About Me

Kwabena Asante is my name, i was born on 25th January 1992 in Ghana, at Berekum in the Brong Ahafo region. I started my basic education at paradise international school and also attended Sunyani Senoir High School. Due to my excellent performances and hard work I passed the west African certificate examination with distinction. After my secondary education, I was able to secure a job as a house help due to my good behaviour as well as my friendliness with people in general. Through this job, I was able to gather some small amount of money. I used the little amount of money I had in addition to the little that my parents afforded to support my tertiary education. My parents could afford little because both are farmers. I leave at Atonotia a sub town of Berekum and the main occupation of the people are agriculture and petty trade.Due to the low standard of living and high illiterate rate, the people has less knowledge about health related issues, this therefore lead them to death caused by minor disease which could have easily been cured. Also since the nature of their business is of the type that brings small interest, it makes it very difficult for them to pay off their hospital bills after they have been discharged and it makes them sad. Consequently it hurt me also because it hurts me when peoples are sad. All my life i wanted to do something that will have positive impact on peoples live. In view that i went to college of health,Kintampo to offer physician assistance so that i can help the peoples in my community. After the health college I was posted to Berekum hospital to do my internship, With the little money accumulated during my internship I established my own pharmacy. my hobby is reading and swimming.

My Business

I am a physician assistance by profession and also owns a pharmacy. since my main aim in life was to have positive impact on people life and my zeal is to see people happy. I established my pharmacy to help reduce morbidity rate and mortality rate in the society. I normally open the pharmacy when I close from work. I sell medicines like paracetamol, lumartem, parafenac and other pain killers drugs to people in my society. most of the people are been afflicted by many disease of which i don't have much capita to buy such medicines. The main reason why I need this money is that my parent who have been supporting me in times of need are now old and can't work much to increase their product so that I can get support from them. Am now financially handicapped. The amount I have in my account is not enough to buy more medicine. And for what i know,the hands that helps in the development of other shall surely be blessed that is why I am putting in more effort to help myself and the people of my soceity. In fact after the establishment of my pharmacy, mobility rate has drastically reduce drastically because, I normally educate the people who comes to my pharmacy to buy medicine about the cause of their condition and also preventive measures. within a month I make a profit of about 100$ to 150$ which I reinvest in the pharmacy and also support the family.

Loan Proposal
