Nathan Addo Larbi, an inspirational Ghanaian gentleman who sold bread to fend for himself has been able to achieve a first-class degree from the University of Cape Coast (UCC) , Siggy reports.
According to him, things got extremely tough when he was in level 200 and 300 particularly because his friends used to make fun of the fact that he was a bread hawker and money was tight at home.
“Majority of my programme mates made fun of me for carrying bread on my head but I endured because I knew that was the only option I had to support my parents at home,” he said.
As though he did not have to deal with a lot already, Nathan Addo decided to start his own enterprise when he got to level 400, which he calls the Sankofa Maize Connect Enterprise.
Just a year after officially registering his business of linking farmers to their clients, Nathan, who is currently having his national service, has employed three people including a 2017 graduate.
He tells YEN the business is doing quite well and the future looks promising because a number of investors are firmly on board.
