My name is Richard Boateng; I come from Berekum, which is in the Brong-Ahafo Region of Ghana.
I started my primary education in Kumasi, the second capital city of Ghana. (Accra is the first capital city of Ghana.) From Kumasi, I moved back to the Brong-Ahafo Region and had my secondary education at Dormaa Senior High School. After graduating from high school, I went to Sunyani Polytechnic and earned a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Marketing.
Currently, in 2014 as I write this, I am pursuing a BSc Degree in Marketing at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana. I am a part-time student, attending on weekends only.
I like playing basketball, traveling, and reading.
I have a full-time job (detailed below).
I work full-time for DKT International, Ghana, which is a social-marketing NGO company. The organization provides education about, and low-cost access to, family-planning (contraceptive) and maternal products, at a subsidized rate from donor partners.
My job is working as a DKT Community Representative for the Brong-Ahafo Region.
The Brong-Ahafo Region is one of the largest of the ten regions of Ghana.
Currently, in 2014, it has a population of about 2 million.
One part of my job includes going out into the field and talking to people and educating about STIs/STDs, HIV-AIDS, sexual-reproductive health, and family planning.
Another part of my job is to sell DKT family-planning products within the Brong-Ahafo Region. (DKT manufactures the "Lydia" line of contraceptives, among others.)
DKT products are very effective, and because of mass advertising, many people now want (and need!) the products. However, due to a lack of funds, I cannot yet fully serve the entire Brong-Ahafo Region, which has been assigned to me. I only can take care of a small portion of it, so far.
Happy New Year to all lenders, and I warmly welcome you into 2015!
With the help of loyal lenders, my business has increased tremendously. I now need another loan, as my business is moving very well, as never before. That's why I was able to pay the first two loans on time.
I need a new loan to buy more family-planning and maternal products, to cover a much wider area in the region I have been assigned. The market is already available and customers are increasing, day in and day out.
If the loan is funded, I could and would repay on time, to aid me in getting higher loans later, to expand the regional sales even further.
The business is booming and I would be able to repay according to the dates due, on a weekly basis.
Thank you for reading, and for contributing to such a great cause.
