Cynthia's Food Manufacturing and Packaging
My name is Cynthia Asare-Gyamfi and my objective is to prepare and process foods and sauces available from growers and suppliers in my region, and to package them in convenient containers and packages for retail and wholesale local sale initially. Examples of such foods include shito (black chili sauce) and dried fruits.

As my business grows I will expand into other communities in Ghana and to surrounding countries in West Africa. I am planning to have a high-quality e-commerce website that will promote my business and my products globally.
As my business grows I will employ people to help me in production, sales and administration.
My aim is to develop a unique brand that reflects quality, and a distinctive image of my region and culture.

My business will be in my hometown of Weija which is in the western part of the greater Accra region of Ghana, Africa.
My family has constructed a special facility for my business. I have included some photographs of this building. I am planning to use it as both a factory and as a retail outlet to sell my products.
This is a major achievement by my family and it is very special to me. I am going to work hard to honour their investment through commitment to my business. I want them to be proud of me and to share in my success.
My products will appeal to a wide demographic including children, students and adults who enjoy something different. I hope that my package designs will appeal to them, and show that I am serious about quality and a great consumer experience.
I have a degree in Communications Studies from the University for Development Studies in Ghana.
My family has already invested in the building for my business, but I will be paying rent from my business income.
I am now seeking funding to commence operations. In summary, these costs include:
- Government fees for business registration, and for brand registration and authorization. This totals approximately GHS2,000 or about USD500.
- Computers, furniture and administrative supplies, GHS3,000 or about USD700.
- Production equipment including industrial LPG cylinder, kitchen tools, work benches, oven, cream filler, vegetable grinder, grain miller, and packaging material, GHS31,500 or about USD7,000.
- Provision for operating costs for the first few weeks, GHS6,000 or about USD1,300.
This totals GHS42,500 or about USD9,500.
I will be most grateful for your support.
