With the money from the requested loan, Bih Regina plans to buy a motorbike. The bike will be used to start an affordable transportation business for community members, carrying farmers to work and students to school, as well as transporting items like produce and firewood for sale. She thinks her business will succeed because she has good management skills and because she has been in business for a long time and not encountered any insurmountable problems.
Bih Regina says she will use the profit from the loan to educate her younger children, cater to family needs, and to arrange traveling documents for one of her children to go abroad in search of greener pastures. She says a GHAPE loan is preferable because loans are given without collateral securities, the disbursement process is not complicated, and an installment repayment plan is available.
