Joseph
Joseph K. N. is forty-three years old, married and a father with five children, who are currently all in school. He is a very hard working young man and artisan who designs and manufactures baking bowls for bread and trunks to store goods, etc. Joseph has been in this business for the past 20 years in the community market of Babiani, where he lives with his family.



Coal pots are used in many Ghanaians' homes as cooking burners are expensive to buy. Trunks are mostly purchased by parents who have their wards in the boarding house because it is safe and secure to keep your goods in them. Joseph said business is doing very well due to the strategic location he founds himself in the market but he is refusing to be complacent. Joseph is worried about the frequent increases in the price of raw materials retarding his business progress. However, he is convinced that with the loan he can buy stock of materials like steel, paints, rods, metals and others to increase his inventory. He believes this would help him even in the face of high prices in the cost of raw materials.



Joseph is pleading for your assistance to realize his dream for giving his children a better education for their future prospects. He also believes the loan would help him to buy machines for the cutting of the metals, to ease the stress he goes through. His picture was taken when he was selling one of his trunks made for his customer.
