About Me

My name is Isaac Abiaw and I was born in the year 1975. I come from Dadieso, a farming community in the western region of Ghana. I was born by parents whose occupation was mainly farming. After completing primary school, I had to walk three kilometers daily in order to attend senior high school at Enchi in 1994 because there was no high school located in my community. Because my parents were peasant farmers, I always went to the farm with them before l got money to pay my fees. Unfortunately, my father died before I completed secondary school.
But because I was determined to pursue my education, I worked extra hard to fund my education. I completed university in the year 2009. After completing school, I taught in private school until I decided to establish my own school to educate the less privileged since education was not given much attention in my community. Because of the challenges that I have gone through, my children want to learn hard and become self-employed so that they can help others to succeed in life. I enjoy reading story books as my hobby.

My Business

I established this private school with the intention of providing education to my community members. I first started this by visiting house to house to teach the pupils at their various homes and later raised some temporary structure for the pupils. The establishment of the school is useful and in demand because most community members are now willing to send their wards to school and also reduce the burden of travelling long to a nearby community before having access to formal education. The principal aim of establishing this business is to enable children to have access to formal education and to become useful citizens in the society. The only source of revenue is the fees paid by the students and the parents teacher association of the school. The profit accrued is used to add more classrooms and also cater for the workers.

Loan Proposal

I am very much grateful to Zidiisha for how far they have brought my school. God bless you all.
I need a loan to purchase study desks for the pupils in my school. As the enrollment in my school keeps on increasing daily, there is a need for me to provide comfortable learning environment for my pupils which includes the said desks and others. I therefore plead with lenders to help me raise a loan to achieve this purpose. Thank you.
