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

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as seedlings, insecticides, and fertilizer and to pay for labor.

Esther's story

She is married and a mother of seven living in a six-bedroom apartment in the Timeshui Quarter of Tubah subdivision in the North West Region of Cameroon. She has faced some challenges in life such as the death of her niece and sickness for seven years, which led to an operation.

She joined GHAPE in 2016 and has taken and successfully repaid two loans.

With the new loan requested, she plans to increase the size of her farm, pay for labor, and buy more seeds and other farm inputs.

She has a positive attitude that the business will succeed because she already has a good mastery of the activity, a fertile farmland and a ready market for her farm produce.

She says her activity will help the community since she will supply foodstuff to them at moderate prices and thus reduce their distance from going to far off areas to buy.

With the profit to be gotten from the loan, she will plough 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, there are low interest rates and she receives basic education on the utilization of funds given by GHAPE officials before empowerment.
