About Me

I am Samuel Atta Boakye, born and live in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I live at Belin Top a suburb of Sunyani. I am 35 years old, dark in complexion, moderately built and about 5.5 feet tall. I am a married man with three children, two boys and a girl. I had an opportunity to complete my Senior High School education at Sunyani Senior High School. I went on to pursue Diploma in Education at Saint Joseph College of Education at Bechem in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. I have been in active teaching for about 10 years now. I am currently teaching at Methodist JHS Fiapere. My hobbies are watching soccer and playing with children.

My Business

Taken care of needy students

I am a professional teacher who has been in the teaching service for the past 10 years. I am currently teaching at Methodist JHS Fiapre, a town very close to Sunyani the regional capital of the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. During these years of teaching, I have been providing assistance to needy student in the school. I am doing this because I can see some of the children are really struggling in terms of paying their school fees, getting of school uniform and food to eat when in school. I feel bad when I see children been chased out of class to go for their school fees because their parent are failing to do so. I have taken it upon myself to look after 2 students, a boy and a girl, who are currently in JHS 2 and JHS1 respectively. These 2 children lost their parent in a fatal accident and need to be assisted since the family is not giving them the needed attention. As a teacher I have been earning $270 monthly and aside that I have some other business to operate after school. I use some of my income to cater for them. I hope Zidisha will help me to take good care of these children by giving me loan to support them.

Loan Repayment
I am going to use part of my monthly salary to pay the loan. I will not fail in any way to pay back when you grant me this loan.

Loan Proposal

We are in vacation and school is going to be reopen soon. I an going to use the amount requested to buy for my two student books and school bag. I want to buy it before school reopen. I will plead with all Lenders to support me once again. Thanks for your support.
