Richard's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for his tuition fees, books and transportation.

Richard's story

Richard is a first-year student at Accra Polytechnic pursuing a three-year program leading to a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Accountancy. In five to ten years, Richard would like to become a professional accountant in one of the prestigious institutions in Ghana, so that he will earn good salary to support his family and community. It has always been his dream to become an accountant, so completion of this course will be a step in achieving his dream.

Mr. Osei Kwame, a Ghanaian businessman in the "Despite" group of companies, is Richard's inspiration. This is because, looking at where this businessman started from makes Richard believe that it doesn’t matter where or how you start; with determination and hard work, he can achieve the goal he is aiming for. “If I couldn’t have access to this loan I will not be able to pay for my fees and I will miss the admission and my future plans will be distorted. The only alternative will be to forgo my education and get a job to do and save before going back to school” says Richard.

Thank you for the support. Ghana is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa, and the people are very hospitable.
