Our Story, Your Story: Kofi Dadzie

Whenever Kofi Dadzie, CEO of Rancard told his mother at the end of the school term that he had come first, she would respond “why weren’t you half?” Kofi explains that his mother meant well by consistently asking him this impossible rhetorical question.

Our Story, Your Story: Prince Kofi Amoabeng

Frustration is an emotion we are all too familiar with. It has the ability to consume every morsel of our being and can turn the sweetest little angel into a ball of raging madness. It creates a powerhouse of energy within us begging to be unleashed. The million-dollar question is how exactly do we deal with this pent up energy? Do we burst at the seams with a thirst for destruction or do we harness this surge into a hunger for construction? In 1997, Prince Kofi Amoabeng was frustrated! Tired of being rejected, he conceptualized the idea of setting up a ‘finance house’ to provide timely and appropriate finance for businessmen like himself who were struggling to receive financial assistance from the traditional banking sector.
