About The Project

$650 needed to purchase a generator, electric saw, cutting machine

$150 total amount friends/family investing

 
With a $100 investment Francis was able to increase his sales by $250 in only one month.  He is waiting for the lock down to end and knows that then he can continue to grow his business.

After 4 years as a sales and promotional manager at the Gbehzohn Aluminum Business Center learning about the best designs of the latest windows, doors, partitions, glass tables, Francis decided he would like to open his own aluminum business. He will buy a 3.5 KVA generator which is needed for an electric saw to cut aluminum into exact measurements, partitions etc. to size. In his aluminum business he fixes, repairs and does installation of all aluminum materials. His dream is to become a wholesaler for all aluminum materials. In addition to his aluminum businesses he wants to plant food crops cassava, eddoes, potatoes and later oil palm on 10 acres of land. He received an Associate of Science degree in general Agriculture.

..Francis says I ”am talented in designing various kinds of aluminum materials”



Paying it Forward

Francis has been sharing his earning with several families who also live in Buchanan and one outside of Buchanan.  One is a fish vendor he knows.  He wants to expand his business and both train young people and create more jobs in his community.
