Magdalene Mah
Magdalene is married with three children. Painful memories of her inability to buy medication for herself and her kids motivated her to take the first investment loan of $40 from GHAPE in 2003. Her immediate goal is to raise money for medication and tuition for her children’s education. Her dream is to raise her own capital and stop greatly depending on loans. With her second and third loans she succeeded in providing fast food, manure, and meat to her community.

Given her experience in cooked food and pig-farming and the demand for these services, with a loan of $500 she plans to expand her restaurant and piggery with food-flask, pots, plates, cups, 3 piglets, pig-feed and medication, sticks to increase the size of her fence, and to set aside money for transportation. With increased stock she will provide restaurant services, manure, meat and temporary employment to her community.

She plans to pay her loan in 18 months. The first repayment installment shall be made on the fourth month from the date of disbursement of the loan.
