About Me

I am Ankamah Emmanuel and my parents are Mr. & Mrs. Ankamah Oduro . We all live in Donfete which is located at Berekum. I began my elementary school at Berekum AKAB school complex and furthered to Kumasi Prempeh College.
After completing that, life wasn't easy for me for the reason that I stayed in Kumasi with a brother of mine who was then a plantain farmer to learn farming practically.
Today, I among the big young farmers in this locality. Maize and plantains are the crops I mostly grow. My hobby is reading. Thank you!

My Business

My business is one that grows plantains and maize. In the beginning, I was able to raise 32 bags of maize half a year. I am excited in this business because many are the incentives which include the good profits and the security in agriculture. I have a contract with some schools' headmasters, some markets' women who always come for goods during harvesting. Currently, I have just harvested about 6 acres of maize of which I have regrown another on the same land. Having sat down to analyze things,I have to employ a potential youth to help me in the filed. I am seeking a way forward to add more acres to the farm size so as to serve my country. Thank you.

Loan Proposal

I can't adequately express my gratitude and thanks to the team of this organization and the generous lenders for the great joy they always put in my heart. I am now transformed with the help of this wonderful organization.
The previous loan I took out was used to expand my farm size from 4 acres to 6 acres. If this loan is given, I will increase my farm size to about 8 acres. I will also buy: about 20 bags of fertilizers which may cost $120, agrochemicals like weedicides and pesticides of about 20 boxes each (will be much help) which may also cost about $210. Again, 4 spraying machines will be needed which in total may cost about $600. Thank you!!
