grateful that the loan for my project to fence my farm has been fully founded. I am going to use this money to continue fencing my farm to make it more secured for my fowls. To get to my dream goal of purchasing a vehicle to help me and my neighboring farmers convey their farm produce to the main town on market days is far from being accomplished with the founds now but from the way things have gone so far with Zidisha for me is very hopeful that I will get there.

    I thank all of you good people who have helped to found my project so far and I am praying that you stay healthy and strong to be able to continue doing the good works you do to support the needy at Zidisha.

    It has been a hard time for farming because of the lack of rain in the past few months but because of the help I got from Zidisha on the farm I have been able to manage and as the rains are showing signs of hope I am hoping that things will get better on my farm soon.

    I did lose some birds on the farm but all is not lost as I am hoping to complete fencing the farm with this new loan and increase my birds as well. While trying to purchase a vehicle for the farm as planned I am going to plant some coconuts along the edge of my farm to improve on the quality of my farm.

    This is to thank all of you who helped to fund my project request. I am very grateful to all of you and want you to know that this is going to help me complete fencing my farm to protect my free-range chicken.

    I am hoping this will help me to raise enough funds in the future to buy a farm vehicle to help other farmers in the community to transport their farm produce to the market on market days.

    Thanks again to all of you and stay blessed.

    I do not see the option to invite a friend anymore. So how do I invite a friend?

    The loan I have just completed helped me to improve on the fencing of my chicken farm. I still have more spaces to cover to help secure the safety of my chicken. More help is needed to completely secure the areas for the birds and add more birds to increase the value of the farm and make it potentially viable.

    I have three names here, Ramuald, Namaste, and Laurie who have contributed funds and helpful encouragement to complete the funding of my chicken fence project.
    It is with a thankful heart that I send this message to encourage all of you in your efforts to help someone in need of your help be it financial in my case or health for Ramuald and Laurie. It is good that we continue to support and pray for each other. God has a way of dealing with each of us to be helpful to others.
    I also contribute to Pay-it-forward to help others and enjoy being helpful to them.

    May the Lord help and bless each of you as you continue to contribute to Zidisha.

    Dear Romuald, thank you for your support. Being sick and still moved to help others in need is the move of God. I am praying for you to get well and also hoping to get my project funded on time for you to hear the success of my project. Thanks again.

    The loan I took and just completed paying was very helpful in completing the fencing of a section of my chicken farm place. The loan I am requesting now will help to further protect the chicken from predators. Hopefully, the sponsors will respond early enough to help me overcome this problem.
