About Me

Acheampong George is my name. A third born to a single parent mother of four children. My hometown is Sunyani is the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana.

Life at my childhood stage was a bit of struggle to survive in the midst of all my siblings.
Even though our house was located in the middle of the city, ironically the condition in the home was like a ghetto. I started schooling from stage one without going through any pre-school. After completing my elementary education, the attention of my mum was drawn toward my younger sibling. I gradually got into the arts.

In fact, this encouraged me to study graphic design at the secondary school level whilst still under apprenticeship at the art studio. Since life was not easy for me at home. I still have to spend some time with my master at the Art studio even when it was classes hours. Basically, this became the means through which I have to pay my school bills.

Life took a different turn for me when after school in 1993, our studio structure got burnt and my master got frustrated and traveled to his hometown after tireless efforts to raise money to build back the structure failed.

I had to bravely start with nothing, but by the grace of God things have gone on well in this art business.

My Business

I have worked as an artist all this while and still enjoy it. Hopefully, one of my three kids will take up from me as they always show interest in drawing cartoons.

Basically, I am in the graphic design industry. I produce banners, decorative wall hangings and other secretarial services. My services are always in demand since we bring into light what is in the mind.

My wall hangings and decorations are pictures and themes that I would like to use to express ideas to the general public.

I choose this work because I love it; notwithstanding the challenges I sometimes face. Profits generated through my services are monthly used to grow the business.

Loan Proposal

I wish to buy Frames, glasses, ornamental edge support, adhesive and Tags nails to help me to produce more Wall Hangings and Decorations for my Art gallery.

I would like to add about 30 pieces of Wall Hangings and Decorations to my Art gallery. These would cost me about $480.00. The sizes that I produce are 18x36 inches, 18x18 inches, 12x12 inches and 12x24 inches.

After producing about 30 pieces of these various sizes and can sell all for $ 600.00

This will increase my profit margin and it will help me to employ a hand in the business.
