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

It has been a hard time for farming because of the lack of rains 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 the quality of my farm.

Now that it is raining again I need to do some corn planting to help feed the chicken while improving on their fencing. The funds will help me to get the needed work done at the right time to improve life on the farm and hopefully my goal to get a van for the farm can be achieved soon.
