Neh Isabella joined GHAPE in 2006 and has taken and repaid Empowerment Credit loans several times. She used the profit from her past loans to feed, clothe, provide medication for, and educate her children. Given a loan, she intends to invest it in poultry farming. She believes that this business will be a success because she has many years of experience farming poultry and also because there is high demand for poultry products. Neh Isabella thinks that this activity will help her community in that it will provide manure to farmers in her locality, it will provide employment, and also because it will increase the supply of chicken in the market, which will improve people’s eating habits.
With the proceeds from her loan, she will provide for her children and also increase her capital. She prefers a GHAPE loan because of the easy method of repayment, low interest rates, and also because of the regular education and training GHAPE provides to its members.
