Oheneba Opoku, a young Ghanaian man has recently resorted to social media to narrate how the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) program positively impacted his life. In his post on Facebook, Oheneba shared that through the program, he was able to save enough money from his Ghc700 monthly allowance to start his own barbering shop and take himself through driving school.
Recounting his journey, the young man shared that after his national service, he got the chance to be recruited into the NABCO training program. Throughout the three-year journey, he put money aside to purchase items towards establishing his own shop incase he is not maintained at his place of work.
He revealed that the payments were slow and at times and he had to borrow from his friends but he still appreciates the journey.
According to Oheneba, there are individuals he knows who were also able to make their training worthwhile.
“I have friends who now own a fish farming business through the Ghc700 monthly allowance, others went back to school for their top up degrees all through this nabco allowances and others got married too lol”, he wrote.
