Helen Asoh's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy chicks, piglets, farm inputs and foodstuffs.

Helen Asoh's story

Helen is a widow with eight children with whom she lives a six bedroom apartment in Bafut, North West Region of Cameroon. She joined GHAPE in 2016 and has taken and successfully repaid one loan.

With the new loan requested she plans to increase her farm lands, involve herself with poultry and a piggery and the rest will be invested in her small retail business in foodstuffs.

She has a positive attitude that the business will succeed because she already has a mastery of these activities and there is an ever ready demand for her produce.

She says her activity will help the community since she will shorten their distance from going to far off markets and she will employ people to work in her farms.

With the profit from the loan, she will plough back some into her activities, pay children’s school fees, and provide basic necessities for the family.

She prefers getting a loan from GHAPE because the repayment schedule is moderate, low interest rates and the business knowledge she gets before receiving loans and no collateral.
