Anthony Oboh, who lives in the busy Shama Ahanta East Metropolitan area of Supomu-Dunkwa, is a man of many talents. Over the years, he has successfully fulfilled many ambitions with the help of Bayport Savings and Loans.
His first loan financed the purchase of a taxi, which helped fund his tertiary education – he completed a degree at the University of Education, Winneba. His taxi venture also helped him to pay for his daughters Jane and Antonia’s secondary education and to finance another business venture selling top-up cards, making unit transfers and offering a telecommunications service.
Another loan allowed Anthony to purchase land, where he grows plantains, seppers and okra. He now owns a small palm plantation. He supervises hired labour from his village to work on his farm, creating employment for the community.
The farm enabled expansion, and Anthony bought a full brass band ensemble, which he hires out for special events such as weddings.
