Funding for the company will come from the contributions from the staff to join the company, investors, share holders/stake holders, promotions, and discounts on products for customers on large quantities of products purchased.

I am 20 years of age and just completed my BSc. degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering at the University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani-Ghana. I have the motivation that I can provide services to people in other forms such as craft works. Hence, in achieving my aim of service I intend to provide employment to persons who to one or some reasons have not had the opportunity to education to provide the strength of living. I believe in determination, perseverance, dedication and hard work and I hope to see this great idea materialise. In all I seek to enhance the economic growth of the nation to provide a sustainable development goal for the nation.
