Nana Kusi Frimpong – Teaching (Ghana)

Nana dreams of becoming a professional teacher but without a degree knows it may never be possible. To achieve his goal, Nana has enrolled in Offinso College Of Education. He plans on graduating in June, 2013 but without a loan he fears that he will need to defer his graduation. With a $506 loan, Nana plans on using the loan to pay for his tuition. In addition to his responsibilities at school, Nana currently works 35 hours a week and earns $6 a day. With a career in teaching, he expects to earn $14 a day, a substantial increase from before. With two other siblings Nana is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own without the assistance of loan. To help afford his school and living expenses, Nana currently works 35 hours a week as a Teacher Trainee, in the Ghana Education Service.
