but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy chicks, feed and their medication.

Lydia Foreu's story

She is married and is a mother of eight children with whom she lives with in a four-bedroom apartment in the Njenka quarter of Bali subdivision of the North West Region of Cameroon. She has faced some challenges in life such as the death of her parents and her daughter, and her brother having a mental problem,

She joined GHAPE in 2015 and has taken and successfully repaid two loans.

With the new loan requested, she plans to expand her business by buying more chicks, the necessary poultry farm inputs and wood to heat up the chicks.

She has a positive attitude that the business will succeed because she already has a mastery of this activity and also because there is an ever-ready demand for her birds.

She says her activity will help the community in that she will provide them with chickens and employment, as she will employ a caretaker on the farm.

With the profit to be gotten from the loan, she will plow back some into her activity, pay her children’s school fees, and provide basic necessities for the family.

She prefers getting a loan from GHAPE because the repayment schedule is moderate, the interest rates are low, and she gets business knowledge from GHAPE officials before empowerment.
