Phebe
Born in 1955, Phebe is married and has seven children. She is proud that she and her husband were married in a traditional ceremony, to which she attributes their good luck that they were blessed with so many children. Unfortunately, her husband is dead.

With her previous loans from GHAPE, Phebe succeeded in growing and providing her community with cassava and ndjamadjama (huckleberry leaves -- a popular green vegetable). Given a loan, she plans to buy fresh manure, fertilizer, seedlings and chemicals to expand and improve her farm. She also intends to buy piglets to fatten and sell for their meat. She plans to repay the entire loan in 24 months.
