Atte Godfrey
Atte Godfrey was born in 1961. He is married and has one child. He lost his father when he was still in primary school, and he couldn't continue his education because his mother was unemployed. Things became very difficult for him when thieves broke into his house and stole his saw mill, which was the only source of income. Sickness also contributed to his decline. Motivated by all these circumstances, he became a member of GHAPE in 1999. Since then, he has successfully and repaid six loans totaling $680.



Given a loan, he plans to invest it in the cultivation of plantain and palms, and in poultry and pig farming. People in his community are going to benefit in the sense that he is going to provide jobs for the community. With the profits, he is going to educate his only child and also take care of his hospital bills.



He plans to repay the loan in 24 months. Repayment will begin on the fourth month from the date of disbursement.
