One of the experiences required as an undergraduate in most fields of higher education is doing an internship and gaining work experience. I had my first internship at Real Microcredit in 2018 when I was in my sophomore year at Ghana National Senior. My time at Real Microcredit helped me develop skills I initially had and helped me acquire new ones as well.
During my six-week internship at Real Microcredit, I got to understand the value of money as well as some mandatory bank procedures. I improved on my communication skills as I encountered people from all walks of life which I found very interesting.
I mostly spent half of my day behind my computer, where I documented information and kept records of clients. Aside from the financial incentives, I was allowed to work with friendly and yet professional co-workers and an even more understanding C.E.O. This, helped me mature faster as I tried to emulate their positive values and characters.
The highlight of my time at real microcredit was to be able to put smiles on the faces of people as we supported small business owners to be able to provide for themselves and their families and expand their businesses. In all, my time at the reputable institution helped shape me up for the courses I would be pursuing at the Lancaster University as well as my aspiration to pursue a career in the foreign affairs sector of the Civil Service. My dream is to be able to pass on everything I learnt during my time at Real Microcredit and be able to make a difference in the world, starting with the people near me.
