A loan of $1,200 helped growing of Vegetables.


Sonia's story

Sonia is married and has seven children. She has been a vegetable farmer with a small farm for many years. Initially, she had trouble growing her farm. With the advent of GHAPE in her community, she immediately joined the organization, received training on management and marketing techniques and later received her first loan of $40 in 2001. Since then, she has proven her credibility to manage and repay loans worth $880.

Given a loan of $1200, she plans to buy insecticides, fertilizers, and with manure collected from her pig farm, grow cabbages, tomatoes and pepper on a very large scale. Since this activity will be labor intensive, some youths will have the opportunity to get jobs on her farm.
