Tita Regina
Born in 1966, Regina A. is an unemployed widow with six children. Although she attributes her unemployment to her lack of education, she is appreciative of the fact that she is alive. Her desire is to give her children love and education. She states that she feels better each time she provides something small for her kids. Her inability to get investment capital to generate income motivated her to seek a loan from GHAPE. Using her previous loans, she succeeded in providing her community a source of food, meat, and manure.


Given a loan, she plans to buy piglets, pig feed, and seedlings and to pay for labor to clear farm land and help with hoeing. This investment will increase food supply in the community and provide income to her family. She is planning to use the profits generated to sponsor her children in school and to meet the basic needs of her family.


She plans to pay her loan in 24 months. The first installment is due on the fourth month from the date of loan disbursement.
