Akwen Nkwenti
Akwen was born in 1956, and she is married and blessed with four children, all of whom are going to school. The fact that she was unable to acquire basic education because she did not go to school has made life very difficult for her, coupled with the fact that she was unable to cater for the family. The worst of it all was the fact that her children were unable to study freely because of fees, and they were also unable to have three square meals a day.

She was motivated to become a member of GHAPE in 2005 by her friends and relatives who are GHAPE members. Since then, she has successfully borrowed and repaid loans five times. The profit from these loans helped her pay her children's school fees and provide some basic needs like food for the family.

Given a loan, she plans to buy 3-week-old chicks, fowl feed and seedlings. She knows her business is going to succeed because she has acquired some basic training on finance management and how to choose a good business from GHAPE. She also says her community will obtain cheap table birds from her farm, and they will also have manure at a much cheaper cost.

She plans to use the profit from this loan to pay tuition fees for her children.
