About Me

My name is Isaac Baccah. I live in Accra, Ghana, and I am the secondborn of three siblings.

I managed to enter the University of Ghana despite financial hardship.
I had to wait a couple of years after completing high school for my parents
to raise money for tuition for me to be able to enroll in the I.T. program at the University.

My elder brother works a full-time administrative job at a school and also runs
a weekend side-business making and selling fruit juices. He has helped me when possible.

Due to increased hardships in their own lives, though, my parents and elder brother
have been unable to help me any further with my educational costs.

My Business

I graduated from the University of Ghana in 2018, with a degree in Information Technology, thanks in part to the kindness of the wonderful lenders at Zidisha. After performing my National Service for a year, I have been trying to acquire a good-paying job for the past two years but, although I have been working for a tech company, the job unfortunately doesn't pay the bills. It turns out that most good-paying jobs require certain certifications. The certifications I want to enroll in include the CCNA and Comptia Server+. Thank you so much for this platform and thank you to every one of the lenders at Zidisha.

Loan Proposal

If my loan proposal is accepted and if it is funded, I would use the loan to help pay for my second-year university expenses: tuition, textbooks, accommodations, and meals.

Even though I sometimes receive financial assistance from my parents, and sometimes from my elder brother, too, their financial help is not able to be consistent; and even though I work two part-time jobs, there still just is not enough money to cover all of the basic costs.

Your help is needed and always is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
