  1. Hello,

    I graduated with an HND in Building Technology fro Tamale Polytechnic. After my national service i could get a job. My dad is abroad and got me a job last year. I rescinded the idea. My dad has a building plot where constructed a foundation of a building on.

    I asked for his permission and i erected structures on the foundation and started a mushroom project. Less than a year on i have developed full passion for Agriculture. My dad has offered to acquire a farm land for me and we are working on it.

    My question is: Am i legible/qualified to apply for the MBC program?
