About Me

I am Yelaakyepi Vincent. A 31 years old boy who was born in the upper west region of Ghana.I had my basic junior high and my second cycle education in the upper west region. Although it wasn't easy but by His grace and the help of my Dad who was a farmer I was able to go through it. After that I find job in a private laboratory as a cleaner and finaly gained the skills as a bench trainee. So I saved money and went to the University to atain acetificate in medical laboratory with which I am practicing now in Berekum municipality in Ghana. Berekum is located in the Brong ahafo Region of Ghana.The main work of the people are farming and trading.It is also a malaria endemic area in which the chilldren under five years suffers the most. So looking at it I decided to start screening them with the help of the malaria Rapid Diagnostic Test kits, which are faster than the microscopy method.

My Business

I have established the laboratory already.I have some equipment such as microscope,centrifuge ,colorometer, and the services I offer include haemoglobin test, urine ,stool, sputum ,sickling,blood grouping,hepatitis B,C, syphilis test and malaria. Also pregnancy and HIV test. I do all thes because although there is mass education going on but people still get sick and need to be treated propely. Again, the children under five years are the target now because ,they easily die as a result of the malaria attack. So I will need the Rapid Diagnostic Test Kits which are faster than using the microscope in order to save the children.

Loan Proposal

I will buy malaria rapid diagnostic test kids and other reagents to stock my laboratory to enable me cater for malaria cases as rapidly as possible especially children under five. I am also contributing my quota in my own small way to the global effort at combating malaria. Accurate and rapid diagnostic of malaria are key to combating the menace.
