About Me

Atta Victor is my name and I was born in a village called Akomadan in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. I attended Akomadan SDA primary school. At stage 3 of my primary education, my father ran away leaving all the responsibility on the shoulders of my mother. My mother took the burden on herself and took care of me and my other three siblings. early childhood education was not easy for me and my mother. I walk on foot miles away to school because we can't afford transportation everyday. God being so good I managed to complete Junior High School. After I completed, I stayed in the house for two years to help my mother in her farm business to raise enough money to pay my admission fees to the secondary school. Life in the secondary school wasn't easy, I was always sent home for school fees. I missed some examination papers because I was owing. Sometimes I had to go and sit in the house for weeks working on peoples farms for money to support my schooling. But with all these, I managed to complete my secondary school with a good grade.

In my country, if you complete just secondary school, you don't fit well in any job market so I'm working harder to further my education to attain a better future. And also to fit well in the worlds demanding job market so that my children will not suffer the hardship I've passed through in life.

My Business

Education is very important in one's life. Education is highly recommended in my community so I've put it upon myself to continue my education so that I can help my family, my community and the nation as a whole. But education in Ghana is not an easy thing. It involves a lot of cost. Education is not easy for the poor. The cost fees, text books and other things that will aid you in your learning is very expensive but one becomes successful if he pass through all this. If am able to pass through all this and have a good education, I will be employed and I will save money for a better future for my children. My family and my community won't be also left out.

Loan Proposal

The loan I will raise will help me to settle educational difficulties I am facing in my education.
Firstly, I will pay my semester fees which amounts to $460 and also, students in my hostel go far away from the hostel to print out educational materials and information they use in their education. So I want to buy a Printer which cost $100 and a laptop which also cost $325 to start a small scale printing press. This will help me to earn income to expand this printing press business and also to repay my loan on time.

Thank you and God bless you for helping me this way.
