About Me

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).

My Business

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.

Loan Proposal

Many people have been calling me for products in the region, but because of a lack of funds, I haven't been able to serve my region well. This is why I need another loan,
to better serve the region.

If this loan is funded, I can fully assure and guarantee that I could and would repay it.

Thank you, once again, for your consideration.
