If given the new loan requested, she promises to buy chicks, feed for the chicks, chick medication and also get involved in a little bit of agriculture. From this activity, her community will develop widely. She will convince community members to buy the chicks and keep them to resell, so as to make profit. She will supply at low prices and also supply some on occasions warranting the need for chicken meat. She holds the positive view that her business will succeed because of her longevity in the business, experience and commitment.
With the profit from this loan, she will educate her children, provide medication for her children and also take care of other children of the family. She says GHAPE loans are preferable because of the low interest rate and no collateral before loan disbursement.
