About Me

Ali Effah is my name, I live in Techiman and was born in Techiman, am dark in complexion, round face with a pointed nose, am 5.5 meters tall. I attended L\A primary school and forwarded to the junior high level , I then wrote my BECE and had grade 12 then I was admitted to Akumfi Ameyaw senior high school where I offered general arts as a course and life wasn't easy for me over there because my father passed away when I was about to complete the junior high level so my mother alone will have to take care of me and my two sisters who were also in the junior high school, my mother will have to go out and hock pure water before she can get something to assist us in terms of finances.

My Business

am a health worker, a lab technician to be honest the people at my country really contribute to the business. I chose to do this business because is my desire to help people no about their health and to treat those with problems. I order for Hbvsa vaccine for 20 dollars and after using it for the benefit of my patients I get 45dollars and I also purchase for one box of the rapid test strip's for hepatitis and after using it for my patients I get 70 dollars. I use to pay some bills out of my income of items in my laboratory, I then invest the rest of my income for more profit in the future. I really respect my business which i dont play with it.
