About Me

My name is David Tetteh. I am from a family of ten, and I am the youngest in among my siblings. I live at Korle Worko, which is a town at Accra Central. I attended John Wesly Methodist School for my primary and junior high school education. The school is a government school and i was transfered to a private school when i got to class 5. This was to get better education as the government system was failing then. My father is retired and on pension, my mother has been out of business for a long time now and it is my Auntie who has been helping me. I am currently a graduate of the University of Ghana. I graduated last year with a degree in Information Studies.

My Business

Currently i am having my national service which is a year long service to the nation. We are paid an amount of 350 cedis per month and this barely covers expenses for the month. I have started a little business on the side to help earn more income. I buy airtime vouchers and and retail them for a small profit. I would like to pursue a masters degree so i am saving for at, immediately after my national service.

Loan Proposal

I need financial assistance in order to complete my university
education. I am in my final year and it would really break my heart to
see all of the hard work I've put into my education go to waste. My
residential fees have increased drastically and my guardian (my aunt) is
backing out because she recently has retired and no longer has enough
means to help me. I really need this loan. Please kindly assist me.
Completing my degree will help me to become the person I want to be.
