Marcelline's story

Marcelline is married and has six children. She lives in a three-bedroom house in Bamenda Mezam Division of the North West region of Cameroon.

She has faced many challenges in life: deaths, sickness, poverty, and thieves breaking into her house.

She has taken and successfully repaid seven loans and says with this new loan requested, she will greatly expand her livestock farm. She is optimistic of her success in this business because of the capacity-building seminars she underwent. Also, her longevity in the business has led to a solid market base, while the increased need and increased use of manure is also a boost to her morale.

With the profit from this loan, she will improve her family's standard of living by providing them with three meals and paying for her family's medication, her children’s' education, and other basic necessities. She will also put back some profits into the business.

She prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rates, convenient repayment intervals, social networking, and the fact that GHAPE delegates decision making to them during bi-monthly meetings.


This loan is special because:

It is coupled with multi-faceted trainings to support the poorest in Cameroon.
