Story: Kwame Asare Boadu, Kuntanase
THE Bosomtwe Rural Bank has presented a number of items, valued at GH¢700 (¢7 million), towards the National Farmers Day celebration in the Bosomtwe-Atwima-Kwanwoma District in the Ashanti Region.
They included 15 pairs of Wellington boots, 12 radio sets, two spraying machines and a box of machetes.
Mr Felix Owusu-Achiaw, the Supervising manager of the bank, who made the presentation at Kuntanase, the district capital, said the bank was proud to associate itself with the Farmers Day over the years.
He said it had been the culture of the bank to make donations during the event, and explained that this had been so because farmers constituted a respectable portion of the bank’s customer base.
Mr Owusu-Achiaw stated that the development of agriculture was very crucial to building the economy of the district and the nation as a whole, and promised that such assistance would continue in future.
The Presiding member of the Assembly, Mr Albert Marfo, who received the items on behalf of the assembly, thanked the bank for the gesture and expressed the hope that others would emulate their example.
The District Co-ordinating Director , Mr C.K. Dondieu, said the bank’s donation would go a long way to enrich the awards.
