About Me

My name is Isaac Baccah. I live in Accra, Ghana, and I am the secondborn of three siblings.

I managed to enter the University of Ghana despite financial hardship.
I had to wait a couple of years after completing high school for my parents
to raise money for tuition for me to be able to enroll in the I.T. program at the University.

My elder brother works a full-time administrative job at a school and also runs
a weekend side-business making and selling fruit juices. He has helped me when possible.

Due to increased hardships in their own lives, though, my parents and elder brother
have been unable to help me any further with my educational costs.

My Business

I graduated from the University of Ghana in 2018, with a degree in Information Technology, thanks in part to the kindness of the wonderful lenders at Zidisha. After performing my National Service for a year, I have been trying to acquire a good-paying job for the past two years but, although I have been working for a tech company, the job unfortunately doesn't pay the bills. It turns out that most good-paying jobs require certain certifications. The certifications I want to enroll in include the CCNA and Comptia Server+. Thank you so much for this platform and thank you to every one of the lenders at Zidisha.

Project Proposal

Greetings, dear lenders. Thank you so much for the patience and belief you had in me for my previous loan. I am here again humbly requesting another loan to help me acquire two certifications to assist me in obtaining a better-paying job. Thank you so much, once again, and may GOD continue to bless you all.

Note: The system wouldn't allow me to edit this last section,
so I asked a Community Moderator to do the editing for me.

I've also asked for the following additional information to appear:

After earning my I.T. degree, I've been further developing my I.T. skills where I'm working now, and I feel confident that after I soon acquire these new certifications, I would find a better-paying job and would be able to fully repay the loan according to the terms.

In the meantime, I would faithfully send in at least something every week, even if at first I might not be able to meet the entire installment amount. I assure you, though, that I will not ever default on this or any loan that I ever take out.

It is my hope, too, to be able eventually to make enough
not just to support myself fully but also to help my family, as well.
