About Me

My name is Hakeem Obeng and a young Ghanaian Entrepreneur . I live in Tema in The greater Accra region of Ghana with my parents. I am not married. I had formal education to the level of senior high school at the Nyankomasi Ahenkoro senior high school in the central region where I studied business as a course.
I am the second among four boys as in the children born to my parents and I am very hardworking.
Right after high school I had the opportunity to study how to give prescription drugs from a family relative who owned a drug store Abura Taati in the central region. I spent three years learning this trade and after my studies just last year I came back to my community to start my very small drug store.

My Business

I provide first aid healthcare drugs to the people of my community. the simple malaria treatment drugs, pain killers for both the young and the old. Antibiotics too and some other locally manufactured herbal medicines.
I am the only one operating this kind of business in my area and we can count up to only four drug stores in the whole large community with it large numbers.
I choose this business because I like to help people health whiles. Then also due to the nature of the demand conditions and the profit expectations since I had previously worked in one before. Although my business is small I still save a portion of whatever that comes in and I put back the rest of the revenue into my business...

Loan Proposal

Much of What i will be receiving will go into the treatment of malaria for both adults and children. Hence $150.00 for anti malaria drugs, $20 for mosquito nets. The anti malaria drugs do include tablets for adults and syrup for children. Then some $60 for pain relievers(pain killers) for both adults and children.
This investment will bring the needed confidence in my shop since i will be having much of the drugs mostly demanded in my area.
I will therefore be helping with the health needs of my people and thus saving lives in my own small way while making a living too for myself.
