Loh Martou's story
Loh Martou is married with five children and lives in a three-bedroom apartment in the Bamenda, North West Province, of Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life including inadequate finances for her business and for her family needs, the death of her son and another child's accident. With the new loan requested, she will buy and sell palm oil, maize, beans and groundnuts. She holds a positive view of this business succeeding because she has regular customers who buy from her both wholesale and retail. Loh Martou has a good business site and high demand in her area of residence. With this business activity, the community will benefit because food items will always be available, she will sell to them at reduced prices, and she will ensure a regular supply to her customers. With the profit from this loan, she will cater to her family's needs and ensure her children are educated. She prefers a GHAPE loan because of low interest rates, convenient repayment schedules and also the members are trained on marketing and management skills before the loans are disbursed.
