I am the first born of my parents among other eight siblings. I started my primary education at Badu Presby Primary School in the year 1986 at the age of eight (8) whilst staying with my grandma. I graduated to Asuafu SDA Junior Secondary School in 1992 and completed by Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in 1995. I proceeded to Yamfo Anglican Senior Secondary School ; having not satisfied with the Programme of study, I had to come back to Asuafu SDA Junior Secondary School where I joined the third year students to write another BECE in 1997. I proceeded to Techiman Adventist Secondary Technical School in 1998 and completed in 2000 with a certificate in Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.
I went through difficulties whilst rising to become the first University Graduate in my family. Sometimes I had to run away from school to look for some menial jobs to feed myself throughout my basic school up to the university.
Though I am gainfully employed as a graduate teacher, I thought it prudent to engage in other business to earn much to support my other siblings and take good care of my Wife and three children. After a lenghthy discussion with my wife, we choose to sell mobile phone recharge credits, which has yielded some good returns.
We started with Gh¢ 1,000.00 worth of capital but has now grown to Gh¢ 3,000.00
I earn a monthly profit of Gh¢ 600.00 after deducting all other expenses. I have been reinvesting part of the profit and use part for childrens education.
I intend to boost my inventory by buying more clothes to boost by cureent sales. I have already started with the clothing sales where I buy some on credit and sell after which I pay after sales.
When I get this money, I will buy more clothes from my suppliers and sell to get more profit.
My location is a strategic area and since l normally sell on credit to daily income earners, my business will not be affected much. I still believe I even make more sales
