Priscilia's story

She is married and is a mother of four children with whom she lives with in a six bedroom apartment in Tubah, North West Region of Cameroon. She has faced some challenges in life such as the death of loved ones, especially her child and parents, and poverty and sickness amongst other family problems. She joined GHAPE in 2016 and has taken and successfully repaid one loan.

With the new loan requested she plans to increase her farmland in size and in content by increasing the use of fertilizers to enhance yields. She has a positive attitude that the business will succeed because she already has a mastery of these activities and there is an ever ready demand for her produce.

She says her activity will help the community since she will shorten their distance from going to far off markets and there will increase food supply in the community.

With the profit to be gotten from the loan, she will plough back some into her activity, pay her children’s school fees, and provide the basic necessities for the family.

She prefers getting a loan from GHAPE because the repayment schedule is moderate, there are low interest rates and no collateral and because of the business knowledge she gets before receiving loans.

This loan is special because:

It is coupled with multi-faceted trainings to support the poorest in Cameroon.
