Ngwele has a business making dresses. With this loan she plans to buy more material for the smooth running of her business (traditional wear, threads, equipment), and the rest of the loan will be reserved to facilitate the function of the business. She believes that her business will succeed because of her knowledge, the high demand for traditional dresses, the business location, and the regular customers who buy from her and resell in difference towns. The community will also benefit because they will not have to go a long distance to buy their dresses.
With her profits, Ngwele will be able to improve the housing conditions of her family, pay school fees, and expand her business. She prefers a loan from GHAPE because of the convenient repayment period, low interest rate, and the social education they provide.
