Matilda was born in 1967 and is married to Mr. Chah Joseph Ntong. She has six children. The most painful thing she has had to bear in her life was the loss of her child and her father, and the biggest challenge she has faced has been to pick up the pieces of her life and move on again after these bad incidents.

She has taken GHAPE loans six times and paid them back. What she loves most about GHAPE is its policy of transparency, the fact that it gives everybody equal opportunity to grow out of poverty and the fact that GHAPE gives loans on a very low interest rate. She intends to rent a new farm, employ more task laborers and buy chemicals that will improve her harvest. She also plans to expand her palm oil business. This will benefit the community because she will employ members of her community and be able to provide vegetables and other farm products for their local market. She will also hire a sales person to help her with the palm oil business.

Her greatest dream is to settle her children to start off on their own with the profit from her business. She plans to repay her loan during the term. She expects that her first loan repayment installment shall be made on the fourth month from the date of disbursement of the loan.
